Homage to classic Subbuteo HW team catalogue poster

Post by oldhamblue » 26 Sep 2018, 13:17

This is my second display cabinet using foamboard to hold the figures in place. I used a slab of normal foam in my first effort quite a few years ago now, and I found that it wasn't ideal in holding the figures securely as it tended to 'push' the figures out from the display. Plus I wasn't particularly happy with my initial results so decided to come up with something more aesthetically pleasing so that my wife would agree to having it hung up in our lounge!

It's been a while since I posted on the forum. I kind of 'fell out of love' with Subbuteo due to a number of personal issues but the time I spent building the display has helped re-energise my interest in the hobby and it has spurned me on to continue to try and complete all of my single player collections!


No doubt the more eagle eyed will have noticed that my display is missing the classic Ref 61 claret kit version and my Ref 148 Monaco is the second version with the red shorts and socks. I always thought that my original display (which had been unceremoniously placed to one side in my attic study for a number of years)was complete as per the classic catalogue poster! :(

I'd be very grateful if anyone could help me source these two HW spares. I can either work out a direct swap deal involving other HW spares that you may need or I don't mind paying cash.

Brilliant!!!
It all seems very easy, this revolution game
But when you start to really play things won't be quite the same
Your intellectual theories on how it's going to be
Don't seem to take into account the true reality
