HW056 Ajax

Post by Sickage Flickage » 02 Jun 2015, 22:10

Another one I've been on the lookout for, but the problem for me with this reference is that the red stripe is usually painted so thin it barely resembles the actual kit, where the stripe is wider than the collar, easily as wide as the white stripe on the Birmingham City Penguin shirt.

That's what I liked about this one, even though the painting could be a bit neater, the outworker has at least tried to copy the real kit.

At least I hope it was an outworker and not a re-painter! The team looks genuine to me but again your views would be much appreciated.

Thanks Dawn / Odi / Alberto

Alberto, are later versions of this Ref more likely to have a wider stripe?

Sorry for the delay in my answer...
Well, it is quite common see the early versions of ref 56 with a very thiny vertical stripe. From the middle of seventies stripe may change from thiny to large, no rule.
To understand the "age" of the team you can see the bases.
