'Here's one I made earlier'

Postby Warn » 27 Oct 2012, 10:42

About 1960, developed through the sixties after several tries it ended up like this at the end of the sixties. Moved out of the parents house, stored it in the cellar.....bit damp....little flood...gone, but not forgotten....

Thought I'd share it.

Indeed, and this setup could only be dreamt about by most Subbuteo players at the time. :grin:

Very well done. :clap:

It must have been heartbreaking to lose it after all the work that went into it. Great to have the photo's though. Wish I had seen it, don't suppose there were many as good as this one in the 1960's.

Thanks lads.

Airfix soldiers, cowboys, etc formed the crowd. Bit of a waste on reflection.

The floodlights lit the pitch really well.
4 x 25w pigmy bulbs in each one!
One big problem....when they got hot they scorched the casing, which was balsa...never got around to solving that one.
