That looks so good, mate.
How about them transparent dangling carrots
How about that ever elusive kudo

Thanks :wink:

Still to do: add plastic shielding on the back of the stand to close it, add may extra spectators and add more advertising. Still thinking if I would fencing at the front of the stand. Most stands in the 80-ies had fencing I think?

Any other suggestions how I can improve it?

That looks like a good start mate... very similar to mine which has since been pulled down and will be undergoing a full upgrade very shortly.

Very nice stand blues.bass. Would love to see some more pictures from close by. What did you use for the fences?

Now with the back sheets added:

Still to add:

fans
advertising and fences at the front

I was thinking maybe to add plexi glass instead of a fence at the front? But that's not really 80-ies style...

Thanks.
Sorry I don't have any more pictures, and I just took that one with my cell phone on a whim as I wasn't all that happy with it.
It's currently being refurbished, and I'll post some pictures when it's done.
The fences where some old OO/HO scale (Hornby I think) line side fencing (used for model railways) that I picked up really cheap at a hobby fair.

I don't have any more pictures, and I just took that one real quick with my cell phone as I wasn't all that happy with it or the rest of the stadium.
It's currently being refurbished and rebuilt, and I'll post some pictures when I've got that stand built at least.
