I do remember it. Nice kit (better than the horrible grey kit they had around that time) I recall the likes of Beardsley Ginola Barton Lee Peacock and Beresford in it. It was the season they imploded at the end of the season and United snatched the title and the famous Keegan TV Interview meltdown.

Outstanding painting...true story time, when i was ICF we got invited to an end of season party at Farringdon in London with them 1992, so reluctantly me, Frank, Bill, Cass, Mickey and Andy Swallow went...the niceseties lastest about an hour and it went off.

Lesson, most Geordies can't hold their drink and are terrible hosts, they petrol bombed us at St James early 80s pics are online, but they tip strippers VERY well

If you was there, you'd know.
Ex ICF read the books see the films, laugh, and then ask what really happened

These are fantastic. I really like your work.

Just a quick question, how did you do the white decal work? I did a bit of decal work earlier in the year and could not for the life of me print white. What's the secret?

Thanks :D

Are you ready....?

Home inkjet printers can't print white, that is unless you want to spend a few thousand pounds plus, and even then the technology (and resolution) isn't perfect. It's a pretty niche market, and probably unnecessary in the home market as most media is already white. The old Alps printers used to be able to but they are all but extinct, and were a nightmare to use anyway. The secret is not to print white, the figure is white already, so for example a white badge on a red shirt is simply a transparent badge on a red shirt.

Sometimes it is a real pain, currently I'm doing an Arsenal 83 shirt which is all red with white logos, it would be much easier to paint the shirt red then apply the logos, but instead I have to decal the whole shirt. Some people make a small decal with the logo or number and outline it with the shirt colour, then paint around it, but for me it looks really amateurish as you'll never match inkjet inks with paint because they are slightly transparent and produce a different finish to paint, and also the decal will always be slightly raised.

A few years ago someone created an ink that could be used in a standard inkjet printer but as it was in some way military grade he couldn't get a license to distribute it. I guess it's similar to the ink/paint they use on military clothing/vehicles?
