Am i right in thinking these are refs 28, 36 and 154 that have been repainted and touched up.

None of them look too bad as they are by which they have been done neatly. What do you want to do ? Strip them down totally and repaint from scratch or with the 36 for example try to remove the black gloss?

i have some teams like these and have a similar dilemna. I have a 38 which like that 36 has the shorts repainted in black gloss. The shirts are in tact and it seems a shame to me to remove that as well.

I like projects like these and look forward to seeing what you decide to do mate.

No, these were totally repainted teams in gloss, been stripped back to white or flesh plastic then painted to a team or teams I like, the 126 shorts have been redone so they are matt, the WBA away is fine and the 245 was a spur of the moment thing, I have also done a 293 which looks the hounds, BTW, these will not end up on Ebay pretending to be the real thing....

trust me to get the wrong end of the stick.

I thought they looked neat.

it was the shiny look to the 126 that threw me into thinking you were going to do something to them. you got the stripes good as I thought they were original

as I say they look good .

I thought the same Tel...thought you were going to strip them and paint again. Didn't realise you already had...

What green did you use? It looks the wrong colour to be like SSG...maybe just the camera or computer screen mind. Did you colour match with original green?

Either way...they look nice :-)

Nice painting style - look very authentic.

One thing though, shouldn't the OPS have the white socks and the WBA the yellow ones?

Sorry, I got the wrong end of the stick too and like cityfan thought the black shorts were gloss. Want to attempt the 126 & WBA away myself someday. Nice painting there.
