Re: cityfan247 - Custom Paint Jobs

Thanks for the kind words Paul.

It's been a while since I have done any painting. I think that Leeds is probably the last one I did.

I do have some original figures left over that I have stripped down so may do some more teams before long. Just need to decide on which teams to do.

Re: New to Subbuteo - Where to begin with HeavyWeight Club Editions?

That particular set did sometimes come with HW figures if it had the green card inner tray. The polyystyrene inners like the one shown are usually LW or Zombie figures. Zombie first started to appear around 1977-78 soon followed by LW figures (first hand painted then machine painted) HW figures were...

Re: cityfan247 - Custom Paint Jobs

Hi G As you can see I paint exclusively classic heavyweight style teams so try to get close to the original HW subbuteo so I use Humbrol (matt) enamel paints (occasionally Revell enamels). Many other painters use these to keep faithful to the originals. You could use acrylics which are water based s...

Re: www.subbuteostadium.com

I have used this site to buy the LED's for the classic pylons. They are much brighter than the original subbuteo ones. Top drawer. I am delighted with them. The guy who has set it up is Ronald who is Hogron66 on this forum. There is a thread on the Members Stadiums topic http://www.subbuteoforum.org...

Cheers Gary.

See if anyone else has come across him. Might be worth involving the police if he's doing this regularly.

Re: Alex Hymer-

I also purchased a joblot from him10 days ago on Gumtree. I get the feeling now it was the same lot as you and we've been scammed. Like you paid through paypal but had no items or responses to my messages. He wanted to be paid via the 'friends and family ' option on paypal. I assumed to save the fee...

Re: Dickinson's Real Deal

Yep I saw it. You didnt get a really good look at the Munich but it appeared complete and in good condition. Bit of damp on the lid but overall looked very tidy. I was more intrigued in the 'bag full' of teams we didnt get to see. There were a couple of boxed teams on show. A rather fine looking San...

Re: LED Display

That looks stunning mate. Any Subbuteo enthusiast would love to have something like that on display. Love it.

Looks like you just need a 94 Sampdoria and a 265 Philadelphia Atoms to complete the 1-324 HW collection. I wish I could help you with that but I can't...can anyone here help?

Re: Subbuteo Rugby Players

You can get football style figures and rugby bases from both Paul (Lloydie) at World Subbuteo Rugby who stocks Top Spin figures or Mark Parker (santiago table soccer) who stocks.....wait for it...santiago figures.

I am not aware of any new blank 'chunky' style rugby figures out there.

Thanks for the local knowledge on Innsbruck regd mate. It has been a chequered history for football in Innsbruck . Mergers & clubs folding. As one of Austria's major cities and the flagbearers for the Tirol region I have always felt Innsbruck has under achieved. As you say Regd after the merger with...
