Chelsea away 11/12

I'll be honest, there are not many EPL kits for the new season that I like the look of, except this one

I'm not a big fan of Chelski, but have to say I do like the new away kit.

Escape to Victory 2011

I've had a bit of a break from painting over the past few weeks.  I've been on holiday and I've played in a Subbuteo tournament, finishing as plate winner.

As part of the subbuteo tournament I played in, I also came away with the "golden boot" award for scoring the most goals.  My prize wasn't a golden boot however, it was a blank team to paint up!

The kit I've decided to paint up is very vaguely based on the kit worn by the Allies in the Escape to Victory film, with the main difference being the shorts and socks.

Here's how it turned out

Austria 1990 World Cup

The latest request I've had is for a kit based on Austria from the 1990 World Cup.

Italia 90 was the first World Cup I can remember watching and is definately my favourite.  I can't remember much of the 86 World Cup (except for the Hand of God!) and was only very young in the 82 World Cup so don't have any memories of that.

Roger Miller's corner flag dancing, Nessum Dorma, the John Barnes rap and Gazza's tears; what's not to love about Italia 90! That's not even mentioning the football!

Anyway, here's how the team has turned out
