Terracing has arrived and I am distressing them two colours of concrete ...
Can't help but think they just need a little hit of red ...
I have a vague recollection of crowd crush barriers ( not the grey pen fencing ), you know, the type you used to lean on before all-seaters came along. Am I imagining it, or can you still get hold of them.
If not, I'll have to make some.

Thanks, Garry. I'll keep 'em peeled.
Didn't think they were a figment of my imagination.

Perhaps if anyone's going to Renishaw tomorrow they could keep a eye out for some

The SSG ones were way too big.

Good idea, Garry ...

You're probably right, Ian ...

I'm so flickin' impatient, I'll no doubt come up with some alternative to satisfy my craving!

Been looking for some to go on the new open terrace I've just made. Are they too big for the standing figures ? (WeHonest type) If they are I won't bother as they're not cheap to pick up. Not sure why SSG ever produced them when they only did seated supporters scratch

Thanks for the tip, Garry! I'll bid for these. Desperate to add them to the terracing behind the goal. They'll be the perfect finishing touch.

Where do you get your standing figures from, Gully?

Yes they are the ones I buy. Buy the 1000 at a time as the price is much cheaper. They can take quite a while to arrive sometimes.

I was going to bid for those barriers but if you want them I won't bother. Spud seemed to think they were a bit out of scale.

The scale isn't a concern for me, Gully.
I just need to make the terracing a bit more interesting visually, as I plan to just have 2 grumpy fans on there bemoaning the Dell of the South performance on a weekly basis - much like the old boys in The Muppet Show!

Very Happy

Yes, spotted these, and some naked ones.
Got very excited about them. In a non-sexual, hobby crafting sort of way, I hasten to add!

Of course, Gully. Joe and I ( my lad ) have a kind of ROTR, Toy Story concept in mind, with a view to incorporating it with a Solo or Dice League. Stadium is rattling along!
Floodlights are next on the shopping list!

I love you

Don't be put off, or refrain from bidding to be kind, Gully. Somebody else may outbid me. If you fancy them, go for it, my friend.
I'll cope. I'm a pretty stable fella.

No I haven't bid. I was in two minds anyway as Spud had put me off. They would be no use to me if they did not match the scale of the standing figures. I also really prefer stuff boxed.

can't wait to see your ROTR style story. Very Happy

Thanks, Gully.

We're calling it DELL OF THE SOUTH instead of ROY OF THE ROVERS after the Solo team.
The figures ( like Toy Story ) will lead a double life when nobody is looking, except Joe will discover their parallel world and help to run their fun. The managers and fans will all be active too.
