The one that intrigued me most yesterday as my mind wandered far from what it should have been concentrating on was Holland 88...mainly as this simple question occurred to me:
Did Subbuteo ever produce this kit?
From what I recall, Holland only ever had the plain orange shirt in Subbuteo form and it'd be one hell of a complex kit to produce at such a small level.
Having recently had far too much fun whipping up some Subbuteo style kits for the League of Blogs, it was only a matter of time before I set about producing one. And here it is...
|Holland - Euro 88 Final|
I posted this on Twitter and John Devlin from True Colours pointed out the orange shorts were of course only worn in the final...so...a few tweaks later and...
|Holland 88 Pre Final|
It was only natural, having spent an age getting the pattern right, that I then use it for the other well known uses of the same design. USSR 88 and West Germany's away kit from Italia 90 (I believe they wore it in a semi final...can't remember who they played...ahem)
|USSR 88 & W Germany 90|
So...who else should I re-create? Denmark 86 is in the pipeline and there was a suggestion to create a wallchart for all Euro's / World Cup winners...sounds like a new project to me!
Leave your suggestions here or drop us a line on twitter.
UPDATE: Denmark 86
UPDATE 2: England 82
