Berkovic and Howey, City

Here I am again! Back on it, with two posts in two days, and no less than 6 figures between them!

Here are a couple of Man City repaints:

While the kit is mainly the same for these two, there are some differences. Most obviously, I guess is the shorts colour. This was requested by the customer- I think they wore the dark blue ones in away games if they clashed.

Other differences: The shirt sponsors (which changed from Eidos to First advice in 2002) and the font for the names/numbers on the backs of the shirts. This is because City were promoted to the Premier League in between changing these strips. New League = New font!

And my favourite thing about these figures? The hooped socks of course!!

Dynamo Kiev

Well, it's been a while, so I thought I'd make it up to you with 4 repaints in one blog post!

Here's my Dynamo Kiev back catalogue!

My first Kiev repaints, and also my first order from the USA! Cracking the tough American market!!

I was very pleased with these- the blue kit in particular was very intricate considering that it is quite plain, but I feel I'm getting neater all the time... I no longer fear adidas stripes!!

As ever, I was pleased to be able to use the correct number font for the back of the shirts!

If you look closely, you'll also see a Captain's band on Luzhny, which was a surprise to me! I would have guessed that Sheva was the captain of that team!
