Hi A-Team,
thats a nice looking kit mate... looks like a later model which is why it has the black hoops mate...

Thanks Diamond. Here are a couple recent pics of mine. Not sure of the exact year, but the badge and hoops put it at early to mid 50's.

Great kits, but is it just me losing my mind or did this thread lose a few posts in the last day or 2 regarding using these for an 80's hair band!
