Had loads of Polar spares in the box so when someone sent me a free empty 40th Polar card I thought I'd have a go at re-carding with VINTAGE gear.
I was quite pleased, got it very close to the original, there's even an original leaflet inside...

Fiddly indeed, you got to get the sewing needle out and thread it through the holes once you've postioned the gear in the right place, obviously one piece at a time. You'll never get it exact though.

Question Vintage gear on a 40th card. Is that more or less anti-purist than a VAM in 40th gear? Whatever..looks good to me!

Good idea , but will you be keeping it as such ? & How good is your memory ?
You don't want to go selling it off as 40th when it's VAM.
I myself am crap at both!! If it's sealed , I get cold sweats & remembering if I'd done something like this..............Forget it ! I wouldn't have the box left anyway lol.

It looks the business though mate. I admire you restraint , I need councilling on how to leave things alone.

LOL. Really it was an experiment that I always wanted to try and as I never had a Polar Explorer vintage card but an empty 40th lying around thought I'd give it a go using what I had. No fear of forgetting, it has 2006 printed on the back of the box, although I might forget the kit is vintage!!! affraid
I've just completed an Armoured CC but all 40th this time and that was harder because of the radio stand's 3 feet, each foot goes in it's own loop...tough to do I can tell you!
