Right gents here's the area for any general discussion and chat regarding the GB

Decals my @r$e!

Team, your timing is immaculate !
An extremely short run "kit" recently arrived that is firmly in this space. It has been on the procrastination cycle of "put it on the bench, look at it, take it off the bench" for about 2 months, so sits still unstarted. This is exactly what I need to get the thing underway
Now to NOT start it before the Oneth of March, should be a doddle.

So, getting my head around this one, we are looking at stuff like, say,  the Mad Max Police interceptors type of vehicles or a bright red Yorkshire Fire Service Avro Vulcan Water Bomber?

So my idea of a rescue train could be the basis for this build? I'm going to have to sit this one out until my circumstances change.

I'm looking at getting a set of US-style blue/red lights for a 1/24 car I have in the stash. Fujimi do a set which could provide for 2 cars https://www.hiroboy.com/124_Police_Patrol_Car_Parts_Set--product--14977.html#

Plenty of decal sets out there at prices so low it's a steal  :lol:

Also looking for some US Police helo markings to go on an AH-1G - Any good websites that show a wide range of schemes?

I just need to buy within the UK to avoid shipping issues.

And as is quite common with Hiroboy, that kit's not actually in stock at the moment.  :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Nick, if you want you can have a rummage in one of the my grey plastic storage boxes. I'm sure one of the boxes has those parts.

Yes, mate, both of those are in the scope of this GB. :thumbsup:

Don't sit it out, just change emphasis.  Write a backstory or two. All you need is imagination (we all know you have that) and a means of posting.

It's time to make AIR POLICE! Police that fly around in the sky and "pull over" other air craft just like they do on the ground with automobiles. Put some lights on top and police decals.  :wacko:

I had thought about doing this a good while back and had forgotten all about it! Good opportunity to go for it, now, that I've been reminded and there's a GB for it. In my mind I picture a Cessna 172......   I have some of those and some generic police decals so all I'd really need are some overheads and I could probably make my own from something.  :mellow:
