Just give'em a marked vest (cheesy TV style) or windbreaker (the FBIs fave) over the civies.

I built a CDC (Center for Disease Control) Landcruiser for the Scale Cannonball Run one year.
Landcruiser 80 Series 003 by Fred Maillardet, on Flickr

For this GB I was thinking maybe a Gotham City Police Dept Dodge Charger using the Lindberg kit.


Plus a Flying Doctor aircraft and maybe something Biggles Special Air Police.

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Master Box do some 1/24 figures in a heist theme that would fit nicely into a cheesy TV theme.

Conversely, the bad guys in the range would fit Jon's first pic.  :thumbsup:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Transport Police is another one and presumably armed services each have their own  police  personnel and medics and firefighters

(or 'loco,' whatever,.... didn't get to see if it was an entire train)


That 'Police' Class 37 was the only vehicle they painted for the advert, there wasn't a train behind it at all. The whole thing was to advertise that the then new HST's could cruise at 125 mph.

The loco became so famous Hornby even had one painted like that in their model railway catalogue!  :o

Three Inches Under:
https://www.threeinchesunder.com/

They have lots of parts for Emergency and funeral vehicles, sirens, light bars, beacons, radios etc.  The casting doesn't look brilliant, but they probably clean up well.  Mostly 1/25 scale, they other scales as well.


Cooer, I've never heard of them before, but they certainly make some interesting stuff. Good link, thanks Mossie.  :thumbsup:

I'm still trying to work out where they get their name from.............  :-\
