1 Question for Kieron about police cars on Mon Oct 14, 2013 8:16 pm

Kieron!

What colour scheme does your police car have?

I'm planning to create one with the light bar you gave me, but it occurs to me that making it look similar to yours might be useful.

I'm hoping you've gone for black and white... Very Happy

At the moment it's plain white and I think I'll leave it like that and add transfers. Don't worry about difference. State and local police which have different vehicles and uniforms, which is an easy explain.

Turns out I was wrong about the light bars by the way, the pointy set is right for NYPD, and the LAPD ones tend to have the straight bar (although Los Angeles gets weird because they have "cities" within it with their own police depts as well - so Manhattan Beach, where I stay when I go there, has its own cars, which have a mixture of pointy and non-pointy lights).

I realise no one cares about this, I'm just pontificating to myself. I'm not sure which way to paint a car, and might actually go for the Liberty City scheme from GTA (which is black and white but with blue stripes a la NYPD).

At some point I'm going to use one of the sets of light bars to convert a cheap car into a Sheriff's Dept car and get some cops in wide brimmed hats to use in rural situations.

On a side note, have you seen the Reaper Bones plastics from their Chronoscope line? There are some potentially useful sculpts in there for about a quid.

Oh and also, Hasslefree sell individual sprues of the Studio Plastic Zombies. They're better than the WF ones but usually come in boxes of 60.

I've seen the Studio zombies before, they do look much nicer than the WF ones.

Not sure about Reaper though, they're listed at 25mm? Also the website is a bit weird, is there a UK supplier somewhere?
