I have a dozen police cars in my collection with various liveries. DeAgostini has a series of 1:43 models from around the world with accompanying magazines, unfortunately for me the magazine is in Russian (I don’t speak Russian), but it has some cool pictures.
I have three models from this series a 1959 Jaguar Mark II, a Holden FE (NSW Police) and a cool looking Datsun 240 Z in Japanese Police Livery.
The back of the magazine shows some of the other models available, I don’t know why I missed out on getting that Renault Alpine A310, I don’t have any French police cars or “Gendarmerie“, and I love the look of Renault Alpines. Update: 27 October 2014…found an Alpine 🙂
DeAgostini Holden FE Police 1:43 For rounding up bold bushrangers.
DeAgostini Nissan Fairlady Z 1972 1:43 (Datsun 240Z) in the cool Japanese livery reminiscent of so many mangas.
Also from Japan this Tomica Toyota Crown, which a previous owner has painted to look like a Japanese Military Police Car. Meter Made is inspired by a vehicle, which I understand is a common sight in Japan, when meter maids give out parking tickets and escape in a vehicle such as this.
Bburago Alfa 156 “Carabinieri” 1:43 perfect for remake of the Italian Job, now I just need three Minis.
Welly FSO Polonez “Policja” 1:43. I wonder how much fear this strikes into the hearts of Polish criminals in their BMWs? Maybe a Porsche 996 will help…
The Majorette Porsche 996 has at least 32 variants with different police liveries.
For smaller scale criminals a Matchbox 1956 Buick Century 1:72 and a Hot Wheels 1964 Lincoln Continental 1:64.
Welly Ford Crown Victoria “Chicago Police” and Siku Mercedes “Polizei”.
These two from Kinsmart have similar details, on the doors, a badge stating “Police Department Founded 1781” and even the same number “388” on their roofs. The ’67 Camaro Z-26 is 1:37 scale, the ’67 VW Beetle is 1:32 scale. The Beetle reminds me of a Corgi Police Beetle, I haven’t found the Corgi Beetle but I was pleasantly surprised to find a Corgi Cortina GXL “Police” at Drybridge Market.
This pair look cool, but where will they put the crooks once they catch them? Matchbox Lamborghini Gallardo and DeAgostini Nissan Fairlady Z
Last and definitely least in my collection.
This is a model of a Skoda Octavia in Georgian Police Livery( “პოლიცია”). It is cheap Chinese plastic and only vaguely looks like an Octavia. I only bought it because of the Georgian livery.
