Police Truck


American police have used armored vehicles and fully automatic weapons for about 100 years.


This Matchbox vehicle is a riot control vehicle for police use.


It has some nice features, it's big and has fold out armored screens.


I use Caesar Miniatures modern figures as SWAT police.

Nice looking vehicle; I'd try and get one, but it looks like it might be too big to fit in with my HO scale stuff; in your opinion, how does it look next to an HO scale M-60? Does it dwarf the tank?

shtogun6, it is a school bus size vehicle, or very large motor home. So while it is longer than an HO M60 it is probably okay. I only have one, because like the halftrack with the leopard it is pricey and rare.

Thanks! I've never seen one in the store, but I will keep looking. I think it would make a great armored engineer/recovery vehicle!

Mike Creek said...

shotgun6, I agree. I have only one in my collection so it's staying as a police vehicle, but your idea has merit.

Figures not included?

Mike Creek said...

No, figures are from Caesar Miniatures. Matchbox does sometimes include a couple figures with larger sets this one would have been a natural.
