Red box - Gangsters + Policemen and civilians

"whose da Boss?"

The idea is a good one...original to say the least, except the figures need a lot of flash removing which in some cases takes nearly as long as painting the bods themselves.
The car used is a repainted 1982 Mattel Classic Packard.

Bonnie and Clyde...well they aren´t actually labelled as such but ....why not? 
The car is also from Mattel and repainted.

"Where´s dat Bugsy Malone ??"

Next up is from the Policeman and civilians set.
Again, the set comes with a lot of extra plastic.
which need to be removed. Painstaking to say the least, but in the end it was worth it.
Repainted.Car from a "no-name" Hong Kong manufacturer,


  1. Nice to see you have a blog going Paul and you've done a lovely job on those Cops-n-Robbers.

    I'm still waiting for some to arrive from Taiwan, just hope they don't have too much flash.

    Keep the pictures coming.


  2. Thanks John. I wouldn´t hold your breath about the bods not coming with a truck load of flash.

  3. Nice job. You were able to bring some "glitter" to these somewhat bland figures.

  4. Great job on the minis and atmospheric presentation...Well done sir!

  5. Paul, I like these a lot, without the flash of course.
    Nice subject, and funny as always!
