I’m just glad I decided not to turn it into May, pole dancing, a year ago.

 

Damn. I just did.

Excellent! I'll have a few, in due course.

 

That bobby on the right is none too swift. Somebody;s nicked his bike and he hasn't even noticed. The bike showed up yesterday, etched in a Branchlines kit for a PBV.

Then it's collar 'im tight,

   In the name o' the Lawd!

'Ustle 'im, shake 'im till 'e's sick!

   Wot, 'e would, would 'e? Well,

   Then yer've got ter give 'im 'Ell,

An' it's trunch, trunch, truncheon does the trick.

 

I prefer the other sort of policeman ...

 

When a felon's not engaged on his employment ....

Routier du Nord will want them to run them in! (and show them they're the bold gendarmes)

They do look fantastic, hopefully they'll do more from earlier periods. Although, the policeman holding bike looks like he's doing a Tommy Cooper impression to me.

If Modelu want to serve the Blue Diesel modeller, perhaps they should scan members of the Flying Squad bouncing the heads of suspects off the bonnets of Ford Granadas

 

For modern image policemen, generally:

When the foeman bears his steel, they uncomfortable feel ...

 

In this case it's the Nottinghamshire constabulary practising their "Tarantaras", while the Sergeant, from Hampshire, fears there is too great a stress on the risks that on him press, yet feels that perhaps it would be wise not to carp or criticise...

 

Both 1890s.

 

Thus I should think that these Modelu figures will be pretty well suitable for the 1890s through to the 1950s/60s. I should think that fire brigade uniforms style had similar longevity. Military and civilian dress would, of course, have changed many times over such a time span.

Didn’t each constabulary have its own design of helmet?

 

Or is that too close to “finescale police” for comfort?

I would agree.  The constable below is from a now defunct wargaming range that depicts a constable in early WWII.  He is a bit tall and needed his gas mask box removing from his back but otherwise is the same as in 1890s.

I think we may be seeing new releases from Andrew Stadden soon. 

 

Mr Stadden indicated in an email exchange last year that the was going over to 3D print masters and that new Edwardian/Victorian  figures were on the way.  Until I have not seen this reflected on the website. Perhaps not too long to wait now?

Just seen this today on the A C Stadden web site

 

https://www.acstadden.co.uk/post/take-your-seats-please

 

He says he has a 1860s coach compartment that he is working to, and that it seems quite small.  I certainly think they were.  Hopefully not too long now before the figures arrive. 

 

I get the impression he has been learning 3D CAD for a couple of years, and as a military sculpter there was some famous anniversary that kept him busy last year but he is now working on figures for railways again.

Lastest on Andy Stadden's blog https://www.acstadden.co.uk/post/filling-up

 

It looks as if it will not be long, hopefully, and perhaps seats too.

 

I'm looking forward to these, although filling a train with figures is going to be quite expensive.

I have been keeping an eye on the blog, but it seems that Mr Stadden is in a protracted development phase.  There might be a succession of Good Things once these developments result in product.

He, like many of the Small Suppliers, probably has to balance sales, production, packaging, dispatching, invoicing, etc. with promoting the range, designing and developing new models, etc.

 

All we have to do is to buy and use them.
