    Hi Jim,
    I must be going blind I didn't notice the second picture. On the first Pic I thought the C looked like a 6 making it a 4 fig number.
    The numbers should be from left to right C 151 151 C Like a pair of collar dogs in the army.

    If you zoom in on the Police officer receiving the Colour you can see the numbers, although dated 1959 the tunic did not change.
    Just one other point, the whistle chaine would be brass.

    I think Airfix did a beefeater but it was big 1/12 maybe? There must be others surely.

    Hi Guys ,

    Thanks for the comments .......a really great job on this .....like the chain on the whistle , you would never know the original head source ...

    And well...that helmet ....


    Now I reckon it's a very very dark black blue for the uniform with that flash of colour of the red and white armband ...brass buttons, numbers , the helmets going to have "POLICE" on it ....looking forward to this

    Treat yourself to changing the underpants before Friday James..lol

    That looks fantastic, great work Jim.
    Incidentally when I was about 14 I had one of the tin hats with Police painted on the front. The liner was missing but other than that it wasn't in bad condition.
    I found it in a disused quarry in the village which was used as a dump for all kinds of interesting stuff for a 14 year old before the invention of smart phones etc.

    This is absolutely fantastic!
