Hi All,
For reasons that I can't really explain, I rather enjoy collecting & using slot police, marshal, safety and other emergency services cars, and I thought it might be nice to share some photos.
I'd love to see what interesting stuff everyone else has too, so please post pics.

I'll start, rather unimaginatively, with the good old Scalextric Rover 3500 Police cars:

Version 1:

Version 2:

Version 3:

Looks good Steve... Any possibility of sticking a slot chassis under it?

I'm surprised we get so many police cars, but so few Ambulances. I narrowly missed picking up a Bumslot ambulance a few months ago for £15...
It got relisted and went for £40-50. Bummerslot more like!

hi richard, the kit comes with a resin chassis so i think you could quite easily get a slot it motor pod or similar cut out a hole in the chassis and pop it in, cheers steve

Car 54 where are you ? But Toody & Muldoon didn't drive that kind of car. Anyone having watched TV in the first half of the sixties ?
Did Carrera deliberatly chose that number ?

A static Land Rover - a Heller kit like the Trafic van above. Bumslot motorised a few of these also. I have fitted LEDs to add to the track side ambience.

Hi there all, great thread..

Here is a GMC "tow" truck, that I converted to a slotcar a while back.
It started out as a motorised toy, very accurate to 1:32 scale and has a plastic body (unfortunately the only one I have as yet found)
After detailing the truck further, I mounted it onto a Ninco "Pro Truck" Chassis, so it goes well, great fun to drive.

I have some other photos of other unusual converted and RTR emergency vehicles, that I will post later today.

All the best.. Martin De'Ath

Wow chaps, some really nice stuff there.

Col, It was an Ambulance, but similar to that. A Renault I think.

Cheers,
Richard

Wow, Very nice Martin... every time I see a photo of that Plymouth my heart sinks. One day I'll have one!

I took the easy route with the Hummer:
