I picked up some of these for $1 USD each at Big Lots (US discount chain).

These aren't cars, they're boats! No wheels. Comes with a plastic water base that fits in place.

Windows vary from 1mm to 3mm in height. Looks like it works for 3mm to 6mm scale. No visible doors/entrypoints.

There's a small orange helipad at the rear – if that's really a helipad, that knocks the scale down quite a bit. Or stick a turret back there!

Do you think it would work for 15mm (sans helipad)? It looks like it could be pretty scaleless (smaller windows due to armor or to show less light).

Seen these, but have one question – Does the water base come off easily?

Same here; I've seen them on the shelves, but the "water" gives me pause. If it comes off and the hull is intact, I'll probably pick up one or two.

i see they do a simple "boghammer" style boat called the Tinforcer in police livery, that scales well for 6mm figures; Not water under it, so a bit more useful.
