Since Minairons will not be doing 28mm cycles, consider RAFM. They make police cycles, more like 25mm, but fit with 28mm well enough.


There are also other companies that make nice motorcycles. With an easy head swap you can add police style peak caps. Dog Tag Miniatures Italian cycles and Company B Japanese. Woodbine Miniatures make the necessary heads.

See here how I converted the police to military.

20mm SCW Dispatch Riders

I'm happy to share with you our upcoming set of 1:72 scale SCW figures, consisting of two Republican dispatch riders along with their Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Unlike their 1:100 scale counterpart shown below (where bike, rider and stand were cast in a single piece, with only handlebar and arms apart), this new 1:72 scale version has separate motorcycles, figures, handlebars and stands (so allowing multiple customization chances).

15mm version

As you can see, the first figure of this new set shows a man leaning on his right foot, as if he was talking with someone else, or watching at something perhaps.

Halted Rider II

The other one represents a rider seated on his bike – which is obviously supposed to be running.

Apologies for the photos' poor quality – I'm anything but good at taking pictures.

In the next few days, we're going to take them to the foundry for production.

Thanks for Reading!
