Please do some in 28mm as these would be ideal for US cops in Prohibition era gangster games. Of course, the riders would have to be suitably attired.

I would second that 28mm but for the SCW.

it would be interesting to know how this little gem will be sold…maybe singly or blisters of 2/3 models (mu scale is 1:72) with a generic rider in overall (also if i prefer the blue uniform with boots) and cap as to reproduce the very iconic Guardias de Asaltos..or with the already available auto-metralladora and that very big car/carrier used only by this well equipped police force ..we can reproduce the Guardias assassination squads that operated from the beginning and before SCW in Madrid

Is it bad that technically I could have uses for these at all three scales?

It should be easy to up scale to 28 with 3-D printing. I would take some.

Hi, just a few thoughts following your comments:

As for 1:72, my starting forecast is to use the bike casting for not less than two different sets: a blister of 2 models or so, as @ITALWARS suggests, and an additional model (with a pilot in different gear) in a boxed set.

Regarding 1:100, I will most probably choose a blister format only, with contents and pricing as equivalent as possible to those of Peter Pig, for instance.

And about 1:56… well, I admit to not have forecast it at a start. However, the many requests received in this direction will most probably make me change my mind at regard, and re-scale the model to that size.

i understand amortize costs ad have a minimum revenu for a very particular model should not be easy..probably also blisters of 3 would be OK for us wargamer…as the moto are equipped with rifle in scabbard it could be conceivable also to envisage a full motorised Guardias, Carabineros or cavalry reconaissance unit..with troopers in mixed car/lorry and moto transport or moto only…so in Rapid Fire therms from 4 to 8 moto riders castings…

i hope that..when those models would be ready..i could still pay in €….but if i'll no more be able to receive Minairons goods trough Correos de Espana..i'll be equally more than happy for that …. :-))

Given that steel molds for plastic injection have a high start up cost, but low production cost per figure it seems to me this would be a perfect project for a Kickstarter.

Why have they done a Harley and not an Indian ?? Do they not realise the Harley will just fall to pieces within 2 years
