The Bus below, is a 1/50th AEC Regal, the Armoured car is a Morris CS9 (Chieftain Models), and the Motorcycle is from Great War Miniatures, with a Lewis Gun strapped to the handlebars. The latter is the first of my SBS - Special Bike Squadron, an ill-thought out, slightly impractical unit, which is IMHO in keeping with the character of almost Dad's Army approach of hastily-formed bodies of troops, in the dark days of 1938...
The emblem, on the side of the vehicles, is the White Rose of the Yorkist Front (my fictional force).
Future additions will include more buses, tanks, and hopefully some cycle troops....

First up, is General Sir Stanley Birch (Ret), a fictional hero from the First World War, that has assumed command of the forces defending York. The miniature was sculpted by Paul Hicks, for a charity auction (I believe that it actually depicts a Captain of the Gloucesters), but with a different paint job, was ideal IMHO, for the purpose I had in mind.
