"Land Rover 109"" Canvas Cover - Royal Ulster Constabulary. 1:76 Scale Diecast Model with clear presentation box and removable plastic plinth. Part of the Oxford Diecast Railway Scale range.
The Royal Ulster Constabulary was the name of the police force in Northern Ireland from 1922 to 2001. At its peak the force had around 8,500 officers with a further 4,500 who ere members of the RUC Reserve. The RUC had long used armoured vehicles to provide protection to its officers. The first to be based on the Land Rover appeared in 1957, on a Series 1 109"" wheelbase pick-up body (registration WZ 599, fleet number 233). This incorporated only a basic level of protection, designed to repel bricks and bottles in a public order situation. Our model is based on this first version and carries the authentic registration.
