the new 5118 custom bike - with its 2 cylinder boxer engine can only be inspired by bmw.
as there aren't "real" bmw looking so agressive they could be inspired by bmw's custom concept designs - http://www.bmwxplor.com/bcc

The vertical blue section behind the cab is a recent introduction to German fire brigade livery which PM picked up on.

Like the new silver/white police livery I suppose :)


Interesting fact for those that don't know:

Police vehicles (at least in the UK) are painted in popular colours such as white or silver so they are easy to sell on again once the transfers/equipment has all been removed.

This is why I started liking fire engines and paramedics:




I loved the show when I was a kid in the US! Does anyone remember "Emergency!" 8-)?

Yes, my dad liked the show when he was a kid and I've watched it with him. Last Christmas, I made him a custom Playmobil Johnny Gage:

The box
 

The figure inside


He really liked it  :). It's nice to know another fan!
