I like the car. Is it a miniature range or a die cast. I've been looking for some suitably scaled for my Gangster games.
Good to see you managed to get your final team in Freelancer. Love the monster and the paint job on its muscles and tongue!

The latter, namely Matchbox Model of Yesteryear Y-16 Mercedes SS 1928. Apparently they've produced it in different colours and variants (roof open or closed) since 1972. Some of them fetch "collectible" prices. Mine had 1984 printed on the box and I paid less than 5 for it.

The nominal scale is 1/45 but I haven't checked whether that's true. In any case, my collection has so varied stuff that I've given up all attempts of proper scale consistency.

I think I compiled a list of somewhat usable 20s-30s MoY cars once...

I wasn't aware there were that many female Judge miniatures. Are some conversions?
a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice.

Is the investigator in the middle meant to represent Phryne Fisher?

A few arm swaps and reposing conversions, but they are 5 of at least 8 female Judge minis currently available.

A single-piece resin casting from Thomarillion.

The sculpt? Could be, given the Australian connection. The paintjob? At least not intentionally, but I won't object any coincidental resemblance.

That reminds me to post another pulpish, Australian thing at some point...
