Nice review. Kit even includes a body camera, which is a nice modern touch. I like how professional the figure looks. Reminds me very much of an officer I spoke to in London.

Nicely done, and while she is cute the MP5 in real life should dissuade those inclined towards familiarity. Didn't slow me down on one occasion though...nice review Darren!

It's possible that Microscale decals have a checkerboard B/W pattern that might fit the hat headband:

I think the inclusion of a Taser is great, too. There is some real detail there.

Does anyone make a 1:16 MP7? Just in case you want to update the armament.

I wonder if the Metropolitan Police Service issues MP-7s.

Hey Jason,

I canít find any information on that - only the Ministry of Defence Police using them. Got a link/source/reference?

Cheers.

Hi Greg,

I saw the Met along with the MOD Police listed as MP7 users on the MP7 Wikipedia page. I haven't been able to find any images yet showing officers armed . The Garda in Ireland is also using the MP7. On a side note, across the pond, LAPD are issuing the MP7 to their K9 handlers and motorcycle officers.
