    Well, the good news about this pandemic is that I've had more time to work on some custom models. And after ordering a few cars from my semi-local dealer, I've gone through half of them already (which means another order is on the horizon ). My current pace is about one a day, but the other day I finished two - so maybe that's efficiency?

    Ever since I saw this vehicle in real life I knew that I wanted to replicate it in small scale. Durangos as an emergency vehicle aren't terribly common in Canada (at least on the west coast), but it's a treat when your local ambulance service employs them. Also there's something about making something that you see on the street.

    For reference, BCAS = British Columbia Ambulance Service.
    The real vehicle (my own photo):

    Two units were made - one supervisor (with the push bar), and a paramedic specialist unit. Paramedic specialists in British Columbia are "Advanced Care and Critical Care paramedics who provide on-scene technical support for high-risk situations, mass and complex patient events as well as telephone support to paramedics and patients." (http://www.bcehs.ca/about/who-we-are...levels-of-care)

    While all of BCAS Durangos don't feature a push bar, I took a bit of a creative liberty and because they just make a car that much more menacing.

    Several Greenlight models were the basis, with the paramedic specialist unit being an ex-Utah Highway Patrol model and the Supervisor formerly sporting an Veterans Affairs Police livery. Decals, as always, were supplied by Bilbozo Decals.

    Enjoy the photos:

          They are meant to be mobile and rapid response units that assist the standard emergency paramedics in urban areas.
