I've been looking around for suitable 70s-80s civilian vehicles for Ulster, a trip to my local model railway shop brought Oxford Diecasts to light. These are 1/76 scale painted and assembled diecast vehicles for use on OO gauge model railways. Very nicely done £3-£4 a shot and you could use them straight away, of course I didn't do this cause I like to tamper! On a serious note the vehicles are very, very nice but I wanted mine dirty and dull so here's how I did it. Oh by the way I managed to restrain myself from altering the number plates to NI ones.

A rather natty looking blue Ford Cortina. This is untouched straight out of the box!
