Perry Miniatures have brought out a new Austin K2 Ambulance to help get the British and Commonwealth wounded safely off of the battlefield.
The K2 Ambulance was used extensively by British and Commonwealth troops, later proving popular with the Americans as well. They could reach a top speed of 50mph and one driver actually managed to carry about 27 patients in one trip by setting up further make-shift stretchers and carrying people on the steps and even on the bonnet.
Even Queen Elizabeth, then Princess, was trained to drive one during her time in the Women’s Auxiliary Service.
Perry’s miniature is an excellently detailed sculpt by Steve Cox. The interior is shown off superbly, with even the gear stick and brakes being shown in the driver’s cabin.
The best bit though has to be the addition of the foldable steps and doors, letting you position your ambulance in the process of loading patients, or driving away to bring them to safety.
What game uses can you think of for Perry’s new ambulance?
