Husky Public Officers 1:64th Scale

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Husky Public Officers 1574 1:64th Scale by Chris*4, on Flickr

Husky were one of the Mettoy brands available in the 1960's producing small scale vehicles similar to the Matchbox range. The brand were exclusively sold in FW Woolworths. Part of the Husky range were ready painted 1:64th scale figures.

This set, made in 1969, featured a variety of British public service officers from the late 1960's and they are from left to right:

1. Police Dog Handler with Alsatian (the police dog is nicely modelled),
2. Children's crossing supervisor - affectionally known in England as a 'lolly pop' man,
3. Milkman (or could be used as a deck chair attendant but I am not aware that Husky or indeed anyone else made 1:64th scale deck chairs in 1969!) BTW Husky never made a milk float but Matchbox did,
4. WPC (lady police officer),
5. Policeman controlling traffic known here in Britain as 'point duty'
6. Traffic warden. This was a relatively new role in 1969 so Mettoy, Husky's owners, were up with the times. I don't know if any one else made a traffic warden miniature in any scale.

For me they bring back happy memories of how things were back in time. Uniforms have been modified but the major change is that police officers are none gender specific. If you are lucky to have a milkperson it is unlikely they will be wearing a uniform! Traffic Wardens, once part of the local Police Service, have been replaced by parking officials employed by local authorities or private companies.

Nice models. I like the fact that these figurines show different human body constitution- there are both thin and fat men, like in real life.

This is also what I like about this set Cyhyraeth. It follows the human race in miniature. Thank you for your comments. Very Happy

I did see these threads you have highlighted here. However, after consideration I would prefer this thread to be a separate entry. The SUY is mainly about farmers and zoo keepers.

Of course this thread is here for anyone else you would like to join in and post images of human figures.

Spot-On 1:42nd scale Police Officer standing outside a scratch built Shell garage. Garage made by Richard Brady. Police figure was made in the late 1960's.

Spot-On Policeman by Chris*4, on Flickr

Spot-On was a Tri-ang brand with a factory in Northern Ireland. The best known toys from this location were the Spot-On range of 1:42nd scale die-cast vehicles. To accompany these Spot-On issued a range of figures and buildings. The ranged ceased production in 1967.

Corgi Catalogue 1963 Filling Station by Chris*4, on Flickr

Corgi Toys 1963 catalogue page 13 showing Corgi Kits 608 Service Station, 609 Forecourt Accessories and 1505 Garage attendants.

I have the figure set and will post them here soon.

Corgi Catalogue 1965 kits by Chris*4, on Flickr

Corgi Toys 1965 catalogue page 17.

On the left showing built Corgi Kits 608 Service Station, 609 Forecourt Accessories and 1505 Garage attendants. Corgi Toys with this image were giving ideas on how to pose your figures when you have built the kits. I recently built the petrol pump island but it wasn’t easy!

On the right 602 and 610 various telephone boxes. 610 included the “Tardis” but it was a Police phone box before it became Dr Who’s personal transporter! Amazingly they were still in use in the early 1980’s - as phone boxes!  but they have all been withdrawn and found their way into gardens and museums.

Corgi Toys 1505 Garage Attendants by Chris*4, on Flickr

As promised here is the photograph of the set illustrated above as a catalogue image.

This group of figures was one of five sets introduced at the end of 1962. Designed to enhance play with Corgi Toys cars and kits. They were made in Hong Kong but the sculpting was done in-house at Corgi Toys in the UK. All sets were withdrawn at the end of 1969 and over 100,000 sets of 1505 were made.

The group illustrated here are later production because they are slightly larger than the original issues.

I don’t have any of my built kits from my childhood either Dave. I guess they were easily damaged so were thrown out.

Britains Native Guide points to something we must all be wary of. He was only available with the LWB safari Land-Rover.
