Mark Stetson says: "The weird scale that we had made a real problem with populating the streets. Turned out to be 1/18th scale. You don't find any accurate model kits in that scale. So I scoured Toys R Us and found this police car that looked like a New York police car, right vintage, right size it turned out so I called all uh Toys R Us stores in Southern California and bought all they had. We had something like a hundred of these police cars. We chopped them up - turned them into fire trucks and taxi's and police cars and everything else."
