I test-built a security Zoom the other day and it was kind of a scary build in a couple of spots, so I had to tweak things a little bit. The one change that’s actually visible is the light bar’s increased height. I was a little bummed to lose the low-profile look, but the folds were too closely spaced on the original lightbar. I doubled the lightbar’s height to fix that.
Also, bonus content!
I did a Customs scheme (to make life a little more interesting for smugglers/adventurers) and a follow-me car scheme:
That second scheme was inspired by photos of real-life follow-me cars.
I’m also toying with throwing in a plain white general purpose scheme for administrative use. The way I figure it, if the facility vehicles are sourced by contract and in fleet quantities, then they’d likely simply buy a bunch of white Zooms and then slap on the appropriate decal kits, and the admin cars would just be leftover, unadorned white Zooms that have only had their bumper codes applied.
UPDATE: Changed up the customs scheme. Tomas mentioned the Dutch customs vehicles used the same basic paint patterning as their police cars, but in a different color, so I hit up Google for images of the Douane vehicles he was talking about, and modified the oblique Battenburg of the security car to resemble it.
Here it is:
It’s basically the same retroreflective white side decaling as the standard security scheme, with green and golden-yellow oblique checks instead of blue, and the text is now green bordered with golden yellow instead of blue bordered with white. I like it, and I think it ties in better with the rest of the vehicles like this.
