Do you have a link or any images to post I just looked on ebay and can only find vintage Red Shadows or Steve's repro and lego stuff?

Got mine :)
Maybe you guys already know this... (I wasn't sure) but the car in that auction is the small diecast version (not the same scale as the Red Shadows Staff Car). When I saw the word "diecast" in the auction description, I emailed the seller to confirm, and I just now received this email from her:

"The Indiana Hones Troop car is made out of metal and is approximately 9cms in length.

- carousel.shop"
ok so i already bought one of those because it says it holds up to 5 action figures ( sold seperatley)

if what your saying is right then I have been ripped off !!!

That doesn't surprise me Mat on Amazon.co.uk someone has listed RoC vehicles and figures mostly with the wrong pic so you can't really say what you will get off them.

ive just mailed them but its a bit late to get a response tonight.
I double checked the listing and its worded as though its the one Im after ..... a small diecast car couldnt fit up to 5 action figures ?????

perhaps she meant to say 9 inches instead of 9 cms ?

the diecast cars are only about 6cms ??

this is the item description which doesnt sound like a small diecast car ? however this is identical to the text on amazon so she has obviously copied and pasted it.

"Product Features

Amazing action vehicle features a machine gun that launches a projectile.
Aim it at the included barricade. A perfect shot, and the barricade breaks apart!
Fit up to five figures (each sold separately) inside, and be sure to save the packaging insert. It converts into a diorama, plus a crate for use with your vehicle!
Vehicle comes with machine gun, projectile and barricade"
