For some unknown reason, many Europeans are smitten with the NYPD. There are more than a few replica NYPD cars over the pond (ranging from quite accurate to comically inaccurate) some available for rental.

So it is no surprise to find on flickr a Belgian named Marc who makes incredibly accurate HO scale models of NYPD and FDNY vehicles and photographs them on a miniature version of New York City streets complete with a precinct house and fire house. It is even more amazing that he has never even been to the city.

The models, which are almost all custom made or modified, aren’t for sale and represent both departments from the present day back to the mid 1970s. They are used in recreations of police and fire scenes that are incredibly detailed.
