I’ve been working on an initial layout of parts and characters for the model of John Kent, the first black police officer in the UK. The plan is that he struggles back and forth with a thief and every so often blows on his whistle to summon help.
Dawn’s research has uncovered some awkward facts. Namely, in the time of John Kent the police didn’t use whistles they used rattles! No problem, here’s a new design featuring a rattle driven via a bevel gear and spring steel wire. I’m sure the whistle will come in for another model in the future.
