Mainland Support Operations - Undercover

One of the duties of my command is interdiction of offshore smuggling from Mexico. Working in conjunction with our base is an undercover operation infiltrating the local mainland smuggling rings. Word from our undercover officers goes straight to my command ops and I send out interdiction flights or waterborne search and seizure missions as needed. For long range observation we send out our Panther jet, to be followed by closer ranged, faster V-25 Kestral aircraft and finally seaborne interception by Coast Guard, Navy or our own patrol craft.

Our undercover operations have three more officers, two female and a total of two males. At their disposal are three civilian vehicles, a Porsche Boxster, A two seat convertible and a mini-van. Equipment varies as the missions require.

Another Undercover car. This one is really neat, it has working doors (and handles), has an infared remote with engine starting, security alarm, horn, forward/reverse and a top that raises and lowers remotely. I thought the security alarm was only for making beeping noises, but I found out very late at night once that it really works. I accidently set the alarm off when I picked up the car and spent about five minutes panicking while I tried to figure out how to turn it off!

OPERATION POOL RAIDER - AN UNDERCOVER PHOTO STORY

Word had come down that something was going on at John Kozin's Command. Kozin was away at the Kansas City Convention and my undercover unit had word from a local gang there was a plan to hit his motor pool. We wanted to get to the head guy, Mr. Big and discover just who was behind this operation. Cars had been funneled thru Los Angeles at an alarming rate. However, at this time the only unit I had available was my undercover unit so two of my operatives with two more as back up teamed up with a known local terrorist for the planned raid. At the predetermined time, our undercover van with the terrorist on board pulled up outside of Kozin's main gate and the terrorist sighted in his crossbow for a silent take out on the lone guard.

The crossbow bolt sliced thru the night and found it's mark. The guard went down in an instant. With the gates open and the way clear, the terrorist wanted to contact Mr. Big to see which vehicles he wanted. Apparently Mr. Big had a standing order for as many vehicles he could get and John Kozin's Motor Pool was one of the largest concentration of vehicles in the United States. As he opened his laptop and loaded the connection, another car drove up to the gates.

Both teams sighted in on the suspect and while he logged into communications with Mr. Big, the call went out, "FREEZE, do NOT touch the laptop and back up away from the vehicle"! In the meantime, the "dead" guard miraculously stood up with the crossbow bolt obscenely sticking out of his shirt.

The guard commanded the terrorist, "Drop ALL your Weapons, NOW"! The terrorist, seeing he was completely caught off guard, did as he was told.

"I SAID ALL your WEAPONS... NOW!", called out the guard. Apparently he wasn't satisfied as the terrorist had a reputation for being very well armed. Out came a bewildering array of weapons. The team leader thought to himself, "Man, I wish my pants packed that kind of firepower"!

The guard showed the girls the fake arrow he had in his shirt and the vest with the steel plates just in case the crossbow bolt found it's mark. Fortunately, the terrorist shot true, he had a terrible reputation for accuracy and his crossbow bolt was found lodged in the tire of one of the nearby vehicles.

In the meantime, the team leader rushed to the laptop to log on and discover the identity of Mr. Big. They had been tracking this guy for years without success and the anticipation was getting the better of them.

A startled gasp escaped from the team leader as he shouted out for the rest of the team to come and see who Mr. Big was.

Suddenly, in an instant, it all made sense. This is how Mr. Big was able to amass such a huge collection of vehicles. As the team gathered around, a strangely familiar voice came floating over the laptop speakers...

"CAN YOU HEAR ME"??? "I said to STAY AWAY from that Motor Pool"! "I repeat, STAY AWAY from that Motor Pool"!

John Kozin... your secret is out!

Our agent shows off the "tools of his trade". Both my female agents carry a handbag with a compact, cell phone and other accessories inside.

I handmade all my undercover shoulder rigs. This figure has two shoulder rigs on, one is for his .45 automatic and an ammo clip pouch and the other rig holds a Mac Ingram machine pistol. These rigs are fairly simple to make and only reguire a minimum of sewing skills.

Zman's gloved hands

With a regular Barbie, you can reshape her hands
and arms by dunking them in boiling water, twisting
and bending to desired position and then dunking it in
ice water to set it. (Thanks to Sharlene Franks for this tip)

The CD player on my female undercover officer was a Barbie accessory that had a completely molded hard plastic wire from the headset to the CD player. I cut this off and left enough of a "nub" on the CD player and headset to slide on pliable insulation I stripped off of some electrical wire. To get the "Y" split in the wire, I saved the molded one and cut down the molded wire to "nubs" and again slid on the ends of the insulation. End result was a completely pliable headset wire.
