The Bridgestone Collection was started in 1976 to form an eclectic cross-section of transportation miniatures from around the world. Today, it includes over 35,000 items dating from the 1950's to those that can be found in current production. In 1994, TBC Custom Replicas was formed to provide law enforcement agency, EMS provider, and fire department clients with customized replicas of their vehicles for their personnel. Replicas were custom created to client specifications and in many cases scale graphics packages were developed utilizing the reflective and non-reflective materials found on the prototype vehicles. Replicas were later produced for other entities that utilized fleet vehicles. TBC-Custom Replicas have been created in scales ranging from 1:12th to 1:87th. Subjects have included aircraft and water-craft, as well as, motor and rail vehicles.
