Starting to see my collection of vintage Whelen items focus into a more specific area. Getting rid of some of the ones that I consider less desirable (to me) and acquiring a few more of the ones I like. Just thought I'd share.

I like the blue speaker/light with the four rotating sealed beams. I like that shade of blue, with just a hint of teal. :D

Update, as promised... I picked up two more Whelen 5000 Commander beacons. :twisted:





One red and one clear. (The closest ones to the blue one)

Clear one is cool.... I wonder if they made a split dome for the inside....

I think that would be the 1200 dome. If so, yes. I have a split amber/red.

I have both that model of commander and a 1200 series... I will compare them tomorrow.

You should have a red/white split 1200 series lense available. Check the Pampers box... ;)





I have an amber one, perhaps I'll throw it in there.

Here's my finding regarding the 1200 series dome, which I had also thought might fit. It does fit... kinda. It appears that the Inner optics dome of the 5000 is a 1200 style dome with a hole at the top (for heat, I would assume) and is held on by 4 screws in the base of the dome. The 1200's dome is held onto it's base by a ring.

I've never seen a Whelen 5000 with a clear outer dome and colored inner dome... until now. :twisted:

Any an updated Whelen Wall shot.

That clear one is begging for red/amber or red/clear on the inside...
