Any one mind if I leap aboard?

I just started a Lindbergh Dodge Charger. It'll be a CHP "recruitement" car with fancy markings from Bill Bozo.

Janne, thgat's looking good. I cannot remember how many of those I drove over the years. It was my all time fave police car in 31 years.

Nick did you see my comments on your CV in the other thread?

Yes I did, I have a question, and have sent you a PM

i may jump in here if its a no time line cbp! B)
i plan "actually partially started" custom pumper truck
using a pumper body from the alf pumper kit, if i can get the right parts!
i will also use the louisville shorthauler chassies!
the wheels will also come from the pumper kit
the body is a resin griffen international harvestor 8100 series conversion kit (long oop from sts model trucks)
and im hoping to get the parts needed such as mirrors and glass and etc from a 4300 amt kit!
now i have to wait for the next time my stepmother comes up to bring me the resin conversion!
i actually got some progress so far if i can find the pics in my photobucket! :blink:

I'm all for more fire trucks!

I have never built one, but love seeing the finished product.

Hey Janne, I forgot to ask, what color blue did you finally use for the NYPD Caprice? It looks right from what I can see.

Sean: What should i call your build, so i may "sign you in" ?

Wayne: That blue is Humbrol gloss 14 called french blue. I like way it looks becouse it acts same way than 1:1 NYPD color does, so it looks light blue in sun and darker in room light and so on.

Wheelman: Very cool to have some Lambos too, thats what i wished on here differend subjects from differend guys.

Today i have done little things for Caprice like some detail painting. I hope i have something to show later today B)

Janne, that's a perfect color.

Here's where I'm at as of today. This is Duplicolor gray primer washed with Floquil Grimy Black. I dry brushed MM Neutral Gray for the highlights.

I mocked up the interior so now on to the chassis.

Here's an old stalled build that I plan to finish thanks to this CBP.
This was a car I drove back in the day.

I have a bunch of jobs that have worked their way to the front of my to-do list, so I'll join in. (Yeah, it's an ambitious list, but, hey, I have all the rest of the year, right?) I'm absolutely committed to getting these done!!
'57 Chevy - Phoenix PD
'57 Chevy - Phoenix FD
'57 Chrysler convt - Turello's ride
'59 Ford sedan - Crime Story squad
'60 Ford sedan - Chicago PD patrol
'60 Studebaker Lark - Phoenix PD
'75 Cutlass - S/O unmarked (my old ride)
'80 Dodge Diplomat - S/O marked (another old ride)
'80 Dodge Diplomat - S/O detective (yet another old ride)
'92 Caprice BP sedan (worse for wear)
'08 Charger - Maricopa S/O
'05 American LaFrance Fire Engine
'11 Lonestar Fire Engine

And, oh, yeah. There's another project I'm already 1/2 done with ... for the semi-tractor/trailer CBP ... but it would be a cross-over here, so I'll drop a pic or two later. It's a Pete 359 Conventional with Low Boy dropdeck trailer and a special load.

Now, don't bother me, I've got to get to work! LOL. ;)

:lol:

Janne, here's some inspiration for your Caprice.

This is a '93 that I drove when I first made sergeant. I put a modified Impala SS body,onto the interior/chassis from a Revell Fire Chief/Taxi.

This was the first police car I ever had with power windows and GASP! carpet. :D

They look great. I like how Caprice looks. I dont prefer either diecasts but sometimes its only game in town. It would be great if Revell or some other good model company could do full detail model of that kind Crown Vic. I like how they look... Thanks for sharing :D

Janne - I have a kinda interesting model in the works that sort of fits, since the base vehicle for the actual vehicles that were produced in limited numbers started life as used Cadillac ambulances and hearses. A friend of mine once owned a camper based on a 1961 Caddy ambulance, and I'm partway through my own take on it, using the Jo-Han '66 Cadillac Ambulance kit as a base. If you tink it's close enough to your idea for this CBP, count me in.

(I already have 4 CBP models inthe works, inc luding one for my own CBP: "The Cars of Rock 'n' Roll & Country Music". Why not think about joining in mine if you're interested and have the time??? ;) )
