Ok so i did this the day my school had a tragic event not on porpose but just because i had a cop car that i though was already close to my hometowns current cop cars scheme. I blacked out the wheels because huge chrome wheels seemed to flashy for cops. added a gold stripe and police logo and heres what came out. oh yah and the picture of the car was taken on top of my 1992 buick riviera(just a useless note)

Almost looks like a cop car from the old " Highway Patrol " TV show.

Late 50's early 60's Cops an Robbers show. Brodrick Crawford was the star. He's gone now too. Funny, I thought of "Highway Patrol" right away too! Nice model, it brings back some nice memories! :D ;)

You can watch full episodes on youtube if interested. Kind of corny by today standards but not bad.

Nice conversion Jake.

The CHP car was done in 1/26 scale.

Mira made a black & white 1/18 several years ago but I don't remember if it was an actual CHP car.

Jake, Look for a pin stripe tape made by Line-O-Lot, available in better hobby stores and on line at http://www.lineotape.com/products.asp
