Well , here she is. A VERY basic build. Almost box stock, I did add some cabinet's to the interior, and changed up the wheels and tires adding some from the parts box, and of course the emergency lights. Thanks for looking, Dave.

I don't think they'd have the superwide tires sticking out beyond the wheelwells like that on a real one... but otherwise the model looks good. I like the thin gold stripe separating the red and white areas.

I agree with Harry on the wheels/tires, but GREAT attention detail and the gold striping looks authentic.  That windshield and glass is crazy clean- did you dip it in Future?  Thanks for posting.

No, I just wiped it off with an old T-shirt. I probably blew dust off it for 20 minutes before I took the pic.

Thanks Danno, but it's not a Dave Panek light bar. It comes out of the  YODEL NYPD model. For me I think its a little to large for 1/24, so I sanded the bottom off of the lens's, about an 1/8 inch, then made the internals myself.

Okay!   Sorry about the mis-attribution.  You're right ~ it is just a hair large, but you made it look good.  Did you do the reflectors yourself?  They look great!
