OK, That helps. Sorry, I did not even look to see where you were from.
I can understand the Increased cost of kits, thus Parts kits are FEW!
Here are the 2 pic's of the one I am Back-dating into the Original movie car.
I made mounts just like for the Front Lightbar for the rear one.
I can take the bar off and TRY to take a close up pic of them if you want, But
Just file scrap styrene to shape.I did drill for 2 pins the fit into the bottom of the light bar
for a positive mount.
The Box on the carrier with the Red rotator light is Not there in the First movie.
I cut it off and filled the opening with sheet styrene.
Also Not the large canister on the right side is Pale yellow or Cream Not red,.
I used Evergreen 3/32 inch (2.4 mm) tube for the Old style Microwave Antenna
The pedestal is made of telescoping sizes of Tube., the box/block that
the antenna rods mount to, and is at the top of the shaft.pedestal is filed from
scrap or layered strip/sheet
I removed the Large Strobe light base from the carrier and remounted it to the front center.
A "MARS" Gyro-Light Goes to the left and the Siren to the right. But, You will most likely have to Make those!!
I made Both out of Jo-Han Police Fury LAPD version Siren bodies. (The Polar Lights kit has a copy of this siren!!)
On the Light, I cut the Vents Off, rounded the cut area to look like a factory edge, inserted a smaller head light bezel,
and then added the Lens.
The Siren I had to make the Face for. I used different sizes of Evergreen tube to get the correct diameter
then drew a copy of the face on paper. I scaled it to fit, then used that to cut the slots in the face.
BMF was used to get the Chrome look.
I can look for a copy of the drawing of that Siren face. Or more likely find pic's on the net easier!
The Original AM Radio antenna is still on the right front fender in the first movie,
and there are 2 large Whip antennas. one on the left rear.
I made the Ladder on the right rear from a 1/32 scale Monogram Mack CF pumper.
I think I used the narrower piece of the ground ladder.
I added .02 inch Strip to the side rails, and Carefully drilled for 4 pins
to mount it to the side of the car.
The Spotlight mounts though the Fender Not the windshield frame.
And there should be a Side mirror on the door even with the mirror
on the spotlight!!
I do not have the silver/aluminum pipe/tubing running up the right side just
behind/almost under the ladder mounted, but I used Aluminum Tube & rod for it.
The "Flex" hoses Are still flat blue in the first movie, but the mounts/holders are white, not yellow.
Just thought of this. Those hoses will need to be lengthened if possible.
They need to at least appear to go under the carrier. Also the carrier needs to be lowered slightly.
I keep remembering things as I look at the pic's of her!!
The center of the 'Jetpod" tail light it the Backup light, so should be White not red.
Only the outer secion is red. I thought those were only reflectors, but do see them
light up as the hit the brakes. The Tail light bullets are OK, but do not have the Chrome trim
striped around them. (Guess they were too small for AMT to worry about!)
If I think of anything else, I will let you know.
OK last time for now I hope......
I replaces the shaft of the Whip antenna's with Evergreen .035 inch rod for better appearance.
Hope this helps.
