Nice tribute for your Dad Dave and as always, a clean detailed build! I have seen others you built for him, have you replicated all of his patrol cars or just certain ones?


Thanks for sharing and keep them coming!

I've built 'most' of them. There were a few different 'brands' of cars he drove within the same department, that would be a long list to build, and since none of them are kitted, I just went with the most common. One I'd really like to do is a 74/75 Grand Torino, but I've never seen a four door, and I don't think I'd be able to convert a two door.


Thank you for all the nice compliments.

Nice and clean build. I am on my third Ford from that body style (the one I am pictured with on my avitar) and have loved them all. I have two Missing Link LTDs, one is being made into a '76 brougham I had while in tech school around 1998 and the other when I have the skills to make it into a Country Squire like mine.

Love it Dave. Great job and a thoughtful gift. The body looks great on that. That'll definitely get added to my cache of future police car projects.

I really like the build. The real cars were very nice on the highway. I don't remember the tail lights being like that. I had thought the red lens encircled the middle part which was black. Was this special for Police versions?
