I am a recently retired Police Sergeant from Arkansas and have been modeling for more years than I can remember. I started doing models when I was 16 and am an older generation now. I enjoyed building Nascar and then switched over to 1/24th and 1/18th diecast police cars with real working lights and a highly detailed inside. I do Resin Casting professionally and have done it for approx. 15 years. I still enjoy Nascar, but really enjoy the police diecast builds. I build and repair computers part time also.

 

* The Canyon Co. Charger Interior was heavily modified. Prisoner back seat was hand made out of sheet plastic. Cage partition was hand made then resin cast. *Real working sliding partition glass. Cable type prisoner seat belts. Console, radios, mics, switch boxes, siren, were hand made and resin cast. Ignition & key along with a dash mounted shift lever added. A trunk mounted GPS hand made then resin cast. * Interior dome light really works. Front interior was painted two-tone Charger Gray. Real working LED light bar and rear deck traffic advisor light bar. Working Strobe Headlight/Taillights. LPR (License Plate Reader) on trunk was added later. Graphics were designed by me.

 

Sherwood PD Charger was also done by me, as were Graphics and design.

A detailed interior, similar to the Canyon Co. Charger was added.
