Beautifully done Peter. It  looks just like the box cover! VERY nice job. I have lived in Deeeetroy all my life (60 yrs now) and I NEVER saw a Caddy Fire Emergency Ambulance! But I guess that was Jo Han's salute to the DFD and their hero's!

Man oh man... I don't know what to say anymore. You are truly a master craftsman. 

 

The only thing I would have done differently is to paint the roof white. I think a red ambulance with white roof looks cool. But that's only personal taste. Your model is, like all your models, practically perfect! Keep 'em coming, they are all just beautiful.

I agree with Harry. That sure is one beautiful build!

I love this one!!

 

I have seen  those "Full-View" or are they "Clear- View" Corner lights

They actually have a Metal/Chrome top surface to them.

Too bad Jo-Han did not engrave a separation line there for us to Foil it!!

 

I have a couple parts lots to restore!!

 

Wish I could find the one I did a High-top conversion on!!

Another great one Peter.  I really like the clean construction and application of the foil on the rear windows.  The stretcher looks fantastic too.  Excellent work.

 

Oh, the antenna! Nice!

Peter,

Awesome job!  It looks like a box art model!  I really like the addition of the frosted stripes on the windows.  They add a nice touch.  I have a few in my stash, and one that I started about 30 years ago.  It is painted light blue, to match my squad's unique color scheme which their ambulances have worn since the 1950's.  One of these days I'll finally finish it... :D

 

 

David

Thanks Charlie and David.

Just after I'd finished painting this one (yes, I was going for the box illustration) I saw a photo of a light blue one and wished I'd done it like that. Maybe it was one from your squad David.
