This was a hare-brained concept that just kind of presented itself . . . there may have been strong margaritas and loud Jimmy Buffett music involved. 

 

This was the second in a series of whimsical models based on the Aluma-Coupe kit. 

 

What if the Town of Boydville used an Aluma-Coupe for its police force?

It took longer to mask than it did to assemble, but it was fun little slump-buster at the time.

(Forgive the photos, they're old and it was an air-pollution-alert day.)

Well, if they did, that's what they'd look like...

Love it!

 

The use of the oldschool siren/light combo works really well.

Okay, Danno, very cool model.  NOW GO TO YOUR ROOM.  I just needed to say that.

 

Seriously, you built a nice model there, buddy.  Congrats.

Tom ~ Thanks, man!   You're right . . . I ain't. 

 

 

Doc Crankus!   Thanks for the tip of the hat!  However, this car is an example of what happens when I go to my room.  :lol:

Does it have a rumble seat for the perps?

 

 

That is really... different. I have this image of Mad Max if it was done in the 1950s. ;)

Terrific idea, Mike!  Maybe I can catch Brad's trailer over-parked, so I can impound & confiscate it for public service! 

 

Thanks, man.

Aaron, it is different, isn't it? 

 

Sometimes we just gotta have some fun!

 

Thanks for checking in, my friend.

That's sure a unique way of building this kit.  It took quite an imagination to come up with that out of an Aluma-Coupe.  I would have never imagined I'd have ever seen this.  Now it makes me wander about other Boyd's kits as public service vehicles.   Chezoom would sure make a quick taxi! :)

Thanks, Ken.  Wait 'til you see its companion . . . a fire engine I call the "AlumaPumpa."
