    That looks really good Chuck.  You did a nice job trying to get that dome to look like the Unity.

    This, along with all of your builds, needs to be in a special category...Museum Ready Replicas.  But you know that's how I feel about your work.
    Stunning, Charlie.  As always.

    Looking good on both cruisers...
    Chuck, just a suggestion for you and anyone else who likes the cruisers:  I see you're using the JoHan Fury beacon light on your 57.  The light that comes with that kit is the "high skirt" version of the Federal Signal beacon that NYPD used for many years.  These were made special for NYPD so the light would clear the siren that they had on the roof in front of it.  The standard Federal Signal beacon base should be a scale 5 inches, not the real high one.  So to be truly accurate when not doing NYPD, the base needs to be trimmed down a bit.

    66 Chevy Biscayne - Chicago PD
    66 Chevy Biscayne, Chicago PD...this is a collaboration of sorts. The body was done by a friend of mine, Dave Neuman of the Chicago area. He actually converted the Revell 65 Impala convertible body into a 66 Biscayne 4 door...no resin here. He did this a few years ago, before Revell introduced the 66 Impala kit. I was lucky enough to obtain this from him a few months back with the body all done, but nothing else completed. I sourced a 66 Biscayne interior from Model Car World and converted it to a 4 door, then built the chassis. I used Replica & Miniatures of MD resin 6 cylinder engine, as per the real CPD squads. Paint is Ace Hardware safety blue enamel, interior was done with Dupli-color interior paint.  Since I'm getting close to filling my photo limit, I'll post a few here, along with the link to my build up and more under glass images, including some paired with my 67 Biscayne wagon that I built years ago.

    Rich, he's sometimes very slow with his emails.  I did chat with him via email about 2 weeks ago. Keep trying,

    Impeccable workmanship...but that's the definition of all of your work.  It says so in the dictionary right next to your name.

    Jegs has a pretty good list on their website...its broken down by manufacturers colors...GM, Ford, etc.  Scroll down the page to see all, and there's actually 4 pages...

    I've got the same one in about the same condition, waiting for my Modelhaus parts too.  I like what you've done here, I hope mine looks that good.

    62 Pontiac Catalina Sedan- New Hampshire SP
    1962 Pontiac Catalina...sort of a restored build. I originally built this back when the AMT kit first came out, but the homemade decals I used back then sort of disintegrated. So I cleaned it all up and changed the livery to the New Hampshire State Police. The body is all plastic, I converted the AMT body into a 4 door with some filing, putty and plastic. Engine is fully detailed, lots of photo etch parts from the Model Car Garage set were used as well. Decals by Pursuit Plastics. My research shows that NH used Chevy Biscaynes in 62, but I read that their bosses usually had upgraded cars, so I went with the possibility that they may have used these. Overall it has held up pretty well over the years...

    37 Ford Sedan - New Jersey State Police
    Built using a resin 4 door sedan body from Hendrix, mated to the Revell 37 Ford street rod kit and the 37 Ford pickup for some of the stock parts.  I had originally built up the pickup chassis to use as the donor because it more closely resembles the stock set up.  The chassis fit very well, but the body sat way too high, probably about 5 or 6 scale inches.  So I built up the street rod chassis and used the stock wheels and tires from the pickup.  Not that easy of a swap, but I got it done.  It basically curbside though, there's no engine or chassis details added.  The body was a whole 'nother nightmare.  It looked like a very nice casting and all test fits went well, but once everything got meshed together, the interior did not want to cooperate with the body and floor/chassis.  In the end, after a bunch of trimming, I had to live with it.  The interior sits too high within the body, allowing some of the side panels to rise above the window line at the back side windows.  To lower it to correct height would have meant taking a substantial piece of the bottom of the back seat out, and it just wasn't worth it at that point.  Paint is Tamiya, decals by Pursuit Plastics.

    Just, WOW!!  Love the full size land yachts, especially those that look this good.  Everything about it is just so...right.

    Excellent job.  Love the plain work truck look you gave it.

    Perry's was great, but he's out of the resin business.  Bandit Resins does have a nice 79 2 door.
