  9. LAPD Crown Vic: North Hollywood Shootout

    Interesting project, neat work on the bullet hole in the interior, One suspicion is that the reference pictures are from a movie car rental pen and not the real LAPD car as john noted the real car went back in service. Don't stop I want to see it done greg
  10. Easy fix, use packing peanuts inside the tire, greg
  11. Chinese tariff war and models

    Just wondering how this tariff rift will effect our hobby, Probably increase prices, Wonder if model companies could state that the model kits are just parts that are assembled in the United States and not just a single product. If anyone can put some insight into the import/export portion of our hobby it would be appreciated. greg

    Used the Revell 66 Suburban into Police unit, Don't know if LAPD ever used Suburbans but used Johan police parts and used Rustoleum paint for plastic white and Tamiya gloss black. Kit is fragile at front fenders above wheel well, right side cracked on me. Antenna base load is cut from Dental micro adhesive applicator. Greg
