    Adding to my border patrol collection, modified the Revell kit by filling in the sun roof, eliminated the dimples in the roof, In the interior used the old crown vic center console on top of the center console and the used the console lid and the keyboard from the crown vic console to make a stand alone lap top, Experimented with the blue light bar. Bill Bozo decals, had to trim up some of the green strip to fit

    Most difficulty was the red plastic and white paint, Thank goodness for white Tamiya putty. Used WalMart spray cans, gray primer for body work, flat white as a primer, gloss white base as a sealer, then falt white and finished with gloss white.
    Sorry, could not load photos into the thread

  7. GLMFAA1 added a post in a topic National convention coverage?   

    Peter, I was there Thursday and saw a peel scale modeler and by coincidence we stopped at a hobby shop in the suburbs of Columbus and ran into two Canadians in the shop that were there for the convention, I have posted a link to my Fotki site under the thread regarding IPMS Columbus
    I would highly suggest if the IPMS convention is ever near you it would be well worth the investment.

    Went there today, Another check off of the bucket list, Unbelievable the vendors and the aftermarket material for the wing and armor builders, few auto vendors, I got the Revell 57 wagon, Met some real nice people and great time, I am working on loading a Fotki album of the show. Hopefully up and running tonight, will list link when done.
    $5.00 day admission to 7 rooms of vendors and some remarkable entries.

    Never had kids but borrowed nieces and nephews, Always known as the uncle with the models, some had presents to take home, The best were the Monogram cartoon planes and hawk weirdos
    Always to strict in following instructions, forgot the adage about coloring inside the lines restricts imagination
