  1. Yes, its a nice car. I also like how they put it next to the Volkswagen, same but different Porches were used by the Swedish police from 1965 until 1973. In 1965 the police decided that they needed some faster cars and were looking at two alternatives, Volvo P1800 and Porsche 912. They decided to go with 912. In 1970 they decided to replace some of the 912:s with 911T because they thought that the 912:s engine wasn’t reliable enough for police use.
  2. Visited the Police Museum in Sweden a couple of days ago and thought I would share some pictures of the cars and motorcycles. Saab 95, Volkswagen and Porsche 911T Plymouth Valiant (with Saab seats) and a Dodge Volvo 940 (Opel Kapitän, Saab 9-5, Chevrolet, Volkswagen T3 and Volvo 240 in the background) Volkswagen t3, two Volvo 240, Saab 900 and a Ford Tri-Star TSE 350 Saab 900 Turbo (unmarked traffic police unit) Saab 900 Motorcycles
  3. Maybe this could be an option https://www.modell-ovp.de/en/mercedes-benz-o404-shd-blau-2189.html its in 1:43 and not that detailed but it has some basic engine details. https://www.merlinhobi.com/urun/mercedes-benz-o404-otobus-nzg-model/ The bus-body looks accurate to me so with some scratch-building on the interior and engine it could get quite nice I think.
  4. There’s some discussions about Lindberg 1:20 kits on this site lately so I thought it was a good time to show my completed Ford Explorer Sport from Lindberg. I built this kit five years ago and it went fine to built, lots of details. There were three issues I remember, the taillights were tricky to get in place. The backside of the frontseat didn’t match completely so I had to use a sandpaper to remove the excessive material (so you don’t se the line between the front- and backseat). I also hade to drill out the holes in the roof for the roof rack (there were holes on the inside of the roof but they didn’t went all the way through), this can also be a good thing if you don’t want a roof rack. Overall, this was a joy to build as I like the subject. The glue on the taillights is a result of my struggle to get them to fit, they do fit but it was tight.
  5. Built this a couple of years ago, didn’t turn out perfect but good enough for me.
  6. Yes, I had some trouble getting it to seal shut. Don’t know why though, the hood isn’t to wide or to long. Maybe it’s something with the hinges. Should have test fitted before I started to build. I’ve bought one more which hopefully will turn out better thanks to everything I learnt from building this one.
  7. Looking for side mirrors for 1980-1985 Chevrolet Impala in 1:25 or similar scale.
  8. Looking for 1980-1985 Impala side mirrors

    Ok, thanks but I’m looking for the chromed ones.
  9. I bought it on eBay, there made in China. This is the ”cheaper” version, there’s an fancier edition with chrome grille and a bunch of other nice details but it costs a lot more. There’s an European manufacturer called Otto that also offers a version (“Limited” version) but its curbside without opening doors and engine. They aren’t that rare so u should be able to get one for a good price.
  10. Even though this one I have is a diecast and not a kit I thought I might mention it. its in 1:18 and have opening doors and trunk.
  11. I’ve been following the work with this car at this forum for along time and been planning to add a comment for a long time but I don’t know how to describe how amazed I am about this product. Thank you so much for all work that all of you are putting into this!
  12. Amt Nissan hardbody?

    Ive also built some Lindberg kits and like that they have a lot details. I built the 1991-1994 Explorer a couple of years ago and everything fitted nice, so nice that I bought another one to make the Eddie Bauer version. Im building the Chevrolet Blazer from Lindberg right but I have trouble with getting the parts to fit in that kit.
  13. Star Models

    Dont Know about the resin products but I have bougt some Monogram kits from Steve at Star Models and that have been a nice experience. I had no problems with transactions or delivery.
  14. Searching for any 1983 or 1984 steering wheel in 1/24 or 1/25 for Ford Mustang.
  15. Looking for a Ford Mustang SVO steering wheel in 1:24.
  16. I just received my 85 Impala from Modelhaus and also the dog dish caps from Modelhaus. I now wonder where I can find some proper wheels and tires for this model and caps? Im planning to use the Revell Caprice (Taxi / Police) as donor base model.
  17. Thanks for your help but its not exactly what Im looking for. Im appending some images of what type of wheels Im looking for.
  18. I just bought a 1985 Impala from Modelhaus and I'm planning to build a LAPD unit. And are curious about a few things - Did LAPD use 1985 Impala? If not which year models did they use? - what interior colors did they use? - Did they use bench seats ? - Did the rear seat have seat belts ? Photos would also be appreciated
  19. Hi, I'm searching for the 1984 Ford Mustang Convertible from Monogram (Molded in red). This kit: http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/86988-monogram-1984-mustang-convertible/
  20. I managed to find and buy this kit, so im no longer looking for it
  21. Thanks for your link Zen. Sadly the seller wouldn't ship outside USA.
  22. In the 80s the Chinese car company Beijing Jeep Corporation had a joint venture with AMC. This resulted in a local production of the Jeep Cherokee in Beijing.
