    No prob;  glad to help, Alan.  
    I was disappointed that such an outstanding kit had such comic-book 'cop car parts,' but that seems to be par for the course.

    Wow, Harry.  You REALLY are having a bad time!
     
    Didn't you notice that little scam of theirs when you signed up?  You know, it was right there . . .  on line 4,583 of the User Agreement you electronically signed after you scanned through it.  
    They COUNT on no one ever taking time and trouble to read those "agreements."
     
    Seriously, my sincerest sympathies for the lousy year you've been having.  Hope it just keeps getting better and better!

    Mike, 
    Being back in your old self . . . is that a good thing?   
     
    Just kidding, you know.

    Here's what the R2 website says:
     
    BUILD & DISPLAY SET - SECURITY CAR SERIES
    Item No: HL123
    Release Date: June 2015
    Lindberg re-introduces its line of Crown Victoria models with a new spin and an added bonus! These well-engineered and detailed kits come completely pre-painted and come with new decal options to decorate in several fun schemes ranging from asylum security to mall security cars and more. On top of this great model, a stunning display case is included to showcase the finished model. The case is suitable for use with any 1/24 or 1/25 automobile model. The case is crystal clear and features a chrome diamond plate base.

    Sadly, just like the sedan kit, the 'cop car parts' are quite deficient . . . other than the beacon.  
    The beacon is a good representation of a Federal Beacon Ray.  Best of all, the station wagon kit has a decal to replicate the Federal label that was prominent on the front of Beacon Rays.  Better still, there are a couple of extras - - so, you can use them to retro-fit other beacons like the ones in the sedan kit, etc.
    But, the radio unit is still over-sized (too large for scale), and there is still no speaker unit for it.  The "spotlight" is a heavy-handed pedestal light.  And, the siren is badly done, with its pedestal mounted to the turbine shroud rather than to the motor housing.  
    Curiously, there is no 50's style whip antenna, but there is a 60's style antenna mast.  
    Ah, well.  Close, but no cigar.

    Whew!    I thought you were calling me a monkey!

    There's been no indication that Round2 would tool anything new, let alone another old Crown Vic (what with all the Lindberg reissues and the new tool Revell snapper), let alone market it under the Lindberg name.
    The safe bet is that this 'security car' is another reissue of the old '96-'97 Crown Vic from yesteryear.
  13. Danno added a post in a topic Next up from Moebius ?   

    A  Moebius-quality detailed '53-'54 Studebaker Champion/Commander pillar coupe (like the Miss Deal body) would be a winner.  To milk the investment from the mold, it could later be produced as a '55-'57 Champion/Commander coupe, Starlite HT, Sport, then morph into the Hawk series (Hawk, Silver Hawk, Golden Hawk) in its various forms from '58 - '62.  Great cars, great variations, great multiple issues ~ not even counting the stock, custom, gasser, variations. 
    If they do it, I'll go broke!   
     
    PS:  Even the screwball '58 Packard 'catfish' that was based on the Loewy coupe platform.

    Me, too.  He's always been an icon of the hobby!
    I was blown away several years ago when my good friend (the late) Andy Kallen introduced me to Jim.  The three of us chatted for a few hours.  What a fascinating guy with what would pass for an encyclopedic photographic memory!  
    I was even more surprised a couple of times over the years since when Jim has recognized me and chatted up like we were long, lost friends!  Never misses a beat.
    What a guy.
  15. Danno added a post in a topic First Detailed Look and Kit Commentary - new Moebius '65 Plymouth Satellite   

    It is amazing - the number of nicely built models that show up on the contest tables with wheel/tire misfit issues like the example at right.  Instantly kills the "accurate" replication of a vehicle and makes an otherwise fine model look toyish.
