Hi thanks and again you did a awesome Job on that build I have two set's of the Chicago decals from the JoHan kits and I want to do a couple of cars from the mid 60's maybe a ford or chevy or dodge. One I thought about would be the 60 Ford I remember that year the City went from the old black cars with the red mars light to the first blue and white from Jan to June the new blue and whites had red mars lights and then in June to Oct they got them all changed over to the new blue lights it was wild seeing a bunch of them at a call and some had blue and others had red I remember my father saying is there now two deferent Dept's I was only 8 at the time. Also most people don't know that 90% of all the cars from 58 through 74 only had in line 6's. I'm sure your uncle was very happy with it I know I would have been.
Hi first that is a awesome build very nice. I'm 65 and have lived in Chicago all my life and I'm retired PD your right and wrong in 1970 Fords were used for police cars but that was the year the city started to change the look half the car's looked like your build the other half were the new all white with the big blue stripe down the side and those cars also had the new roof bar with the two mar's lights and the two center lights the front was blue the back was red and hooked to the brake's. Also the one's like you built that had the two lights in the rear window were only used on Lake shore drive and on the expressways only the city cars did not have the light's in the rear. I hope this helps there was a guy who had a site that had every picture of all the Chicago police cars from 1900 through 2007 but I have not been able to find that site anymore.
I will be very care full about ordering this one I love the 60 Ford and I have 2 of each of the last 3 release's I really do not think AMT or round-2 has made any new custom parts for this kit the kit first came as just stock then they had a custom kit witch only had the mag's and side pipes and some custom parts for the motor then it was released as both with all the same parts so until someone show's it open and layed out I will hold off.
Awesome job on the Vette I love the color I have always had a love for vette's Back in the late 70's I had two I had a 65 and a 69 wish I had kept them ! By the way I had to laugh I have the same coffee table it's a great table the grandkids can't destroy it.!!!!!
Hi I hope this helps I to am a big Krylon fan I use it on a lot of plastic projects but I have found that when it comes to models it is not as good as if I used the Model Master or Tama brand for both the primer and finish coat. I have had this happen to a couple of my cars both Revel and AMT so I have stopped using it on my cars and stick to the model paint. Someone had told me that in some cases the Krylon is to strong of a base chemical for the light plastic used on models.
Hi no problem when I took out the chassis and turned it over it looked just like the one from the AMT 66 Fairlane and there 67 Comet. I just saw your from Northbrook ill I'm a block from Park Ridge on the Chicago side let me know if you would like to talk I have been looking for other guys that are in the bobby that are close I'm retired now so for the winter this is my job LOL !!! When spring come back I like take out my 67 Mustang GT Convertible.
Ho Ho Ho.!!! I got my 4 Comets from Modelroundup yesterday Going to start on one tomorrow.!!!!!! From going through the kit they are awesome very nice kit now I wish they would do a 64 and a 70 with the same detail as this one has.!!!!
