    Police Cars
    I'm in need of finding a current Ford Crown Vic model to build a Police Car. Does anyone offer such a kit in plastic or resin?

    Thanks!

    It seems to me that this auction is becoming more about who has the deeper pockets, fatter bank roll rather than actual value of the car..
    Just my thoughts.

    Arii Wheel and Tire sets?
    Does anyone know what happened or why Arii stopped making these real rubber tire and wheel sets?.
    They were my favorite.They only made four different wheel styles, each set on a spruce tree.
    Model Empire used to sell all four styles in one set package.They tell me they can't get them any more and don't know if they ever will again.
    Does anyone here have the scoop on Arii?

    Dan,Sorry I didn't catch the decal of Arfons.No disrespect intended. :wink:
    Your build quickly reminded me of one of Breedlove's earlier rides.

    Red White & Blue Paint Schemes?
    Needing some R.W.B. ideas.
    I am working on a project for a family member and want to use a patriotic color scheme.Would any of you fine modelers be willing to share pics of your red white and blue model paint schemes?.


    Thanks!

    Oh Billy, one other thing.I am working on a model for a friend in Florida.I won't ship it to him until this Fall when temps drop down around 60-70 degrees.
    The heat in those UPS and USMail trucks during Summer are just too high for me to be shipping a finished project out.

    Billy said, "I've been told they would be fine up to 200 Degrees F. If it gets that hot, I think we have bigger problems, but it may get up to 115-120."

    Billy, who ever told you that must not know how hot 200 degrees is!.If you want to do a little experiment, take an old unwanted body, or better yet, take your most prized possession and put it on a cookie sheet.Set your oven for 200 degrees and slide it in when the temp is at 200.Just let is set there all day long and see what you get.

    Now I'm not Bill Nye "The Science Guy" or Mr. Wizard, but 200 degrees is 200 degrees whether it's in an oven or in some HOT storage building.You would most likely end up with warped bodies and chassis.

    I don't trust the heat and I won't even store my kits in even 90+ temps.

    I don't see a problem with the cold though.It can't change the shape of the bodies like high heat can.
