    We're on a roll now.
    Love me them late war German jets. Get some Joe!
    Bill that's one reason I never built a bi plane. Well I did but it sure didn't look like what it was supposed to.

    I cannot begin to speak on this, so I will just quote my eloquent brother from another mother. 
    Stay strong Harry.

    CPD '49 Ford.
    Thanks to a generous forum member, I aquired a set of Chicago Police decals and the period cop stuff from the new '48 Ford kit. I am planning to build a shoebox cop car as seen here.
    "148" is a restored '50 model 4 door, but you get the idea.
    Naturally the body is in the purple pond already and I will be busy busy for the next two weeks.
    More to come.

    Thanks Pete!
    I just got tired of weathering my models "like everyone else". Looking through some books for inspiration, I discovered photos of this. It took on a life of it's own after that.

  5. Agent G added a post in a topic What kind of job do you have?   

    Nearly 37 years in law enforcement. Retired once, got bored and went right back after moving west to Las Vegas.  
    I am a "Senior Agent" (sergeant) with the Nevada Gaming Control Board. It's a state law enforcement agency tasked with policing the gaming industry. I specialize in computer fraud, money laundering and anything else criminal that comes my way.

    My brother in law wanted to take a day trip in his then new Challenger. I'm not sure what was worse, Death Valley in the early summer, or riding/driving the Challenger. He finally gave it to his daughter.

  9. Agent G added a post in a topic 88 Times a Day....Smartphones   

    I find the use of cell phones to be very generational. My younger detectives text and text and text. Us older guys call and talk to each other. 
    I interviewed for a promotion the other day. One question asked by the Captain in charge of the unit was "Do you know the NRS (Nevada Revised Statute) pertaining to such and such? Reply "Not off hand, I didn't think minutia was all that important." "Besides, I can look up anything I require in seconds on several electronic devices at my immediate disposal." 
    While not the answer the goof was looking for, I made my point which was all I intended to do anyway. 
    I come from an era when my computer was under my hat. I committed to memory that which I felt was necessary, the rest could be looked up later. I do the same now, it's just that I can look it up quicker.

    Mom had a "71, Champagne gold with a dark brown vinyl top. I took my driver's license road test in it.
    MrsG had a purple '72 when she lived in Gurnee.
    Yeah, I'd buy it.

    No tattoos, against my religion (really), no piercings either (same reason).
    I have a smartphone that I use daily to direct my detectives.
    GPS and such is a wonderful thing.
    I live and work in Nevada so it's a hands free automotive environment for me baby.  
    I too have electricity and indoor plumbing, air conditioning as well.

    If I had the room to place the finished piece, it would already have been built!
    The green tape is Tamiya tape cut into thin strips to better replicate scale "speed tape". I wanted to create a visual difference between the sealant material, a form of "plastic" sheet, and the fabric tape. 
    Thank you all for the comments!

  14. Agent G added a post in a topic Models at the Office?   

    I rotate my cop car builds periodically. My Chief and one Deputy Chief keep models on display in their offices as well so I'm in good company. The chief was a helicopter pilot in a past life and the DC was a cop in California. 
    Lots of the guys and gals are retired from other police departments and keep models or diecasts of their cars at their desks.
