    UDisco is worth the visit.

    Yeah...well...That's being worked on.

    I should have more details in a month or so.

    I've got one too. Got three possibilities for it and two of them involve red flashing lights.

    There's two fire departments in my neck of the woods that use FL series engine/tanker so that's one. Number two would be a walk-in rescue and number three would be a tow truck of some sort.

    I placed an order with him in the past week.

    No. I plan to get back to it next week. I've been finishing up a couple of car models for Classic Plastic this Sunday (Sept 16).

    Now all it needs is a set of Manitoulin decals.

    I'll see your Orleans County Sheriff pics and raise you a City of Newport Impala.

    FWIW, the Newport Fire Station used to be just past the end of the lot. It moved away from downtown 10 or more years ago.

    Current City of Newport police cars have black front & rear clips with everything else. AFAIK, none of their cars were destroyed. Just the Orleans County Sheriff.

    From what I've heard (I have a friend who is a City of Newport councilor), the Sheriff was leaning towards new Fords before this happened. Again, based on what I know, the Sheriff doesn't have much choice in the graphics package as all Vermont Sheriff cars use the same basic graphics - White cars with red graphics.

    I'm west of Maine but north of New York, Vermont and New Hampshire. That's right. I'm in the heart of french Canada. Magog, Quebec. The top of I-91 is roughly 30 miles south of me so I can almost see Vermont.

    To illustrate Art's point, this was painted using his TSC method.



    DupliColor Hot Rod Primer covered with Scale Finishes Synergy Green which was cleared with Testors One Coat Wet Look Clear (all lacquers). It was then dehydrated and then glazed with Meguiars Professional Glaze and then waxed with Meguiars Hi-Tech Yellow Wax (both tan bottles).

    You're not missing anything. No lift axle YET so there's nothing to put those two wheels & tires on.

    No progress since last time but I thought you might like to see it on 8 of it's 14 wheels & tires.

    2 full kits have given their parts for this project plus a donation of two more steer wheels. There's a total of 14 wheels & tires on it. Eight drive wheels and the rest are steer wheels.

    Got the shocks on the second steer axle and then I decided that I wanted to play tires. All 14 of 'em are mounted on their wheels.
