    Very interesting project. I love detail-oriented threads like this one. I too am interested in this class of trucks so I will be following closely.

    That looks perfect!

    The progress photos look good. I'm still interested.

    I ordered and received some products from them last fall or so. It definitely wasn't more than a  year ago. If they don't reply  back in a few days, try reaching them again.

    I get ya, I get ya. What I'm trying to get at is that I have ZERO experience with this and would rather not buy right now given that and the price. One day I'll learn

    But the front window though

    The headlights actually seem like a fairly easy fix. It's the lack of windows that is turning me off from getting one.

    I've been seeing this kit by AJ Resins on ebay on and off for some time now:

    It looks to be a modification of the Modelhaus Impala. The taillights look good but I am not satisfied with the way the headlights look. And the kit comes without glass, which is a big negative. Any thoughts guys?

    Love it! I like how you improvised with the wheels.

    Yes, my apologies. I initially coudln't find it. Here is Chuck Most's build of the Revell kit:

    Here is where he actually compares the two:

    On a related note, Lindberg just re-released yet another incarnation of the Crown Victoria. This is the 4th release and the 2nd in just the past year:

    We discussed this when the Revell kit was first announced:

    Somebody made a thread comparing the two models side by side. While I hear the Revell kit is not bad, the Lindberg kit is the best kit as it is much more detailed and well proportioned.

    You get the idea. Search around the site for stuff that you might find useful.

    The wheels on the most recent police kit are incorrect for that generation of the Expedition. They belong to 2010+ Expeditions/F-150s.
  14. av405 added a post in a topic Hummer H1, Meng Models   

    Though Hummers aren't exactly my cup of tea, I will probably be picking one up given Meng's track record of attention to detail. I'm thinking I can replicate the Border Batrol's BORSTAR/Rescue Hummer.
