    Excited to see your setup.

    Thanks Casey. Looks like they really decided to go cheap on this re-pop. They're using the oldish North Carolina Highway Patrol pre-painted car as a base, although the Alabama scheme is on the box. Whereas on the last reissue there were about 5 different pre-painted variants. I would have thought that advertising it as a "police" car would be more marketable than a "security" car but who knows what was behind the decision.

    The Tamiya paints sound enticing, but I am not sure I have anything to offer. I can dig around and see though.

    If you can't find the Revell Impala wheels, these are basically resin copies:

    Somebody did post a comparison thread. I can't find it right now. But the Lindberg kit is far superior to the Revell kit.

    Thanks Danno! Here's the picture from their site:

    Based on the picture, it's pretty much an exact re-issue of their state police series, but with the "security" graphics. So nothing to celebrate  Well, at least the display case might entice some.

    Does anybody know how the last reissues of the Lindberg CV kit did? I still see a lot floating around. At this point I'm just waiting to see what new decals/equipment they are reissued with, if any.

    Yep, that's where I got my picture from.

    Lindberg Crown Victoria? New Or Reissue?
    I was looking at the Tower Hobbies website recently and came across this page for a 1/25 Bld/Dsply Security Car (Crown Vic):

    My brain tells me that it's just going to be another reissue of their 1996-1997 Crown Victoria (which was re-released just a few years ago). But does anybody have any news on it and if it may be a new model?

    Thanks guys, I'm just waiting to hear back from them. I haven't receive a response in a  few days.

    How's the quality?
    There's an ongoing WIP thread about a P&P Chevy C-6500 cab and the OP complained about the poor quality. The pictures didn't make the product look great:

    Just curious to know about people's experiences.
    Thanks
