  1. Simple and clean, nice. I really like what you did with the taillights.
  2. 1990-1991 Ford Taurus Dash

    Phillip was kind enough to send me a dash. Still looking for the steering wheel. It came on other AMT Ford kits of the era, including the 1995 F-150. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    It would not be out of the police car kit with the CHP unit depicted but it would be the 911 kit.
  4. 1990-1991 Ford Taurus Dash

    I'm looking for the 1990-1991 dash and steering wheel from the AMT Ford Taurus kit.
  5. Will you also be working on the appropriate wheels and hubcaps?
  6. Some kits up for trade!

    PM sent.
  7. Some kits up for trade!

    I was curious to know if the decal sheet was still there.
  8. Dave, I'll be watching this. Definitely a product I'd be interested in purchasing.

    What are the contents inside the Ford Taurus Police car box?
  10. Is that a rear deck light that you added? Are you trying to make a slick top? The regular patrol cars (the first that would have been on the scene and all shot up) all had light bars. A heavily damaged slick top car probably wouldn't be accurate as those were driven by the SWAT/other specialized guys who arrived late to the party. Not criticizing. It seems like you're striving for accuracy so I want to help.
  11. I also share your love for this generation of trucks. As for aftermarket parts for these trucks, BNL Resins is your best bet. As an example, here's a set of 1992-1996 rims that they exclusively make: http://www.b-n-lresins.com/shoppingopencart/Aftermarket-resin-cast-1-24-1-25-scale-hobby-model--wheels/Ford-wheels-num-2-resin-cast-1-24-1-25-scale
  12. Top notch build! Excellent job.
  13. 2019 Round2 Car Kit Releases

    I bought the decal sheet from 2012 a few months ago on ebay. I wanted the CHP and Las Vegas decals. I was not disappointed at all. I wish they did another "multi pack" set like this one. Since police car schemes were so much simpler back int the 70's, it wouldn't exactly break AMT's bank. CHP is a lot like the current Coca Cola branding, people will buy any kit that has them just for the association.

    The third blue light on the right didn't start until 1984. But apart from that, I share your sentiments about the potential of an "updated" CHP Monaco. I bought a Joker goon kit right before this announcement, but if they do it right, I'll buy more. I expect they'll use the same CHP decals from the 1970 Ford police car kit. I hope they do as those are extremely accurate and I'd buy the kit just for those.
  15. That is stunning! I'm happy to finally see one built up.
