Scale I Build

  1. Here are a few other Retro Fitted Caprice model cars. I started with the Caprice Police car kits, Impala ss model kits and Alternomad.kit. Hope you enjoy the end results
  2. 1991 was the last model year that the United States Border Patrol painted their vehicles white over light green (I don't know the exact paint code). Since the BP bought Caprices as their basic patrol sedan that year, they were the last sedans to utilize this paint scheme before the agency switched to all-white cars with a green stripe the following year. The kit is from Revell, Jetsonic light bar is from the AMT Ford Taurus police car kit, and decals are from Billbozo. Paint is Tamiya Pure White over Tamiya Pearl Green and the side molding was made from Evergreen stock. In retrospect, I should have added a cage for prisoner transport but we will just say this is a supervisor's car. This is my second complete kit and again, I learned a lot from it. I mostly got to work on my BMF techniques. The only real mess up I had was that I accidentally spilled glue on the front windshield, something I was not able to fix. The real deal (courtesy of copcar.com):
  3. Hi guys I`m Cosmo and this is my first post in here. I`m working on a conversion project that started from a MPC `76 Chevy Caprice 2-door coupe version. For some reason the body part was not molded well when I received the model and I think it`s beyond repairable. So I decieded to chop the damaged A-pillar and fender section and replace it with epoxy-bounded Foil material and gave it a damaged appearance. I always have a thing for the big, full-size american 4 door sedan in the 60`s and 70`s. So I converted the MPC 2-door coupe version to a 4-door sedan. I cut the B-pillar and fill the quarter window because I prefer a more traditional and thicker C-pillar which is different from the actual `76 Caprice sedan, but personally I prefer the look. I also rescribed the door panel lines and trunk. I used sterene sheet to reform the roof section and I sanded off the side trim to give the Caprice a more "base model" appearance. -------------------------------------------------------- I`ll keep the progress updated in here. Comments are greatfully appreciated!
  4. This took only 2 days to build. A nice kit, sprayed in One Coat De Ja Blue and Blazing Black 2-tone with dark grey interior. Extra decals by Dirty Donny.
  5. I plan on build Caprice coupe with the fishbowl glass 77-79. I have required the interior,body and glass. Does anyone know if there was made any kit`s,diecast or aftermarket options for the early versions? Any suggestions are welcome but in 1:24/1:25 scale only. Thanks Tommy
  6. This was done with old AMT Snap Kit. Used Mr Hobby paint and Slixx decals
  7. Good afternoon all. I recently received a shipment from Custom Squads resin after getting a message from blubaja that they were back in business after a long absence. I have never purchased from them before as I was not into this hobby back then, but I have only heard great things about this company and had seen some of their work in Terry Jessee's books. So I wanted to go ahead and share pictures of some of the items I got. You will have to excuse the quality but they were taken with my phone: First is the Caprice conversion set for the Revell 1994 Impala SS: Up next is one of the center console pieces also specifically designed for the Impala SS. With some adjusting, it should fit into any other vehicle: Then some 1/2-ton wheel covers that Ford used on their trucks/vans from the mid 80's to about the mid 90's: And finally some wheels for medium-duty trucks: Here is their website: http://www.customsquads.com/ They have a multitude of items listed and their service with me was great. I hope some of you find this helpful. Thank you
  8. Here is one of my builds. its a 1967 caprice demo car. hope you guys enjoy!
