  1. Looking for your unused lights, sirens, radios, antennas, etc from the Revell ‘48 Ford and the Monogram ‘57 Ford Del Rio wagon. Happy to cover shipping; please contact me and we’ll work something out- Thanks Jonah
  2. Finally, it is done. I started a while back and just did a thrash on it the last two days. It’s a curbside because I want to use the Boss 429 for something else.
  3. Attached are a few pics of a project I've worked on for a couple of years and am now nearing completion. I like 4drs. Mostly so I can build my police car models but also because they are just so very rare in offerings from the styrene tyrants. This was a bit of a rough one. I used a promo for the base and unbeknownst to me, these promos are evidently injected in some kind of ABS or something NOT styrene. SO, you can't just work with grafting on styrene to build what you want. It all has to have styrene superglued to it as a base to work off of. Still, it is finally about done. I modified the tub, modded the rear bumper to create the four tailight base version over the six one on the Caprice. Another scrap grill donated the "Chevrolet" script for the header panel and I added the Bal Air's Chevy Bow Tie to the center of the grill. Make some door mirrors and find some button caps and it's done. Thanks for looking..
  4. 1/24 MotorMax diecast model with some parts from Lindberg's plastic kit. Decals by Speedway. The 1:1 The 1:24 The MotorMax model comes with mag wheels/low profile tires, so I substituted the Lindberg wheels/tires to get closer to the police look. Jonah
  5. 1/24 Motor Max model with various details and improvements. Thanks for looking- Jonah
  6. From the 1/24 Motor Max model, with various improvements and details added. Thanks for looking- Jonah
  7. I have the AMT 1970 Ford Galaxie police car kit and I want to make it in the Las Vegas version. There aren't many stickers for this version which is fine, but there isn't anything in the kit that tells you where to put the numbers for the squad car. I have looked at the pictures on the internet for "Diamonds are Forever" cop cars, but since it is all night time scenes it is really hard to see where the number might be. I think there is a number on the passenger side trunk near the tail light, correct me if I'm wrong. If anyone out there knows the correct location of the squad car numbers, please let me know.
  8. Let's see some police cars

    I'll get this started... I built this one up as a curbside over 20 years ago. No motor and no interior. For the decal - I took a picture of the real car door, got it developed and made a color copy on paper, cut it out and elmers glued them on. This was way before digital cameras were affordable.
  9. Another project I am working on simultaneously with my 91 Ford LTD Crown Victoria P71. A 76-77 Pontiac LeMans Enforcer, or in other words, Sheriff Buford T. Justice's ride. :-) Also used by many other dept.'s across the country including my buddy Bill in DFW who is waiting oh, so patiently for this one. So I THINK I am finally getting past the 80% mark. Apologies for the pics. My regular camera died, and I don't know much about adjusting the controls of my video cam that also takes pics but here are a few of it as best I could get. On top of it all they removed my fav. pic grooming program as well from my 'puter. Still a bit rough, but almost ready for drip moldings, trim, tail lights and other fine details and then it will be done. At least to me. Feel free to criticize & point out deficiencies, and thanks for stopping by..
  10. 70 Chicago PD Galaxie

    70 Ford Galaxie / Chicago PD. I know, I know........ I couldn't find any references showing CPD used these cars either, but my uncle was on the job then and swears up and down this was the scout cars they used and who am I to question it, he was on the job then, not me. This was a surprise gift for him, so I couldn't prod for too much info from him without him getting suspicious. It was a fairly quick build as he is moving out of state and wanted to get to him before he leaves
  11. Finished the MSP Ford this morning. Hope you dig it.
  12. Hallo, this is my latest build, the Nissan Fairlady 240ZG, used by Japanese highway police in 1970's. It's OTB plus some embossing powder for the carpet and BMF for the window frames. Interior: Chassis: Indoor pics:
  13. Once again, thanks for the ad. As a disclaimer, my focus is mainly on building cop cars and emergency type vehicles. Everyone has their niche and that happens to be mine. Enough of that. Stared at this kit for a few months and couldn't decide what agency I wanted it to be. Finally, after some google searching, I decided it's gonna end up a Minnesota state patrol car. So I did some digging and found they used Furys in 70 but did use Ford custom 500's in 69. We'll, the 70 is gonna have to work after seeing that Maroon color. I wasn't getting terribly specific about the engine. Apparently the kit doesn't come with the correct one, so I may bend a little truth on that and just generalize it as a 390. Bottom line is that I just don't see a lot of Minn State Patrol cars being done and this is my attempt.
  14. Did this over summer. Started as all black. Stripped and painted in MSP blue. Scratch built radar units and laptop. Hopefully video link shows up https://youtu.be/htQf_J9lyJc
  15. Built this a while back. Knocked the dust off to put the board. Hope you enjoy.
  16. Harley Police. Bike

    Not sure of manufacturer. 1/12 HD police motorcycle. Detroit Arsenal PD.
  17. This started out as a Norscot blank white tahoe. Stripped, painted and detailed. Did my own decals, fabricated the spot lights and radar units and what not. Thanks for looking.
  18. Had a good friend that's retired from Detroit and wanted a model of his car done. Problem is that good luck finding a 73 Fury in 1/25 scale. Sooooo, I cannibalizes 2 JoHan 68 Pursuit cars and did what I could. Glad to be part of the group.
  19. After a very long dry spell from modeling that saw me finish school, become a sworn peace officer, and just grow up in general, I finally got to sit down and finish a model. Here is my 1990 Ford Taurus police-package car in Utah Highway Patrol markings. The Taurus is the Rescue 911 version of the AMT Taurus as it has the correct 1990-1991 dash and steering wheel that the real police versions had. Resin wheels are from Custom Squads/Models by Tony, decals from Chimneyville, police equipment is a mixture of stuff from the Taurus kit, the Lindberg Crown Victoria kit, and the Revell Caprice kit. The Ford decals also came from the Crown Victoria kit and the slotted grill vents came from the 1989 "Police Car" version of the Taurus kit. About the kit itself, it wasn't exactly the easiest to work with. First and foremost, the AMT Taurus is not a true police package/base model kit but a SHO version. To make the car more accurate, I filled in the "SHO" emblem in the rear bumper, sanded off the corner signal lights on the front bumper, and cut/sanded down the car flares surrounding the bottom of the wheel arches. The front bumper is still technically incorrect but I decided I didn't want to push my still-developing skills. Also, the front headlights didn't fit properly but I didn't notice until it was too late. The wheels were also a pain in the behind and the front passenger side one ended up not fitting very well, even with extensive modification (as you can see below). As for the final product itself, I was pleased given the custom work I had to perform. I got a chance to practice some new techniques and figure out some do's and dont's. I did not polish the paint job, but that is something I will definitely tackle on my next build. Oh and I accidentally dropped the car near completion, resulting in some minor scratches near the front passenger side wheel well Without further ado: I used pictures I found on the internet and reruns of Real Stories of the Highway Patrol to piece together a fairly accurate interior of an early 90's UHP car: The inspiration: This one is a 1992 but it provided an excellent shot of the rear lighting and antenna setup: Both pictures above are not mine.
  20. I started this car back in October 2012, and I'm getting back at it to try to finish it up. Here is where I stand right now: Engine Interior Undercarriage The body is at the "Paint Shop" right now (thank you Tom ), so hopefully I'll have more updates once the body is all painted.
  21. Here is a project I have been working on from time to time. I always wanted to do a model of the Diplomats the Louisiana State Police fielded from 1981-1982. The '81's were different colors which was great for sneaking up on folks, but the 82's were the standard white. For this model I created a custom scratchbuild model of the Whelen 8000, or 80H lighbar. Just the process of building the ase and the buck to vacuform the lens was a ordeal. But I have never seen this bar represented in the police modeling world before. It was widely used coast to coast but it was while Fed Signal was still king and Whelen was it's more affordable competition. This bar has the inboard strobes each side of the speaker grille front and back, along with outboard halogen rotaters. The Jabsco spotlight on top is also scrachbuilt as are the bump bars and the seat console fed signal PA70 modular console complete with tiny maplight. It might show in the pics if you look. Thanks for stopping by!!
