  1. Having done the 1988 - 1991 Ford LTD Crown Victoria, I thought I'd back up and do the earlier version that begins with the downsize in 1979. Since most of the tough work of the overall body was done in the 91 CVPI master, I took one of the test shots of the body that Greg had cast and sent me and tried to see how far I could get in modifying that into the basic 79-87 box form. And since Mike Schnur removed the header panel on the 91 to facilitate casting of the 91, that helps too because there are two basic header panel shapes and three maybe four different grilles that came and went on the car in those years. All I have to do is create each header/grille and that along with the taillight treatment (2 versions there) will decide which year is depicted. So, just to see how hard modifying resin would be I tackled the rear section first. And then I did the hood. Next up are those headers and bumpers. Here are a few pics..
  2. Impala Police Car

    Hi folks ! Today i like to show you my Impala police car . Enjoy , greetings from Germany
  3. After a couple short deployments , I bellied back up to the workbench. This started out as the Gotham PD car and I was not pleased with the build. Bad fits and lack of some details. I decided to put the A318 pursuit “Chrysler clean burn system” engine with the spark control system attached to the air cleaner. Swapped out the grill and headlights for a correct Plymouth one, added bumperettes and painted with Regatta metallic blue. Fabricated the light bar and put correct wheels and dog dish rims from Fireball model works. The first pick is what I was going for.
  4. Modern Police Car Parts

    Does anyone know where I can get parts (light bar, push bar, interior divider, etc.) for police car models? I used Conroy's Cruises (http://www.conroyscruisers.com) in the past for Bilbozo decals, however I am unsure if they carry the modern police car light bars. I have sent emails and have received no responses from them, so I am unsure if they are around anymore. I want to make a Dodge Magnum K-9 car, but i am having trouble finding the special police car parts I need. Thanks
  5. This is a nice little subject that is very popular with the 1:1 police collectors/restorers. The ready availability of the MPC Squad Rod along with my fervent desire to do anything 1) POLICE, 2) 4dr and last but not least 3) 1970's brought me to this one pretty quick. Most of what one needs is there but as always one must spend quite a while removing the styrene kit builders equivalent of a heroin addiction to fastback roof lines on dang near every kit out there and fashioning in a more dignified and authoritative 4dr c-Pillar. Plus a natural sedan trunk lid surface. In its current incarnation with me, it's almost done. And only about 2 & a half months on it too! (of course there are three others on the bench right now too) Am I getting faster? Personally, I sure hope so as long as the end result does not suffer. There was some tedious re-aligning of the door tops from sloping downward 2dr ones to almost squared off 4dr ones. plus you must add the Impala/Caprice body accent welt line from the top edge of the rear door across and down the rear quarter panels. it is VERY faint in this scale and takes a bit of doing. Please have a look, and thanks for stopping by! Phase 1:
  6. Hello Modelers! "Submitted for your approval" .. ( I feel like Rod Serling. Next I'll be seeing strange creatures out my window monkeying with my CVPI!) The start of a 67 Chevy Biscayne 4dr. This takes a bit of doing in that whilst the donor kit is readily available in the 67 Impala SS, it is a fastback and only a 2door to boot. The basic wheelbases are the same between 2-4drs but there is different sheet metal work and termination points on the door tops. The original kit had a very long sloped roof out to the end of the trunk. A conventional "C" pillar had to constructed along with lowering the trunk deck height to sedan like levels. More pics to come but this is the start.. The first pic is from the kit box showing the car's SS (SuperSloping) fastback roofline. That had to go and a new sedan conventional C-pillar built. Yes, it was a PITA. Notice the tops of the doors had to be raised up level to match a new flatter upper roof dripline. A lot of conversions I have seen have left that precipitous drop in door level of the 2dr and just moved on. One was on a STATION WAGON. Anyway, you can see the styrene addition below in white at door tops. Filling it in.. Mor pics to come soon as I am currently building in the solid door window frame uppers. Thanks for looking! Oh, and as I put a notice on the "Parts Wanted' forum, I'm looking for anyone who might have a set of +69 Chevy Nova COPO poverty caps they're willing to part with. In the end, I'll buy a whole kit just to get 'em if I have to but I have to part out kits that way. At any rate, this model will need those one or two years only caps to be accurate. Thanks!!
  7. 1969 Nova COPO

    Hello! I am in search of a set of wheels and the button or poverty hubcaps from the 69 Chevy Nova COPO kit for use on a 4dr 67 Chevy Biscayne I have in the works right now. I'd hate to trash a whole kit just for those items. (as shown below) Open to purchase or even the loan of a set so they can be RTV molded for casting. Thanks for you're time! DEL.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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..
  11. 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
  12. 1/24 Motor Max model with various details and improvements. Thanks for looking- Jonah
  13. From the 1/24 Motor Max model, with various improvements and details added. Thanks for looking- Jonah
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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..
  17. 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
  18. Finished the MSP Ford this morning. Hope you dig it.
  19. 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:
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. Built this a while back. Knocked the dust off to put the board. Hope you enjoy.
