  1. Subaru WRX Police Pursuit

    Tamiya 1999 Subaru WRX WRC car repurposed as a Victorian (Australian state) Police high speed pursuit vehicle. Built as a slammer with blacked out glass and no engine. The kit's rally tyres were swapped out for treaded road tyres. The light bar was homemade with clear acetate droop molded over a wooden buck heated in the kitchen oven with a brass base and chrome spruce pieces inside to represent the lights. Tamiya clear red and blue finish it off. Homemade Police decals and side strips. Added stretched spruce and acupuncture needle antennas plus a scrap sprue speed detection unit. Rattle can white finish and homemade custom number plates that give a nod to the rally car's major sponsor "555".
  2. Hello.my next project 79〜81 dodge st regis. I plan to finish it as a police car.
  3. Built these for a couple of retired Tyler officers. These are the AMT Joker Goon Car/Gotham City police boxing, with wheels, tires, and overhead lights by Custom Squads, and custom decals by Speedway. Jonah
  4. Hi guys Happy New Year 1/24 Testors Police Interceptor
  5. '33 Ford Tyler TX Police

    OOB except for the license plates and an MV Products lens for the tail light. Custom decals by Speedway Decals.
  6. Wheels & rear deck lights from Custom Squads, decals by Speedway Decals. This represents a patrol vehicle that was reconfigured for duty as a supervisor's car, so I simulated a few rubber plugs where the wiring for the roof lights & antennas were removed.
  7. 76 Plymouth Fury Tyler TX PD

    Did what I could with the headlights to get closer to a 76, compared to the later style in the kit. Decals by Speedway, overhead lights from Custom Squads. Chris
  8. Combined the Revell Impala & Caprice kits to get a '95 Caprice; wheels & tires, side mirrors, spot lights, and license plate mount are all Custom Squads resin. Custom decals by Speedway Decals. Roof light legs are from Shapeways. Jonah
  9. My latest project start, my take on the 1971 Ford Galaxy 500. It uses a old AMT Boss 429 Police Car as the base donor. See if I can make a Gator McKlusky ride!
  10. Pretty much the same kit as the Sheriff Roscoe's Police Car (MPC 707) reissued a few year ago, this time with new box art and a resin Joker figure. "Stock Dodge Monaco" might be a bit of a stretch with the super-deep steel wheels and matching tires, though...
  11. 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..
  12. Impala Police Car

    Hi folks ! Today i like to show you my Impala police car . Enjoy , greetings from Germany
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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:
  16. 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!!
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. 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..
  21. 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
  22. 1/24 Motor Max model with various details and improvements. Thanks for looking- Jonah
  23. From the 1/24 Motor Max model, with various improvements and details added. Thanks for looking- Jonah
