Just finished this after wanting to make a model of this type for a long time, added the computer, although may be slightly fictional still looks very bad ass.

Really like the outcome of this model, the wood is home depot pine routed with a ridgid router and stained with sedona red with 2 coats of high gloss polyurethane.

Taking small pieces of blue tape and slowly outlining each trim with it, i seem to suck at bare metal foil and its also expensive so i just paint the trimmings by masking them off... very slow and boring process that extends the build by a long time. lol

Kind of the plan here for a decent display, i enjoyed making the wood and love the models when they finally go together.

The other 4 spots are for a 1968 4 door Plymouth fury in white, a 1965 continental in black, another 1970 ltd in ivory, 1970 Pontiac Bonneville in red and there is also a working rotating display which i want to place a 1962 electra on with a continental kit.post-10452-0-54926400-1361831417_thumb.j

Very well done model. It reminds me of Steve McGarrett's car in the original Hawaii 5-0 TV show, although I think that was a Mercury. The wooden base is classy. Good work!

With that police in-car computer, it could be a piece from the unfortunately short-lived series "Life on Mars" a few years ago.

Nice job.
