Hi guys,

here is my latest build, starting with a Roscoe's police car, I aded vinyl top, chage the wheels for some "mag 500", put some white wall tires ( decals from Revell in fact ). I've done a lot's of job on the rear bumper to replicate the original one, I've cut the license plate place as it was too flat, and make it deeper, I've done the bumper guards in scratch. On the front, I've cut the headlight and put some clear in place of, I've modify the engine bay to look a bit more realistic without the hole between the finner fender and the hood border line.

Hope you'll like it

Stunning conversion! It reminds me of the one my neighbor had when I was growing up. Tough, sturdy car, and it survived a ton of abuse. Great job! Looks perfect to me.

The last picture against the edging, from perspective almost made it look like a picture of a 1:1 parked at a scenic overlook. Very nice build on this.

Great looking Monaco! I started a similar project and want to include small mud flaps and a vinyl roof. Seeing your finished project is great motivation!
