2008 Crown Victoria Brick Township PD Cruiser

Posted · Report post

This is the first (and maybe my last) Metal Model kit from Testor. Me personally, I don't count Metal Model or diecast kits modeling... But I wanted to build my town's cruiser and there's no plastic model kits of this vehicle so I had no choice but to build it using the metal body kit.

I did detail the inside and added Bare Metal Foil around the door trims and hand painted some of the exterior details to make it look closer to the real vehicle. Had custom decals created and used the lightbar from the Lindberg Dodge Charger Police cruiser kit.

Well, here's the finished product.

Why? What difference does it make what material the body is made of?

True if all you do is put them together. :P You should check out Larry and Cliff Read's builds. They build amazing models that puts most styrene kits to shame. Go here and you'll see diecasts in a whole new light...... http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?app=core&module=search&do=user_activity&search_app=forums&mid=7441&sid=6c72258385d55db5de74dfa90c0b538a&search_app_filters[forums][searchInKey]=&userMode=title

Okay, I'm amazed. What Larry and Cliff do with diecast models is very impressive.

Diecast, I used to call them glorified pull toys, but, the more I look at them, the more I am convinced of what a good alternative they really are.

Thus, very nice job on your replica!
