Scale I Build

  1. 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
  2. Yep that's right! I have plenty of projects on the workbench but I knew as soon as these kits were in my hands I would be Sweeping the Bench off to focus my efforts on getting one of these Awesome 78 4 door sedans built. I plan on making some changes to the chassis and engine bay so it will look less like the MPC kit. I'm really excited to get it started. So much so that I don't even have a plan for it. ? One will become an LA Black and White... later on, but I want to build a civilian/general public car... maybe a Driver's Ed or Pizza delivery driver from the 70's early 80's?
  3. 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
  4. Hello.my next project 79〜81 dodge st regis. I plan to finish it as a police car.
  5. Made a few minor tweaks to the Motor City Resin Kurbmaster kit to get it closer to the Chevy C20 shown in my references. Very nice kit, and good for my first resin kit given the simple shapes and low parts count. Decals by Speedway; roof-mounted AC unit and ladder racks scratchbuilt. Ladders are from an AMT American LaFrance fire truck. The lights are a modified Custom Squads item, and the sirens are from the Downrange Productions store on Shapeways. Chris
  6. Hello folks, I've been a member here a while but hardly ever post. I am a LEO in the south (La.) of many years but my main modeling interest has been mostly police cars most of my life.. Back in the late 90's I was the one who did the master for the 1978 Ford LTD that All American Models released, just before they went out. Since then I have done a few others, one is the above 98-91 CV, another is the 1977 Pontiac LeMans Enforcer, or for those that may not know, the Buford T. Justice Sheriff Car. I have a few others in the pipeline, one being another release of the 78 LTD, a 75-76 Custom 500
  7. Johnny Lightning Coca-Cola van, stripped & repainted with Tamiya pure white. Custom decals by Speedway. I added the oval-shape to the front grille to backdate it. The '97 also featured a different side mirror design than depicted on the Johnny Lightning model, so the mirrors themselves are from the AMT rescue van, attached to mounts shaped from music wire. The roof-mounted corner mirror is from the AMT ALF Eagle pumper kit. The "windows" in the side doors are black decal. The three roof-mounted floodlights are Shapeways items from the Downrange Productions store.
  8. Good afternoon all. I recently received a shipment from Custom Squads resin after getting a message from blubaja that they were back in business after a long absence. I have never purchased from them before as I was not into this hobby back then, but I have only heard great things about this company and had seen some of their work in Terry Jessee's books. So I wanted to go ahead and share pictures of some of the items I got. You will have to excuse the quality but they were taken with my phone: First is the Caprice conversion set for the Revell 1994 Impala SS: Up next is one of th
  9. Overhead lights from Custom Squads, decals by Speedway, scratchbuilt antennas & rear step. Chris
  10. Roof lights are a modified Custom Squads item, and decals by Speedway. Body paint is from automotivetouchup.com, and I used Alclad chrome on the grille and wheel covers. Chris
  11. This one's number 3. Backstory is a poor amateur radio operator needed a used car with a strong electrical system. This one looked like a good deal as an ex-Michigan State cruiser, maybe used by a ranking trooper as it had some nicer features. Colors are are by guess, I couldn't find 2 pictures that agreed.
  12. This is the very nice Norscot Tahoe, factory-painted white. I added Speedway Decals, pillar spotlights & siren speakers from Shapeways, roof lights from Custom Squads, scratchbuilt/spares box antennas, and the wraparound parts of the grille guard were shaped from brass rod and added to the center kit part. Chris
  13. OOB except for the hub caps, which are Parts by Parks, and custom decals by Speedway Decals. Chris
  14. Custom decals by Speedway Decals. I swapped the stock wheels that come with the white model for the police-style steel wheels of the police boxing. The push bumper is from the Welly Tahoe with Shapeways siren speakers. Pillar spotlights from the spares box. Chris
  15. Stripped the factory Coca-Cola paint and then repainted with Tamiya Pure White. Custom decals by Speedway Decals; roof lights are from the CMW Crown Vic, and the rear-facing directional lights were scratchbuilt Chris
  16. Repainted stock version with the wheels from the CHiPs version. Roof lights & prisoner partition are from the Revell '91 Caprice, and custom decals by Speedway Decals. Pillar spotlights are from the Lindbergh Crown Vic. Chris
  17. I used the 2016-2019 style headlight & taillight decals I found on eBay to update the body style. Custom decals by Speedway Decals; roof lights from Custom Squads. Push bumper is a modified kit part with Shapeways siren speakers. Chris
  18. This is the Motor Max diecast model that Testors reboxed in kit form; custom decals by Speedway; spotlights, grille strobes, and roof light mounts are 3-D printed Shapeways items. Grille guard is scratchbuilt, and the dash-mounted radar is from policecarmodels.com Chris
  19. Wheels/tires are from AMT's 56 Victoria. Rotating light & side mirrors from the spares box, decals by SpeedwayDecals.com Chris
  20. 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 detecti
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. Hi guys Happy New Year 1/24 Testors Police Interceptor
  24. 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.
  25. 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 inc
