Hi Low!

I love the authoritative style and the different graphics on US Policecars.
I got a huge collection in scale 1/87.

In 1/18 I do only collect 'black & whites' from California.

These are mine:

Camaro Z28 'CHP' [SunStar]
front
back

Ford CrownVic 'CHP' [MotorMax]
front
back

Ford CrownVic 'LAPD' [AUTOart]
front
back

'85 Ford Mustang 'CHP' [GMP]
back
door badge

and a Caprice 'Glendale Police' [UT] with selfmade pushbar and flashing lightbar (short vid cap)


:cheers

oh man those are nice :cheers :nicejob ! the Caprice i have isnt a UT model, it is "custom made" and it shows when up close. but it displays very nicely and looks similar to yours save for the lightbar/push bar. what did you make the pushbar out of?

I only got 3 police car.

(pictures are thumnails)

2 UT: Florida Highway Patrol & Metro Dade Florida



1 Maisto: NYPD



.... but I changed the rear light panel because the one that comes originaly is all red plastic...which look UGLY and non-realistic, so I took the rear panel of a Maisto Impala SS to replace it and make it look like the real thing:
