Used inaccurate Bill Bozo decals and dupli color Chrysler silver to rework this die cast Dodge into a Ohio State Patrol car.

Stars at night. You see them due to the light traveling from them. What you see is the stars past. If you are seeing a star that's 6,000 yrs ago. Imagine somebody on that star looking at us. They'd be seeing us as 6,000 yrs ago. Which of those two is now?

Nice looking ride.

So, what's wrong with the Bozo decals? I just got a sheet of them.

The 'state trooper' in the reflective stripe is to small, the numbers are not correct, should have outline
need to update license plate with 'ace' and now OSP has car number in plates.

Accuracy is sometimes hard to duplicate with models. However I think that the diecast model rework is impressive. Well done.

Cheers from Robbo.
If it's not broken, then don't try to fix it. If it is broken then only one tool and aids are required: A hammer if it's tight and Blu-Tack if it's loose.
