NYPD circa 1962

Postby GLMFAA1 on Thu Oct 29, 2015 11:36 pm

I have had a Revell Dodge for years, bought it to get the louvers set on the chrome tree (Mack cab need)
So I took it and mixed the JoHan parts and decals to make an NYPD car. I kept the 440 bling on it as I was not in the mood to dechrome all the lines especially when one side is engraved deeper than the other side. Ii always wanted to do a NYPD car and it is fictitious as the sirens didn't come into use until 63. Tamyia green, black and Walmart white can for the paint.

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?

I like it, that's one very nice looking law enforcement vehicle. Fictitious or not, it's how one wants the finished model to look like and putting to good use of parts available.

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.

I'm seeing the photos as too large, so I am reposting using photobucket

The car looks great.

As far as the photos I typically size mine to 800x600 for internet use, but here I have started to go with 600x450 or they won't fit in the frames as yours are doing.
