I was in a rut, avoiding my workbench for a few weeks, because I didn't want to do the next build on my list (an HO scale apartment building that I had been picking at on and off for 6 years so far.) Long days at work and 3 kids at home, so by 9PM when "me time" started, I had been wiped out. The basement was too cold, etc...
So I'm jumping ahead to this one for a fresh take!
I pulled out the old kit-- I had taken the MPC tokens off the box, but never entered the contest to win a new 1984 Corvette!
The windows have a gross brown film on them-- should probably be scrubbed and disinfected. The kit contains Knight Rider-specific parts and stock Pontiac parts. I didn't find the actual steering wheel.
Having picked up this hobby from my dad, I have our combined spare parts collection to root through. Here are some gems I might use on this...
I did find a 1/25 pump shotgun from a police car kit.
I have to go back and look at some Rat Rod pictures again, to hone my vision of how this will look. Brown primer, how much chrome? I'm envisioning truck wheels-- which old kit will I steal them from?, beefy push-bar on the front, armor plates around the body.
I'm keyed up!
Randy and Littorio, I made a Mad Max/ post-apocalyptic police car back a few years ago too. I guess every modeler is inspired by those movies. It's at the bottom of a box in the garage, so no photos just yet.
