I won't be able to finish my build for this campaign. The Niagara Regional Police will be 1 cruiser short this year.

"Can someone post a link the the gallery I can't find it."

I am not sure who is in charge of AutoModeler to set up the gallery!



I didn't find a gallery either, let alone post photos on the first of May. I finished though.
I wasn't entirely satisfied with my effort. In hindsight, I should not have trusted my masking for the white stripe, since the decals were there to use, and I didn't. Also, the radio antenna is too thick-- model railroad handrail parts. And the thing is too staticky and keeps attracting dust!! And I really should tone down that iridescent blue interior color.

Regardless, here is my last efforts on it...

...realized I had put the windows on before I painted the inside flashers, so ripped the rear window out again...

antennas (antennae?) from thin wire, with soft copper wire wrapped around for a base spring. Held in place for drying with blue painters tape...

I'll take some better pictures outdoors, and if a gallery gets created, I'll put them there. Otherwise, poke around in my Flickr album to see them in a few days.
Cheers!!

This group build ended on May 1st. There is no gallery to post photos in and ribbons have not been awarded. Is there an admin person that can take car of this??

No gallery has been set up!
I will award ribbons as soon as Admin wakes up!
I still have my entry to finish decals!

Ha! Yes, get those decals on, Richard!
I cracked my car open again and repainted the interior with a more subtle blue-gray color, mixed from $0.79 craft paints. They dry to a dead flat too!
Final-final pics later today, then into that gallery, when it is ready.
Great fun, guys!

So the Group Build is over, and I didn't finish another one. Oh well! I have managed to get some more work done on Sheriff, though. Here is the completed dash with Best Model Car parts gauges & the radio from the Revell 1957 Ford Custom Police Car.
