...EL. Yup new model. This is something Ive been thinking about for a while. It is a revell 2-in-1 kit. Did some kit bashing(pieces from other kits) and custom made rear deck strobe lights. I still have to add the mirrors tho...





Its not perfect, I could have spent more than 3 1/2 hours. But its a good first in my book.

Did you have to find that online? I hardly ever see model kits in stores anymore, it's like they're afraid stupid kids in MA will eat the paint so we need to shelter them by banning them. haha

Nope. I got it at a local hobby shop. They have one SS model left. Its a different brand than the one I modded, and a few more bucks. I might snag it Very Happy

I have 2 of that same kit, one was exactly like that and the other came with the matchbox car as a bonus. They also make a "donk" 96 caprice kit that comes with the stupid ass 24" wheels, I took the tires and chucked them as put some torque thrusts from a 55 chevy kit on it instead. Haven't built one in a loooong time. Wanted to do one of every car I have owned. Chexk out Michaels (the craft and art store) all over NE. They still sell models. I picked up that donk kit from a big lots for $5 each last year. Good looking 9c1!!!

Thanks I was at Michaels last night and they have crap for models, I like going to small hobby stores and paying a little more for the best stuff. The spotlights are from a 96 crown vic model, the wheels were from a custom 2005 impala die cast i picked up a while ago and the strobes are actually wood. And I used actual car paint to spray it.

If your ever out in my area try hog heaven, they have a good selection. My father has like literally 1500 unbuilt model kits in his basement. He's a hoarder I think lmao! But only of models/diecast/matchbox and REAL cars, not trash like the ppl on tv.

I had that kit with the matchbox car, too. Smile I've got a stockpile of the SS models too. I musta built hundreds of kits when I was a kid! And even as recently as a couple years ago. I love building models. Some took days to do with all the painting and all... I have so many in the basement I still want to build! LOL! Smile

Nice Job, Brian. That looks great! Very Happy

I did another one. It not good at all( i repainted this one in 30 minutes and baked the paint with a space heater to crack the dash) Its sort of a "project car" influenced by that dumb kid that wanted $2500 for a no title Impala with a badly bent frame.


He still wont sell me the trink lid Shocked

Some updates for my other hobby.
I bought this 1/18 UT Impala SS from a member, a while ago, and decided to jazz it up today with some N.H. State Police decals from eBay. Antennas and dash and deck lights are in the mail...



I since customized these...

Bought these on ebay which ic nice because my '96 9C1 is from the LASD

Johnny Lightning has since added this fine example of a caprice wagon

Among MANY other die cast projects, Ive been taking orders from guys on my department to make these in all shapes and sizes. I even did one for a retirement pf 35 years. Heres a few...
