    Robocop Ford Taurus
    Can any tell me what color the Taurus's were in the movie Robocop ? Was it a primer grey ??
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    In the movie the copcars were flat black including the snowflake pattern stock aluminum wheels that some of the movie cars had.

    Modelhaus Resin's 1981Chevy Impala sedan
    The January 99 issue of Scale Auto Enthusiast has a build up of the kit. It is called " The Flying Brick". The entire Revell chassis can be used with some trimming.

    ERTL's 1/18 scale diecast Bluesmobile
    I'm interested in doing a similar conversion of the BB car. However, I am having a hard time finding them in stores. It seems no one around is carrying them. Other than ebay, what major retail outlet or source might have them? I'm not a big fan of ebay and want to use them only as a last resort.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Ebay was where I bought this one. I have yet to see them in any store.

    Scratchbuilt 1995 Chevy Caprice
    The Impala SS kit and the 91 police car kit are very compatable and I believe the frames are the same. The grill and headlight parts from the police car kit fit right into the Impala SS body. The Impala SS kit has bucket seats with a console and a floor shift so I put the dash into the interior of the police car kit. You can often find both kits on e-bay for less than $20.

    Scratchbuilt 1995 Chevy Caprice
    This conversion was pretty simple. I used the snap-tite 1991 Caprice model and opened up the rear wheel wells, changed the shape of the rear quarter window with sheet plastic, filled the mounting hole in the door for the mirror and used the outside mirrors from a Ford Taurus kit to make the 1995 style corner-mount style. The wheels came from a company called All-American Models, but they're long gone. policecarmodels.com sells the same wheels now. The interior is still from the 1991 kit because the later ImpalaSS kit with the correct dash had not been released yet when I built this in 1995.

    I am not sure how Greg did this. But I have made 93-96 Caprices by taking using the body from a Revell Impala SS and using the grill and interior from a Revell Caprice police car kit. You can buy these wheels at

    Great job with this conversion from a '91 to a '95. Could you explain how you did this? Looks like a great new project to take on.

    ERTL's 1/18 scale diecast Bluesmobile
    I was wondering how you cleaned the chrome and the windows since the Bluesmobile comes with the dirt covered parts? Great job on this!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Thanks. The chrome was cleaned off by wiping lightly with NON-ACETONE nail polish remover on a Q-tip. The "dirt" is still on the glass. I have heard that oven cleaner or brake cleaner will remove the paint from clear plastic without clouding it up, but I want to experiment on scrap plastic first so I don't ruin the windows on this Monaco.

    Thanks again for the comment

    1960 Checker Marathon- Chicago PD
    I have always beena fan of the white over blue. the city here use to have that color, white roof, white front doors and blue rear doors, blue trunk, fenders, hood, etc. I thought it was a great car though they went to white for cost saving. model is beautiful.

    Can you explain to me the best way to make black background effects in the grill of this kit?
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    The easiest way to blacken a grille is to use a water-based flat black paint that is slightly watered down. Use your brush and just paint over the whole piece. The black paint will settle in the recessed areas. Then right away, use a just barely damp paper towel and gently wipe off the excess black from the parts that are supposed to stay silver. Be careful not to rub the chrome plated parts too hard or the plating will come right off. This same method was used on the wheel covers for a much more realistic appearance.

    It also works for the door and trunklid seams.

    STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    It may look stupid, but it's legit. The Chicago PD used Checker Marathon police sedans in 1960. Don't believe me? Take a look:

    1970 Ford Custom- IL State Police
    They looked like they could be from a Fred Cady kit. But out I checked into using some of those and they are too big. Do you know anybody that makes them?
