Model Police

February 4, 2014 · in Automotive · 11 · 1.5K

This was a jab at some of my fellow IPMS members and it worked.

The kit is a Revell Tom Daniels show car in 1/24 scale which is currently available. The figures are all pre-painted & the two on the truck came with the kit. All decals came with the kit except the "Model Police" which are dry transfer letters that came from the railroad guys side of the hobby shop. The paint is rattle can Tamiya Mica Blue with a brush coat of future adding to the gloss. The black texture was done on the fabric by laying on a heavy coat of auto primer & quickly pressing a paper towel to it to give it texture. Then it was painted with a semi gloss black. All of the gold trim plastic came in the kit.
