It started life as a NY taxi cab from UT Models..I would like to challenge any models or other die-casts
'96 Chevy Caprice Police Car
I started with UT Models '96 Chevy Caprice taxi cab.Then I stripped the car and filled in the door moldings on both front doors and put a hole in the rear quarter for the police antenna,then I went out and found the closest shade I could find that matched Michigan State Trooper blue.The chassis was primed and then I painted the frame gloss black and painted the exhaust steel and aluminum.The interior was painted flat sea blue and used light from my parts box and put them on the rear packing shelf.I used the police equipment from the Linburgh 1:20 scale Jeep Grand Cherokee kit and applied it to the Caprice.The decals are from the same kit.I used Bare Metal Foil around the window trim.I made the licence plates with Testors decal paper and my inkjet printer.
