Now right back to it..... The front bumper is in-place, as well as the headlight bezels and grille sections, so checking the body to get it ready for everything that it will either be getting for details OR need painting and finish work.... Looks GREAT as-is so, I thought I'd get to drilling the holes for the roof strobe light. (assembly of the roof strobe was a bit of a challenge!) WOW does NOTHING to it fit right too! So I got the roof of the car drilled for mounting the Strobe light to it....

I sort of followed the kits indents from inside the car starting out with a really small drill bit and "step Drilling" up till the holes were 1. Centered side-to-side with the light bar, and 2. fit just tight enough a little pressure was added to the light bar to pull it down once glued and the roof would make that "pulling force" all by its own nature of the curvature of it. (to make the light bar seem somewhat "flat" and level on the roof, as it was slightly upwardly arched.)

Not to shabby! I'm pleased how that all turned out with a little bit of thought and some skill machine work. As I wasn't 100% sure that the holes dimpled inside the car was accurately placed for the light bar up top.... PLUS having to drill through a PERFECT finish and not ruin it was a concern too (I use ALL brand new drill bits for that very reason!) -Then being only used twice, put them back in there package! As the ones I have out thats been used, aren't "bad" I just wanted that sharp new edge to cut and not possibly mar that finish!
So with that, I'm gearing up and getting the gut fortitude to go about the BMF (I second guess myself on that stuff, I don't think I'm all that good at it) BUT, I also know, the more I use it, the better I'll get and lets face it, I got my share of models to add it too that are sitting and waiting to get that close to being finished so..... So then, BMF it is coming right up! -Stay Tuned! Comments always welcome, Thanks for looking!

So getting that inspiration up to do the BMF.....

WELL then.....

I got the BMF one the whole car, (took a bit over my night-owl ways) and got it all done! And once it was done, I added the light bar to the roof, to stay!

Not to bad!!! The light bar centered out well with how I drill the holes for mounting it....





I have to say, I'm surprised! That the BMF turned out as good as it did as I've said I don't think I'm all that good with it, BUT it did turn out pretty good on this one with very little error on my part, (It could be better if I had better prepped the body BEFORE I painted it), but thats my own fault from the very beginning, BUT thats OK as it really doesn't look all that bad! I am surprised! And pleased at the same time!
I left the rear bumper OFF the body till all the parts for the interior are in-place and the interior tub is in-place, so that when I go to put the frame under the body, (something's telling me) that I am gonna have an issue mounting the rear portion of the frame and to leave that rear bumper OFF the body, will grant me the space needed to get inside there, to add any type of "mount" to hold both the frame to the body and vice-versa.... As we ALL know this kits "fitting" issues, are horrific but the fitting of the frame is probably THEE WORST I've seen on ANY model so far! (I honestly do not believe the frame in this kit is actually "made" for this kit!) In fact, I think that single one frame is used for several other models as it signifies a section on the back of it to be removed for another model (I can't recall it right now as I am not close by the instructions sheet) BUT, I know its not just for this kit!
So I thought it be smart to leave the rear bumper off till I'm ready to mount the frame just in case I need to get in there to make some sort of mount to hold the body up off the frame a little to get that factory spacing for the wheels and wheel openings in the back as if mounted right out of the box, it look like a low-rider!
Thats it for now! More to come as I get things done! As always Comments always welcome, and I appreciate the following of my builds! ~ENJOY!

So I was procrastinatin' the BMF, and it turned out great, so once all that was done I got right into adding the window glass!!!! Just to get this body as close done as possible. As I have a few details to finish up for the interior OR that would have been added to the body too!
But the glass turned out great!

Windshield.

Drivers side rear window glass. (kinda hard to see its so clear!)

Rear window glass.

Passenger side rear window glass....
I'm pleased with everything on the body so far, considering the trouble I had with the white paint originally! This one is coming right along!!!! This is all I've gotten done on this one in the short time from my last post till now, But, more will come! Thanks for following along, comments appreciated & welcome, ENJOY!

Well every little bit counts, right? I got to looking at the interior to this car, a few things needed addressed, and added! In fact, what I had addressed was the cars interior from what I could see in different video clips there as we all know was several cars used to make the TV series, and I seen one car to have a gray interior, BUT found SEVERAL cars, to have the "common" tan interior, and when I began this model back when I returned to the hobby, I went with the gray interior that I had seen Granted, for all I know at this point (I can't find that video now as it was on youtube) and to that, I looked this all up in 2013!!! SO. and I wasn't "signed" for it to remember what video's I looked at! Dummy me! Thats a learned lesson I can tell ya!
ANYWAY, I choose the less common interior not knowing if that was in the '78 Dodge Monaco, or the other Dodge Police Interceptors that was used in filming the show! SO, that means its either right, or its wrong, either way its to late to go back and change it now! So onward I went! I did NOT add the lights in the back of the car, that was to be mounted to what looks ot be the tops of the back seat! Just, I didn't see them being there, and I plugged the holes and painted the plugs to match.
Onward again, in the interior, I seen a lot needed done when I first started this model, and lost a little interest due to the lack of correct details, but the one thing they should have included in the interior, more then all the guns they include (how many times did ya actually see ole Rosco, pull his pistol? OR have a long rifle, or even shot gun in his hand in the TV series!? WELL what they could have switched in interior details was the one thing he a LOT had with him in the car?
Anyone?
How about Flash!? Rosco's Dog? SURE enough, nothing in this kit, BUT Paul, helped me out with such a detail! I just didn't know one was made, and to that to be a Basset Hound too! SO I would up making a mold of this Dog to use in possibly other builds! Naturally, it in those builds will be painted differently but I made it as close as I could get it to look like Flash!


Sitting on a stick so that I can handle it for painting all the different colors seen here UN-painted, to show that its one of my resin castings! Anyone need one for their own Rosco's police Interceptor build, PM me on it! I have extras made up! (This mold is over a year old now I do believe) and I'm just now, getting around using one of them for myself!

Gotthe "white" on Flash's face.... A LONG ways to go and a LOT of color variations too.. and now its goes out the window! As the time passed, and the paint added, I FAILED to get pics of the stages..... So heres how that all turned out:

Painting the doggy, was fun, interesting, and in some cases a PIMA!!!! LOL BUT I managed to do it, and its not the best, but its also not the worst..... BUT, I am happy with it, plus, its on the inside of a car interior, so truly seeing it isn't going to show all its imperfections! However thats OK, I'm good with how it turned out!
Thats all for now! I am waiting for the body to dry as the interior is in it to stay, and will sit till I know I can handle it from all the clamps holding things together....
With that, I have some more details to get onto the frame while that dries anyway! Its getting close to the finished car! YAY! Thats for looking. following along, and as always Comments welcome and appreciated! ~ENJOY!

So as everyone has read, this weekend was kinda the plan to finish 2 models (or so I thought) till a rather large box was found at my door step on Saturday then the finishing of the 2 models went right out the wind! BUT that didn't stop me up to that point! LOL I worked like a madman on Thursday & Friday and Friday night till the wee hours of the morning on one of them! As the other hung to dry! The one to hang to dry, was this one! I got that interior mounted into the body, and "hung" it up out of the way overhead with several clamps on it.... So.... And this is how that all turned out:

Dang that looks GREAT! I'm so pleased with the looks and how well this model has came along, a far cry from what it once was!

Looks GREAT with no camera flash too! Which a lot of times I find the camera flash changes how things look, it could be that the car is while as well.... I'm not sure, I just know that it looks great under any lighting as you can see!

Other side looks great!


Couple shots of "Flash" through the window....with and without the flash of the camera! I'm pleased with this and all the efforts I've put into it! Not to shabby for a model that asks for a lot to be desired of within!
Over-all I'm happy with how this one has turned out!!!! Was trying kit, to say the very least, and I still have a little ways to go on it, but its coming along! (I question how the body is gonna set on the frame), and how the 2 sub-assemblies are going to mount together in the end, I remain optimistic on that one! (a lot of changes with body mounting was changed along the way in order to "seek" a factory height car), because as the kit was OOB it would have looked like a low-rider police car, as it was! The frame sat so high up in the body, that it was a 1/4 of a REAL inch up, which sunk the wheels into the wheel wells WAY TO FAR! so I had to bring the frame down out of the body, from the underside of the interior tub. Hopefully in the end, what I did works out for the best and not makes it impossible to mount and look right the frame to the body! -We'll see!
Thanks for following along, Stay tuned more to come as things get completed, or while they're being completed!!! ~Enjoy!

Thanks!!!! Yeah the Dog was a very interesting part to paint to look like "Flash" that Rosco had in the TV show and I thought it was a good detail to add to the build for the interior!

Well its been awhile since I've done an update on this build, so without further ado.... We'll get right to it huh? Yeah why not!
Well in the last update, was getting "Flash" painted, and in-place on the passenger seat, NOW that interior being in the body, I actually got the frame in-place too! Have a look:

As you can see by the pic, I got the A/C compressor line going in, with the pointed out fitting to it. It in this pic is just "posed" as I have to drill the hole and shape the line to the A/C compressor!


In these pics you can see that A/C line on-plce to stay!!!!!
Then I got to make and fit the line from the A/C compressor to the firewall, this line has a bit more to it then just a line and fitting... As you're about to see!

In-place, and to the firewall!

To the firewall it went! If you look close, just below the heater hose lines in the firewall to the heater core, you can see that black line going up into the lower portion of the heater core....
To this point, there is only one "wire" to place.... The Horn wire! And thats coming too!

Seen here, you notice the "gap" that needs sheet filing. This is the difference in how the frame fits the body! Its a quarter of an inch (ral 1:1 1/4 inch) off! Thats how far, I had to raise the body on the frame, to make the car sit factory height! As if I had monted it as the kit went together, it would have looked like a low rider!

Once I get the filler sheet in-place, and painted to match the car, it will look pretty good! I'm pleased so far, with the outcome of work done, I just have to slide the frame forward just a tad to get it to fit tightly to the back sides of the inner fenders and then glued to "stay"..... Thats to follow!

Frame is slide forward, to stay, and the Horn wire in-place, so now all that under the hood detail is DONE, all the wires in-place, all the hoses made and also in-place, and for pic sake, I put the Air Cleaner on just for kicks..... I have yet to make those fillers for the tops of the inner fenders, and then glued in-place and finish painted, I added a "lip" for the hood to sit on when its on as well, (just like the real 1:1 would have!) I've stopped on this for a short time as I have to figure out where the Antenna might be if only one and or find if there may have been 2 of them due to it being a Police Car, I want to be sure and add them as they would have been in the TV series!!!
Stay tuned, More will follow as things are done! The END is NEAR!!!!!
As always, comments welcome! ENJOY
