Like most modern N scale modelers I really want a die cast North American modern police car. This does not seem to be likely any time soon. As a Canadian modeler I’d want this in RCMP colours. With the RCMP licensing their logo this will probably never be likely. I saw a YouTube video of a ghost car that was fantastic but there was nothing as far as a regular cruiser. So, after searching the comments of dozens on N Scale sites I started with a pair of Atlas white Ford Taurus cars. Not quite a Crown Victoria but… it’s N scale.
Next after looking at all the light bars I could source (or make) the Micro Metals 79 Chevy Impala Fire Chief seemed the best fit.
I then painted one of the lights blue on each light bar. [I actually put a new coat on the blue after this photo was taken]
On one of my usual random searches of the internet I saw Brian from Lakeshore Model Trains had just completed an American version of what I was trying to accomplish. See the link for the great job he did.
The decals I knew I was going to have to create but I hoped I would not have to do them from scratch.
