L/F: 1/24 US Police Decals and lights
« on: April 23, 2021, 03:16:05 am »
I am stalled in my Blue Lights build because I can't find any suitable markings or lights. The only sets I can find are in the States and postage costs are more than the Ford GT90 kit itself!

Does anyone have a good set of 1/24 or 1/25 decals for a US Police car, preferably a force that would do high speed chases?*

*The idea of a Railroad company police needing a pursuit car is funny  :lol:

Ideas or sources for low drag police lightbars are welcome too, unable to find any here. All I can find are the old fashioned dome lights.

As for agency decals, you'll probably want a state police agency like California Highway Patrol, NY State Police, etc.  I know NYSP used to run Camaros on NY Thruway as interceptors.

There's plenty of decals available on ebay at a reasonable cost:

I have a friend that models 1/24 & 1/25 cars, mostly older AMT & MPC kits. I'll see if he has anything useful.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Found an eclectic set from Two Bob's to commerate Texas not holding the 2020 IPMS nationals.

Relevant to your GT90 are several 1/24 - 1/25 Texas State Trooper decals,.  There are also some special Texas T-45 schemes in 1/48 and 1/72 and 1/1000 decals for the Constitution class starship USS Texas!

Your welcome too Nick.  Found it while looking for T-45 options, hopefully you'll both get some mileage out the set. :thumbsup:
