I took a little break from the Crown Vic's and Chargers to make this piece.  It started out at the "Butter Bro's" milk truck from American Heritage (Diecast Direct).  It's 1/43 scale, and a very detailed truck with opening doors.  I removed the tampo graphics and added the vintage siren, roof light, and rear amber light.  The Civil Defense decals are from InQuarters fire detail sheet.

Another class act Troy. I am really looking forward to what you will be producing with the upcoming Diplomat, Tahoe and Impala.

Looks great Troy. Nice model to improve with FR parts. Looks like the base model has been improved since first issued years ago.  I made a couple several years ago as a retirement gag gift. Except for mine, this is only the second time I've seen this model converted. Too bad, as quite a few police agencies used these vehicles as utility and equipment haulers. And its a nice little model.

Both models look great! I am pretty sure the FL is a Road Chanmps base while Troys is a FRR model, which is from all new tooling from what I understand from FRR. Cool stuff...
