Hi guys,
i'm working since some weeks on my NYPD ESU TRUCK in 1:18 scale and i will add a full light system.
I made all self and here you can see the 1st steps...........
This is not a fast work to do quickly bucks......
This is a long time work for weeks or month...
Let me know what you think about it....

Regards Mike @ www.ohiomike65.com

 the basis model from Maisto




cut the front and make a single cap



cut the frame and strech it some



make the back body





the top





the small parts



chrome foil for a better look



create the form for all the lights and extra parts







make the electric stuff (the work is more that s....)

Here you can see a 3mm LED and the mini SMD i'm using for the most lamps





here the roof lamps with a full working light system-you don't see any wires after this work!!!





the wires are thinn like a hair only-perfect if you don't will see them....



lights up......

Emergency Services does everything from SWAT to Rescue work in NYC.  They have an on-board generator on the big trucks that can power a city block, all types of long arms, body bunkers etc.  In addition, they have the jaws of life, cutting tools and the necessary equipment to do highrise rescues like rappelling gear.  I know there stuff I missed, but this gives you an idea of the varied job description necessary for an ESU officer.

Are you looking for general pics of the Lenco BearCat or specific ones of the NYPD? I have a couple nice ones of the Philly one from this summer.

From my understanding, there are 10 of these trucks positioned throughout the city.  ESU lost a lot of guys on 9/11 since one of their responsibilities is rescue.  I know a guy from Truck 3 who almost didn't make it that day.

They also carry an arsenal of weapons including sniping rifles, shotguns and assault rifles.  I believe they use the Ruger Mini-14.  I'm not an expert on this subject.  I'm sure there are other members of this forum who can give a better explanation of ESU and their mission statement.

I found this on E-bay about 6 years ago and never took it out unit today. It was issued by Road Champs as a Collectable, but the markings are from 1993 and not 1999 as posted. I'm sure it has some value because of this.

Confused as to why you are posting your Road Champs car info here..??  Huh
