Hi everyone,
Here are some photo's on my build of the XB Interceptor, it was a resin curb side kit so I replaced the chassis and engine bay with a old Mustang kit I had and a resin Cleveland motor & 9" diff.
The sign was a screen shot from the movie square up in Photoshop and printed onto adhesive vinyl and laminated onto a piece of aluminium from the large coffee cans you get.

I like you chassis weathering which is probably how it really looked.
it looks even better in a diorama.

Great job wish I had bought some of these kits years ago before I got interested in modelling again

Do people scan old pieces and share for 3d printing? I'm guessing for some parts you'd need an especially good 3d printer, or have someone else do it, and probably also not really legal although that's also probably a weird space since it's a pretty new thing, but it seems like something people would do. Like a homegrown replacement parts community.

the problem with 1/24 scale models is they are just a bit too big for most 3D printer decks, so they can only be done on big expensive machines.

Artemis, if you want one now, thepartsbox.com have a police interceptor kit you might like.
