At first, I thought those girls looked like they may have been repainted Dirty Pair figures.
I also noticed you seem to have parts from one of the Mad Police, Destroyer models on that Camaro; the driver, headlight grills and Browning .50 cal Machine gun.
I have set of those wheel covers you used on the front wheels, not sure what they're from. I got them in some parts someone gave me.

The only 1:25 Dirty Pair figures I ever saw were a pair I made, again from Revell truckers. They were last seen in the back of an orange/gold candy custom Galaxy. That was also one of the models I got rid of. I can only find large figures by googling.
The Mad Police Interceptor shared the same extra parts sprue as the Destroyer. I had the interceptor, so these were left over parts from that kit. I stuck the supercharger on the hood of my real car.
The .50 cal I cast myself from resin. I'm pretty sure the original from an MPC jeep.
I'm pretty sure the wheel covers came from Revell #7129 (1986) Pontiac Firebird Pro Street Machine. They would be molded in orange, if they are. http://modelle.kaefergarage.de/315z.jpg
The rear portion of this car (2nd rear wheel back) is one of these Firebirds. The Camaro and Firebird were essentially the same model, with a few body changes.

This is Double Crossed from the late 80's. She wasn't a show winner at this point. I took her home and rebuilt her after hearing a judge tell another fellow why his model didn't win. What he said applied to my model too. It was ALL technical. They judged by starting with 100 points, then removed one per ejector mark, injector mark, seam, flash, paint fault (hard to judge on a road warrior!) etc. So I fixed what I could, and hid what I couldn't. The easiest way to deal with the engine was to glue the hood shut!

A Revell Transam converted to a Mad Max/ Mad Police style police car. It's driver was a corrupt cop. I considered this to be one of my lesser models, as is evidenced by that fact that I can only find this photo of it, and the model itself is long gone.

This thing is made mostly of heavy copper wire pulled out of a WW2 radar chassis, and the mesh out of old vaccum tubes pulled from TVs dumped on the side of the road.
I made it during lunch breaks at work in 1986.

I think the old version of double crossed looks pretty good, the wind screen looks kinda akward, though.

I have that same Revell Trans-Am, It's a re-issue I used to make a look-alike of the Mad Police Interceptor, cause I gave up ever finding them on ebay, and now I couldn't afford it. The Destroyer was the only one that showed up with any frequency, and I havn't seen any Mad Police in years. Do you have any pics of your Interceptor?

I like the use of scavenged parts on that buggy. I need to get some mesh like that. I've used window screen in the past, but it looks too much like, um, window screen. Whats the base of that car? Looks like a Revell big block Ford engine with that blower.

Yes, the windscreen sits way too high. The car's biggest problems were technical, and I felt like taking it to the next level. I sketched out an improvement, and when I do that, things actually happen!

I have seen your Trans-Am and Destroyer. Nicely done. I got my interceptor when they first came out here. I was never particularly happy with it, and to that end, it went into the parts box - which I then sold. I do have some old photos about. Tracking them down is proving a challenge. I suspect some of the photos are on 35mm slides!

The engine (Ford 427) in that buggy is from the Revell 51 Henry J "Saints", as are the rear wheels.

Mad Police Interceptor. This model is long gone. It took me days to even find any photos of it, and they were on slides.
