Police muscle car kits

Hi,
for some time I've been stashing up on a small collection of police "muscle cars". To date I've got;
Fujimi Lamborghini Polizia
AMT Chevy Camaro
Lindberg Dodge Charger

Do you guys know of any other interesting kits in the segment? I'm not that interested in the older american Ford cars (Crown Victoria/Galaxy etc). Could be interested in odd kits though, like the Hasegawa Beetle.

Any hints are most appreciated.

I would suggest a Countach police version, as seen in some cannonball movies, or the bmw m5 team polizei, but that's an e39.

Otherwise Italian carabinieri lotus evora, or also try search Dubai police super cars, they have plenty.

Also the old sweet 911 from German polizei can be cool despite the ugly color.

My personal best, loving classics, would be the truly operative black Ferrari from Commissario Spatafora...

Now check google :)..

This 1973 Mustang Mach 1 was used as a pursuit vehicle in the Tochigi Prefecture, just north of Tokyo.

Skyline and RX7? I think both Fujimi and Aoshima made them.

Thanks a lot guys. As I don't have the skills to make my own decals, it has to be an actual kit. Been looling for after market sheets flr the Dubai Aventador, that would have been an awesome addition, but no luck.

The Lotus Evora was a nice looking car Paolo, decals would be quite easy to make. But is there a kit to use as base?
The Mustang looks great as well but decals could be an issue.

There is already a very nicely 3D origin evora die cast in 1:24 with perfect Tampo decals my friend....

Ah, ok!But I'm looking for scale model kits to build myself. A bit more challenge to it than collecting die casts.

I know. Problem is those super exotics are not available in Modelling kit scale. Already the gallardo polizia is stuff from nearly 10 yrs ago.
Only ones should be really Dubai polisen ones...

also can be interesting (and much more modelling stimulative..:grinyes:) to make some cars taken by police to smugglers. There are platoons of those cars in the south of italy, usually stolen in the rich north,heavily armed and modified in south and used like contender vehicles together with stolen trucks full of...cigarettes ! (stricly no drugs..JUST cigarettes..)

When police is lucky to stop theme (mostly for mechanical failures, cause police has no weapons to stop theme, and in the past they seriously consider to use the italian Apache helicopter to shoot at them..) they re use for street pursiuit.
Not a movie, not a legend,nearly mad max..just chronical from south europe.., and fashinating ugly monsters.. :icon16:

Fujimi and Aoshima did decal sets for East and West Japan police departments, both also have accessory sets that included light bars, decals, etc. For the Tochigi Prefecture Mustang go with the Otaki/Arii Mustang.

Never heard of the Arii kits and as they seem to have a very sparse interior they are listed at some extreme prices on feebay. But got hold of a "cheaper" one, although ending at 50 usd incl shipping. It costs to stay on top!

Thanks for all your help with the decals/detail sets! Will have a look at the nsx and the rx7 as well!
