It had a pretty big fan base and following, and did well in the ratings. I don't see it, but never say never I guess. I would enjoy seeing Cady as sheriff now. Time to start on Vic's Tahoe next.

I love it.  You really knocked it out of the park. 

I hope we get a couple more seasons out of Longmire.  But that county has to be one of the most dangerous in the country.

Just finished this up. Its Branch's Charger from season 2 of Longmire. Its a basic FRR/MotorMax Charger. I drilled out the spotlight hole, and two holes on the trunk lid. I added a spotlight from an FRR Ford, and two custom made antenna's to the trunk lid. I took the computer out of the interior. I added an LED rack to the front headliner, and two LED strips that I made to the rear deck. I added mirror decals and the Absaroka County Sheriff decals. License plates are done on photo paper.
Nice job.  Lots of work into this one.

Is this the Luxury models 1/43 version?

Excellent model. Very well done. Thank you for sharing it here.
Decals were self made, I used two layers of white decals for the letterings and the body stripes. The gold letterings were done using two layers, one layer of gold only and one layer of black outlines. The side panel lights were from FRR Tahoes.
The model was first stripped, then the door trims were sanded down. The front doors were attached to the body permanently using body filler and The Original Super Glue. The holes on the roof for the roof rack was filled using body filler. Holes were drilled for the antennae.

It looks great from my neighborhood!  I do feel your pain.  Been there, done that, could sell t-shirts!

I feel your pain.  Remember the plastic model Crown Vic kits from Lindberg?  I threw away one or two of those after paint misfortunes.  It happens to the best of us but it's still fun.  ;)

Yes experimentation is fun.  I have found if I try to push through a model it almost always ends up worse.  One of my goals now is to hit the box(es) of unfinished models and either finish them or can them altogether.  Some have been off the bench for so long that they just are not up to snuff.  But modleing is always better than working.
