Thanks Rich - and you aren't kidding about the "challenges" of putting larger decals on this GL box. :)  Lots of cutting and fitting, and I think I might just grind everything off on the next one I do seeing as how you've recreated just about everything on your decal sheets.

Thanks Rich.  The markings came off very easily with minimal effort and zero damage to the paint.

Another ambitious project. The Greenlight ambulance box has so many doo dads sticking out of it, its hard to get a decal anywhere on it that you don't have to cut and fit. Great job.

Looks good Mike. How easy do the markings strip? I have been watching for a cheap one.

After a looooooong hiatus, InQuarters' new EMS sheet has finally given me the inspiration to get this one finished! Here's where I am so far in what has now become a Neonatal Ambulance for a private company. :)

Sometimes you need a quick project to get you back into the model building spirit. Such was the case today for me, as it's been some time since I've finished anything.  :D This model is from one of those European magazine series that pop up on E-bay quite a bit. While not a US prototype per se, it is of a US vehicle and it lends itself quite well to making an American looking ambulance. All I did with this one was remove the tampo printing with nail polish remover, add some appropriate InQuarters decals and FRR lights and siren, and then create some hubcaps from rhinestones and voila, instant ambulance. :) I've purchased a few of these from South America and will get more creative with paint on the next one. But for now, here's my simple re-do - the third photo shows the model as released.

Here is a side by side of the FRR Taurus SHO and Police Interceptor. Like I said, adding the spoiler to the deck lid, which was not necessary, cost extra. Go figure?

You hot the nail on the 2 important points. They don't have Dennis (and hit amazing dedication and attention to detail.) And they do not care. 

I was at their open house on Friday.  I asked them about the model and how it came about.  I wasn't confrontational at all.  They immediately got defensive and use the answer the department signed off on them.  Not their fault. 

I tried to engage them in talk about the models and offered some I thought would be a good fit I have photos of.  They really didn't seem interested.  Not one person had a business card and they simply said drop my ideas in the suggestion box.  I asked about a couple of the castings and didn't get any answers.  I got the hint and left.

It is a shame because they have a decent product and many can see the potential.  But as they say the devil is in the details.  I do have to say the prototypes of the Durango and wagons look pretty good.

Bringing this back to the top, as a reminder of how the FRR tooling was done. There is a separate inject for the SUV, and sedan. Then there is a shared inject for the wheels and antenna's with some extra parts for the 49 Ford. I doubt anyone at Greenlight has ever seen one of the raw injects. A subtle reminder, of how good we once had it.
