Looks good Frank and thanks for the compliment.
I am guessing that in no time we could be seeing a fleet of cruisers in front of a police station.
Or maybe the Police Chief's car, Fire Marshal's car, Mayor's car, Parks and Rec Warden's etc. etc. etc. (LOL).

That is awesome..I assume that's scroll/bandsaw work ? I'm just getting decent with a table saw.

Nice work Frank [thumb]
What timber did you use - not that it matters when painted.

Yes it its all poplar for the body. And it was cut out on the scroll saw. Was quite a challenge for me. If you've read Udie's router article, I plan to incorporate that technique in making my next one. Then I'll have super alignment on the body parts.  That was the most difficult part, getting the scroll saw cuts to match all 5 body parts. Took quite a bit of sanding after. But since I am pretty amateurish with the scroll saw, an expert could do much better. Thanks for the compliments.
