Hello,
...And now for something completely different!
As much as I like the Martini livery on the Lancia 037, I got a little bit tired of it and started wondering what it would look like with a different paintscheme.
I then saw the ABC Hobby police lights and the idea of a futuristic police car started growing on me.
It took me a long time to finish this build, mainly because I couldn't properly work with styrene until recently. But when I started working on the flares and louvers, things went on pretty fast.
I had the paintscheme in mind for quite a long time, and for those of you familiar with the Gundam mechas, you'll probably recognise the colors of the RX-178 Titan.
A cool feature on this car, and it is a first for me, is the invisible bodyposts thanks to simple magnets. It is very strong (I can hold the car by the shell without any risks of the chassis falling), and it takes litterally one second to attach/remove the shell.
Now that this one is done, I think it's time for me to start working on a more serious 037 Stradale.
Enjoy!

I like this a lot!! Love the Gundam reference! Seems to be missing some weapons though. Perhaps a hyper bazooka or a vulcan pod. Nice work!!

Thanks!@Darth D: I had initially planned to put a big cannon on the hood but when I mocked it up, it was a bit ridiculous, so I left it out...
