    Another day, another custom. At least that's how the pace seems to be these days.

    Fresh off the table is this RCMP Forensics vehicle. I've made a large number of standard RCMP patrol cars so I figured it was time to make something a little different. After all, all police departments need some sort of forensics unit (as unfortunate as their role might be). While browsing the internet, I stumbled upon this photo, which became the basis for my custom.

    Granted, I took a bit of creative liberty but that's where the fun is. Things don't need to be 100% accurate, but in my opinion it is a model that is representative of the real life thing.

    The basis for this custom was the Greenlight 2019 Silverado, which conveniently enough came in blank white. I missed out on them when they first appeared at Toys R Us' in the great white north, but the good thing is that they've been showing up at Walmarts. I've bought five so far...

    A bed cap was then added, then after came the decals (from Bilbozo, as usual).

    Enjoy the photos:

    Greenlight should hire you to do a series of Canadian emergency models for them! I always enjoy seeing your various creations. You always do such nice work with the detail trim and decals, etc.

      AWESOME! from one Canuck to another. From some one who knows and appreciates what an RCMP cruiser looks like. They cover the country like the dew!

        looks very sharp- as ugly as they might be, you can never have too many of those blank new silverados around these days...

            I live in the nation's capital. My car was was hit by an RCMP cruiser in front of Parliament Hill many years ago.

            That being said those customs look sweet!

              Hey! Another Canuck, I lived in Gloucester for a decade or so in the eighties and nineties, out by the Pineview Golf Course. Nice to see another Canadian here. I worked at the Bank of Canada building right across the street from Parliamant Hill and then at the Met Life building. I live in beautiful Prince Edward Island, if you ever get down this way, give me a call, buy you a Timmies or some thing. We can swap diecast stories.

                Timmies…I'll be right there! Oh wait, the border is still closed. Rats! We did have three Tim Horton's in ND at one time but all of them have closed. At least I can get Timmies coffee pods at one of the stores in Bismarck. And I have a church member who keeps me supplied with Buckley's...so I am good.

                      I think Timmies qualifies as an essential trip .

                          Fantastic! Good to see you here also! I'm using the free WiFi at a Timmies right now!
                          Glad you're enjoying P.E.I.

                            Moved back home 24 years ago, prior we had lived in Ottawa and Mississauga. My aging parents live a minute away from us, so we have family love in our lives and that is good. Job is good, lots of friends, YES life is good and very enjoyable.
