.. all in good time Zpectre, but I'm pretty shure you mean the Coronet? ???





or do you mean the later '77/78 Monaco? Since we already have that:







but they all could use a rework now that I did better bumpers, lights and stuff .. pheeew :P

Another question is what might be your most favoured Sheriff Rosco car since ..
Quote from: Wikipedia (source)
His patrol car (in the first season a 1974 Dodge Monaco or a 1970 Dodge Polara (First 2 episodes), 1974-5 AMC Matador and 1976 Plymouth Fury. In later seasons a 1977 or 1978 Dodge Monaco or Plymouth Fury) which also serves as his daily driver except for a few episodes where he has other cars, such as a 1977 Pontiac Lemans in the 3rd season episode "To Catch a Duke" which he apparently saved his nickels and dimes for, as he claims. This car can routinely be seen parked outside the Police station in stock footage exterior shots for the rest of the series ..

Frank, you might want to do the Dodge Monaco too as it's the same car and also used as police on TV. :D

'75 Fury:



Nice decent scheme btw .. can't wait to see this on Sergi's Dolphin Valley ^-^



a frontal view of the two-door variant with Twinsonic lightbar but giving a good impression of the paint scheme:



the 'Double Dietz' lightbar is already prepared and ready for service:

Nice work once again! The car looks pretty badass, and I can't wait to see it in pursuit livery. :police:

Final correction of the rear bumper's outer edges, they were exceeding the body too much laterally ...

Car_test.zip is attached again .. meshload 548kB, polyload 3186 (most recent and odds-on final state ;))

I have now 'recessed' the taillights into the rear bumper so is now actual part of it (though I detached it again and merged to :OC part for proper ODL lighting) .. :)

last pic: seems the cooling device needs an overhaul .. a probable result of too many excessive test rides .. cough ;) :o

Ok, managed to close the gaps in the way I described (and left those holes for the light cones .. see 'new_front_panel.png') :)

Also made new exhausts in the way it can be seen on the real rearview pics, closer to the middle and cranked downwards ('new_exhaust_pipes.png')

Since it no longer has an internal Police light (which would disappear because of alpha channel transparency method ;)) I also tinted the windows again more and detached the side windows as :OT part so they can be hidden in menu, very useful for the few smokers that are still left .. =D

see attached pics of current state, I also added the car for testing (car_test.zip) without internal sounds .. fce meshload: 549kB, polyload: 3199

I will see what I can do about the layered taillights still, that's a reasonable objection Paul always had raised, if the bumper normals don't get messed up I will try to 'countersink' them into the rear bumper as a merged part so let's see what will become of it .. ^-^

thx Dark One, I already do have much fun being just at it, even more than on the '77 ^-^

@Rider: got an idea now .. I will seperate the base plate polies of that grey square behind the lenses and create new polies from the edges' verts to the body so I can fill the gaps around it while still leaving a rectangular gap for the lights =D

Sometimes you don't see the forest for the trees ::)

Frank, can you show wires on different angle, more like from centerline instead of side of the car, and grill hidden? I think that there should be no problem with doing correct polies for that part. However, it seems like some original polies around the area will need some work, too. It's always about additional work here and there, eh?  =D
