Sorry Brad I missed this post. Yes I did do them.

The police car had a dodgey wheel so I decided to attempt my first ever conversion. I just used some green HUMBROL paint. Also had some vinyl lettering I bought off eBay and just stuck MP on the bonnet and it turned out pretty good even if I do say so myself. 8-)

I found a baby blue version of the Cessna Caravan in the street that was in someone's throwout pile. I brought it home with me and painted it green too and then put some transfers on it. :)

Those pictures so remind me of a show that had little green army men that kept growing in numbers out on a farm until one night a full blown war started out in the barn, for the life of me I can not find a link to it, I think it was a twilight show, other shows come up when you do a search but it was a great episode.

I have searched and searched for this episode, I have found Army Men movies with the little green army men in it, but not the one I am looking for, if I do find it I will post a link, the little green army men come to life at night, the dad in the show is back from vietnam and when he see`s them growing in numbers he wants to know were his son is getting them, end of the day what ends up happening is the dad takes them on a gets his ass kicked.

Siro i know how infuriating that can be. I recall distinctly an 80's US comedy show set in San Francisco, where the main character drove a Nash Metropolitan. Searched high and low - never found a single reference.
