Many of the same details of the “Hazzard” car have made it onto this pair of ’74 Dodge Monaco State Trooper cars, of course, and if you dig cop cars, you’re in luck. The models get it right, starting with the overall look – blocky, big, and rolling on dog-dish-capped wheels, with authentic markings for the Massachussetts State Police (in dark and light blue), and Illinois Troopers’ light tan. Like the Hazzard car, the build is very good, and so is the paint; the markings are neat tampos with crisp color separation and sharp resolution. Four opening doors, an opening trunk, and an opening hood are all hung pretty well on decent shut lines, and all of the chrome trim for the drip rails and window trim is done with silver paint – neat, if a little on the dull side. The big attraction, of course, is the cars’ overall displays, accented by stick-in whip antennas for the rear fenders that really seal the deal. Auto World has a couple more of these to choose from on their site, including a New York State Trooper and a California Highway Patrol unit. Arresting, indeed. – Joe Kelly, Jr.
