Specifically designed to accurately replicate their full size police spec counterparts, you won’t find roof racks, running boards and other features all too common on civilian models here. First Response Replicas sourced the basic Diplomat tooling from MotorMax then created all new tooling’s to replicate authentic vehicle parts such as mirrors, wheels with actual slots, individual “dog dish” hubcaps and authentic looking police tires. All topped off by no less than a photo etched hood ornament. An extensive assortment of 1980’s police equipment was also tooled enabling First Response to replicate each department as accurate as possible.
Tahoe’s representing the Georgia and Missouri State Patrols, Louisiana, Maryland and Massachusetts State Police were released initially with approximately 30 additional planned releases. Upon request of the Louisiana State Police, their Tahoe features the current 75th Anniversary license plate. The West Virginia State Police Impala features the correct color gold on the roof that is a specially mix color used only by the department. Other Impala releases included the Illinois State Police and Baltimore, Maryland Police with more planned.
Every First Response Replica police model features extensively researched colors, markings and equipment specific to each department’s cruisers. The Diplomat model has been a big hit with police collectors and model builders alike since very little from this era exists. Coming in at under $30.00 each their price points are well worth the investment.
