Hello,

I'm restoring a 1989 Police Force and I've come to the conclusion that my broken Police Headquarters (JAIL) plastic can't be replaced.
It's not part of the CPR set and no one seems to have any to sell. And they all seem like they got broken over the years.
So...I'm working on recreating it.
This may take some time, but I wanted to see how much interest there would be from others if I was to make multiples.
My goal would be to have it look identical to the original.
Currently I'm researching materials and methods to make it happen.
I have a buddy who is a professional artist who is willing to recreate the artwork from scans and pictures.
After paying for the artist, the decals, the plastics, etc (plus and the other unknowns)...I'm not sure what the cost may end up being, but I'd think maybe around $125? More or less? There are lots of unknowns right now.
Who is interested in obtaining one when/if I do this?
Comment here and when I get closer I'll update the group on my progress.

Here's a Bad Cats Seafood Wheel plastic I "made"...meaning...I worked out all the details and had everything needed to make it. Then I assembled it.
I'll so something similar with the Police Headquarters.

I will talk with CPR about getting those made ... as we want them to color match to the rest of the plastics ...

That would be wonderful if CPR could do this.
I'm in the middle of a restoration for a customer...and including the broken one I have, just isn't an option.

Thanks

i'm interested in any police force plastics being made. My jail isn't really in bad shape but the plastics for this game seem hard to come by so if someone is going to make one i'd be interested in getting one as well.

My idea of making these is dead...for I finally found a replacement.
Hopefully CPR adds this to their plastics set...or makes it available separately.
