How could a Tamiya German Police Monster Truck look like?

Kindly provided by Kai from RC Channel Blog

My son desperately wants an R/C monster truck for his birthday and he is a big police fan. Since there is nothing suitable from Tamiya, I created one myself! It’s based on the Twin Detonator (#58309). Fortunately I got a used vehicle in pretty bad condition. The restoration took some time and effort, but it was fully worth it!
