    Question Barricade License Plate?

    Hello everyone, I'm fresh new here, I just found out about this forum and I think there can't be a better place to ask this question.


    I've been looking for the answer for 2 weeks all over the web and I can't find any?


    You see, I'm a 1/18 diecast collector, I got 460 models at home, and for the last 2 years, I started to make TV & movie cars that don't exist in 1/18 scale.

    As for a Michael Bay related movie car, I just finished (a month ago) replicating the yellow Hummer H2 from "Bad Boys II".
    I made it like it is in it's final scene ... destroyed and battered on the Guantanamo site. If you guys wants to see it, I got a thread a a diecast forum collector with load of pictures of it (making of & final diorama). I would've post it right away but I don't know if it's ok to do so here.

    Up 'till now I've made ...

    - "Italian Job" ... all 3 Mini Coopers
    - "Magnum P.I." ... Ferrari 308
    - "Christine" ... '68 Dodge Charger
    - "Bad Boys II" ... Hummer H2


    Now I want to start my 7th custom car and my choice stopped on "Barricade" ... so here's my question.




    DOES ANYONE HAS A GOOD PICTURE OF BARRICADE'S REAR LICENSE PLATE IN THE MOVIE???

    ... or is anyone knows what from which state it is ???



    I know the plate is : I-4027E ... but I've been searching the entire US plates database form every US State and I can't find any that is a white plate, with the word STATE on the bottom! There's no good shot of it in the movie.

    I've read that it suppose to be California but no CA plates says STATE on the bottom line. Plus, it looks like the top line is an 8-letter word, I thought I was seeing DELAWARE but I check all the US plates data base and there is no plate in history that look even close to Barricade's, in any state.

    So the white plate goes :

    ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
    I-4027E
    S T A T E


    Any help please??? Thank you in advance!

    I slowed the BD down as much as possible and the top word is still blurred.

    I don't have a picture, but I know the plate reads:

    Oklahoma

    I 4027E

    State

    I just figured it was an in joke reference to someone's Alma Mater or something like that.


    Anyway, best of luck with the model. Would be cool to see the BB2 one.

    Thanks R-Type ... you're the second one who tells me that it's Oklahoma State ...

    I don't understand the reference you're talking about, but thanks for the info!


    BTW ... I just started gattering stuff to start my Barricade soon. I got the car, I will have all the stickers made out of 3M letterings soon. I want to finish my two motorcycles from the CHiP's tv showfirst, and then the Saleen will be up for the paint chamber ...

    R-Type is right. I already have "Chrisitine" (Fury) but I wanted to add Dennis' blue '68 Charger. If you google it, you'll find some images.


    An about the plate, looks like it is an Oklahoma plate, I finally found a picture of a plate that seems to be the same as Barricade's


    Thanks so much for the help!

    WOW! I forgot about this thread! Sorry for beeing so late to reply!


    Finally no! I didn't even start to work on it.

    I mean I got the plate done (at least), got all the decals with some made on reflective paper and I found a pushbar ...

    Also got all the electronics working all together : sirens, strobe lights rear and front plus the working lightbar.


    But I stopped there for now! While I was gathering stuff to make Barricade, I got myself tied on 4 other projects and I finished them.

    The thing is I can post the link to them, but now you have to register to see the threadof that diecast collector forum (it's free to register but still) ... here they are anyway :



    Project #9 & 10 : CHiP's ... TV Show twin Kawasaki motorcycles

    http://www.diecastxchange.com/forum1...ost__p__668826




    Project #11 : Batman - Dark Knight's Lamborghini Murciélago LP640

    http://www.diecastxchange.com/forum1...ost__p__684238




    Project #12 : Bad Boys 2 's silver Cadillac CTS ... in it's final look in the last scene

    I just didn't have time to work on the pictures of this one, will post them once it will be done




    Now that the summer's here, I won't get another one started until the colder days returns. But I know that PROJECT #13 will be from the vampire movie "DAYBREAKERS" ... the modified black 2004 Chrysler 300C.




    As you can see, I got a lot of projects on my work bench :


    - Bad Boys II ... Will Smith's (dark gray) Ferrari 575MM

    - Transformers I ... Mustang Saleen S281E Police "BARRICADE"

    - Miami Vice (tv) ... Tubb's (light blue) '63 Cadillac DeVille Convertible

    - Miami Vice (tv) ... Crockett's (black) Ferrari Daytona Spyder

    - Ghostbusters ... ECTO-1 (white) Cadillac Ambulance




    So stay tuned ... I won't forget about this thread anymore ... put a link on my desktop!
