This was my first resin kit and it wasn't as different as I thought it would be . It's from Motor City Resins and is a nice kit .
The yellow is Krylon Bright Idea and the stripe is Tamiya TS - 31 Bright Orange . I modified the chassis from the Monogram '70 Torino GT and the engine is the 351C from the Revell Mach I kit with home made valve covers .
The only real problem I had was with the windshield . I pre - fit everything and it was just fine . Then during the final assembly it wasn't even close to fitting ! After several attempts I was just making things worse so it got glued in like it was .
Thanks for looking !

Very cool Ranchero! B) One of the best year models of Torino & Ranchero. Very beautiful build too, colors fit nicely together and like the details. Over all very nice build.
