2 Muscle Cars, 2 Totally different looks. The Revell Torino was painted Tamiya Bright Yellow with black interior and the Monogram GTX was painted Model Car World Chrysler Metalic Maroon with Black interior.
Which one do you like better? I'm a Ford guy.

I like the Torino myself.

 

It isn't a car we see to often anymore.

Thank you,
It's a factory color for Chryler 1970, but I don't know if it was on the GTX. I just thought it was a great color for this car.

It's a tough one, I love both the Torino and GTX...but I'm gonna have to say the GTX wins by a hair. It looks really, really good in that color!

I like the GTX. Far as the color goes, it wasn't offered on the GTX, nor was a silver side stripe. But seeing it here, looks like they should of !!!

I like the Torino. I used to own a '71 GT that was green, and someone had painted a black "Starsky & Hutch" stripe on it Where did you get the tailights and grill for it?

I like both the same.  If I have to pick one, a slight edge to the GTX.  Great work!

The photo etched grill and tail light grill are from Mini Exotics. 

Thanks for looking.

Both of them look amazing, also being a Mopar fan I like the GTX just a little more. You did an excellent job on both of them, very clean builds. Keep up the great work! :)
