I enjoyed watching this show as a kid, so this kit is on my list to buy some day.

Looking forward to seeing how yours turns out.

Thank you Shawn!

More progress on the Striped Tomato.  I got the glass, interior, and the chassis all joined together.  The rear panel and the mirrors have been assembled are ready for installation.  I removed the clips and the rear seems a tad too high after I set the model down on all fours.  So much for careful measuring!  I'll leave it as is.

More to come...

I got some of the chrome attached and the Striped Tomato is up on four wheels.  Next up are the decals which some say are problematic.  The rear panel doesn't fit perfectly as it needs a slight bend.  I'm hoping to avoid having to bend it, but that may happen.

More to come...

Thank you Carl!

I have finished my Starsky & Hutch Ford Torino and it is posted in Under Glass.  I would like to thank all those who have taken the time to view and to comment on my WIP.
