The Striped Tomato

This is my Revell Starsky & Hutch Ford Torino painted with Tamiya TS-49 Bright Red with a Tamiya TS-29 Semi Gloss Black interior.  Embossing powder for carpet, wheels from my parts box since I liked the offset on them better,  and a coiled cord for the Federal Signal Fireball emergency roof light.  I replace the suspension stubs with coiled springs for better realism.

Your build looks perfect. Having watched your build on the Bench I know the effort you put into this to be as accurate as possible. I know it was a TV/Movie car, but it's hard to think that the Writers ever thought a Red with White stripe car could have been taken seriously as an Under Cover PD car.

Super Sharp Mike! Any decal problems?

With the exception of the white stripe, the decals went on smoothly.  I found the white stripe a bear to deal with, getting them to line up correctly.  There are a couple of wrinkles that I am still trying to get out.

That's a beautiful build, but were you tempted to put NH plates on it?  :)

Actually, no I wasn't tempted to!  Sorry!
