David Starsky's 1976 Ford Gran Torino.


Recommended Posts

Finished with the Revell Starsky and Hutch Ford Gran Torino. Color is Rustoleum Gloss Apple Red and the interior is Rustoleum Satin Canyon Black. All the parts fit very well and the kit went together pretty easily. I was so focused on getting the stripes even near the door jam that I didn't notice they were too high toward the front of the car. I feel like I could've and should've done better, but overall am happy with the result. Thanks for looking.

Looks great ! I never had luck with that paint. Maybe I will give it another try.

Thanks! Their primers go on really nice for me, but the two colors I've used on bodies did not go on the smoothest, nor did the gloss clear. I had to really wet-sand and buff the snot out of them to get them smooth. Credit where it's due though, the paint and clear is pretty tough

Looks great! Is that the molded color or did you paint it?

Thanks! While it does come molded in red and black, I did paint it using Rustoleum Flat White Primer, Rustoleum Gloss Apple Red, and Rustoleum Gloss Clear.
