The Striped Tomato aka Revell's Starsky & Hutch Ford Torino

This is my Starsky & Hutch Ford Torino aka The Striped Tomato as it was referred to by Hutch in an episode of Starsky & Hutch.  It is painted with Tamiya TS-49 Bright Red with a Tamiya TS-29 Semi Gloss Black interior with embossing powder for carpet and a scratch-built radio antenna, wired engine, wheels from my parts box because I liked the offset better than the kit wheels.

Yes, the light came with the kit and it is a good representation of a Federal Signal Fireball.

The three piece stripe was somewhat of a bear to put on.  There are still a couple of small wrinkles that I am trying to get out.
