1/43 Greenlight Maryland SP - 1973 Ford Torino

Post by M1968Q » Mon Jan 01, 2018 2:57 pm

Something a little different - 1/43 Maryland SP 1973 Ford Torino. Base model is Greenlight’s “Big Lebowski” car which I stripped and removed all of the higher level trim off of. Decals by InQuarters Decals, antenna & beacon light by First Response, hubcaps created from nailheads, and paint from Duplicolor. MD didn’t buy Torinos until 74, but the 73 is close so I gave it a go.

Looks sharp. The old cars really had some style back then.

Thanks for sharing

I've always liked the tan MSP cars.

Nice looking model. I was never a fan of this color or the tan Maryland used after. I'm glad they went back to the olive green and black.

Personally, I think that particular Ford model is butt-ugly. I have to say though, as usual, Mr. Quinn perfected it and replicated its ugliness quite well!

LOL - as a "Pinto-man" you're not really in a position to talk. :) :) But thanks Mark!
