Album photo
Description: I built this model on commission for another Motortopia member. She saw my "Rockford Files" '77 Firebird esprit and wanted to buy it, but I didn't want to sell. Instead, I offered to build another one to her specifications, with colors she wanted instead of her having to settle for what I had on the "Rockford" car. This album will follows the build from start to finish.
