Cherry 'T' street rod
The 2018 Toronto Model Car Contest has a theme of '"T's and A's", as in Ford Model T and Ford Model A based models.  I have
always loved the look of short wheelbase Model 'T' street rods.  This model was based on a re-issue of the original Monogram
Little 'T', which came out in the 1964 (according to Scalemates website).  There was extensive detailing done on the model, which
is described in the build article. I was very pleased when the model took the theme award at the show.
