2006 Mustang 'Bullitt' version
Based on a Sketch Pad on Model Cars magazine, I thought I would do a Bullitt version of the Revell Mustang (from the classic
movie with Steve McQueen).  Ford actually produces a Bullitt version that is pretty close to what I did.  The paint is not near dark
enough for a true Bullitt version, but I just didn't want to strip and redo it.  The car is a curbside, with no engine and minimal
chassis detail.

Just as I was completing the model, Revell announced that they would be releasing a 2007 Bullitt Mustang and re-releasing the
original 1968 version that appeared in the movie - ah well.
