Here's another model I got done recently.  It is a MACH 5 1950 Oldsmobile from REVELL with Polar Lights decals.  The hood ornament is the homing bird from the Polar Lights kit.  I like the models I do to have that Rat Rod or lived in look.  This is my idea of the perfect MACH 5.  Go Speed Racer Go!

I really like this one. Folks are building phantoms all the time. Why not a phantom Mach 5? Well done.

That is pretty cool. Sure is an original idea. What part of Michigan are you from?

Silly Mark, that's not his father's Oldsmobile! :P

Love how this one looks.

Wow, that's cooler than cool- it's freakin' neat!!!  Not just another cookie-cutter '50 Olds custom or hot rod- why can't I think of things like that to build?

With the dirt, rust and brush paint theme, it looks like it could be a demo derby car!

Thanks for the kind words and thanks for looking.  I am from Battle Creek, MI by the way and if you couldn't tell, love Speed Racer.
