Just a regular Revell/Monogram kit that I built a few years ago.  It's a 1/24 Buick GSX 2 'n 1 that I built as a Stage 2 GSX.  The paint is 5 coats of Krylon yellow, wet sanded, polished, and buffed, no clear coat.  I added wiring on the engine, flocking, and bare metal foil.  The decals didn't just break like I've experienced before, but disintegrated in a few spots and gave me a hard time touching up.  I'm planning to build a 1987 GNX to go with it soon.

Great job Adam, that paint is beautiful! One of the most under-rated and unappreciated Muscle Cars out there, the Skylarks were some really mean machines!

Very nice Buick! One of the nicest cars Buick ever made, your version does it a justice. Very good paint job and nice detailing all over. I really like this one.

 

And hey- Can't wait to see the GNX. There can never be enough Grand Nationals.

Thanks for compliments everyone.  I really enjoy building models and sharing them is even more fun.
