Okay, so it's a little after the weekend, but while the Chrysler is stripping off (and probably about ready now), I've been poking at my Revell 1950 Olds. Not a bad kit overall. It will definitely look nice when it's put together.

 

The engine is almost ready for decaling

The lettering on the chassis was supposed to be gone. It is now! One more coat of primer, and this time, perhaps I'll use flat black instead of semi-gloss black. Oops.

Very cool Tom!  Nothing beats time spent modeling with a child or grand child. They love the attention and will remember it forever.  Enjoy it while you can, they grow up really fast.  I built with both my daughters and their models are in my showcase to this day.  They are 29 and 25 now, so it went way too fast.  Now I await grandchildren to spoil!

That's pretty cool, Tom. My kids weren't interested in model making but hoping the grand kids get the bug in a couple years.

 

I came across these decals ... 1/18 but may fit with a little trimming   http://liquidreality...e-az-dps-logos/

 

If not, I can print you some decals if we can find a good photo to go from. You might have some first hand cars there to take photos I could use.

Thanks Guys.  I lost the older one already, I figure I have a few years with this one,lol   Right now he wants to start them all.

 

I can get the decals from a guy in Utah but it's a 6 week deal ..... A VERY long time to a six year old :)

My daughter's GMC Van, the first build I COMPLETED in 20 years took a beating on the way back from NNL East this year and it's taken this long (from April) to put it back together. The body was epoxied back on today. Just the rear springs and the mirror and it can finally go to her hands!  :)

I was just happy to find my bench again this weekend.  For the past 18 months I've been gone 5 days of the week, and my work area had taken on a on junk drawer life of it's own.  Found that in tossing things out of the way to make way for more stuff that didn't belong there I had mixed a Ferrari and a Mustang parts into one box...Chaos!

 

A clean bench is a happy bench, and now that I'm home and have time to work on things without involving a tackle box, or worrying about little bits flying off into never again seen parts of the truck I can maybe use it again for what it's INTENDED.  18 months of dust, spiders and cobwebs also makes you pretty itchy when you clean it up... :unsure:
