As I metioned in my intro- my favorite build so far is this one. 650 hours after I started I had an exact replica of a car I had never seen- my father's 1959 Oldsmobile Super 88 4dr HT. It was built from reference memories from my uncle, mother and after giving lies as the reason for pumping him for info- my father. It was a surprise gift from the family for his 65th birthday...he said it was EXACTLY like his old car- right down to the compass on the dash. I started with a Modelhaus resin 98 and a Revell 59 Chevy kit and winged it.

Thanks for the compliments- I appreciate them given the talent and skill displayed on this forum. Dad said that car was fast and ridiculously hard on fuel...he had to get rid of it when it got tired and consumed lots of oil. At the end the engine would nearly stall when it was running as he poured in the STP.

That's just awesome, wish you can find a way to post the pictures here instead of the link but at least they can be accessed. You are a terrific talent my friend!
