I just finished this build up today of the Revell 1950 Olds 88 Club Coupe. A very nice model to build with no issues to speak of. I wasn't real fussy about the wide whitewall tire decal but managed after several coats of decal set to get it to lay down over the tire. Parts fit together very well and the model has nice details to it. I painted this one in Model Master "Phoenician Yellow" which is a very close match to the factory colour "Nankeen Cream". Have a look and see what you think and thanks for checking it out.

Nice clean build. Like the color choice. Are those the kit whitewalls?

Beautifully done! I'm assuming this a completely box stock build up executed at a very high level of fit and additional detail. The rear 3/4 view shows just what a fine kit this is when constructed to this standard, despite concerns some may have had about the decal white walls and trim bits. The wonderful period color choice shows it off to maximum advantage!
