I am not an Olds guy but; I bought one on a whim. Nice tooling minimal clean up on the body. I was missing a few trees on mine but, Revell send out my missing stuff promptly. I am using 57 Corvette wheels and tires with the "ARTERAKE" added Bob Dudek side pipes, Spots, shaved hood,trunk and doors. I don't like the way the fender trim spreads into the headlights so I shaved it back to looks like it stops on the fender. I also shaved off the taillight holes and will be using a small taillight on the rear. This will be a curbside car no motor. Thats it so far

No motor! Now that's a new take on something with a magnificent mill! I like those wheels and Dudek pipes are SO right! :)

Great start Irv. The whites and caps, lakes pipes, and "rake" look great. Nice touch on the taillights too.

update 11/5


I have the Olds in primer and I flaked the roof. I am not sure which way I am going. I am thinking black with silver flake roof with red and white tuck and roll

Loving your build more and more !

What kind --if any-- of detailling did you do to those gorgeous Corvette wheel covers ?
From what I can see , it looks like a red outline (emulating a red-painted wheel underneath ?) and some dull painted recesses .

Thanks !
