This new kit by Revell is real nice. No major issues, goes together well. Now onto the new 57 Ford kit...

Nice! So far of all the ones I've seen, this is my favorite build from the '50 Olds kit.

I'm very much OK with building "phantom" cars if they look right. I'm not saying your Olds is a phantom. But, if it is, it's cool. I'm in the planning stages of building 5 Minnesota Highway Patrol cars. None of which will be 100% correct. I have had the decals made, so I'm almost ready to go. I plan doing Revell's '57 Ford Custom and '90 Mustang LX, AMT's '70 Galaxie, MPC's Rosco's Sheriffs Dodge, and JoHan's '68 Plymouth as MN Highway/State Patrol cars. The '57 will be incorrect because I'm going paint it like the '58 cars. 1958 was the first year the Minesota cars were paint Maroon. Which is still used to this day. The others? Minnesota drove '67 Plymouths and not '68s. '69 Fords, rather than '70s. Late 70's were Plymouth Furys, rather than Dodge Monacos. And Minnesota did run Mustangs, but they were unmarked cars. Were I'll be building mine as a marked car. None of the cars will be right. But, so what. Close enough. And I'll be happy.

Great model! Looks like it could run down a few 'shiners in the moonlight
