This is a 1:43 resin kit made by Tron. Very detailed kit but I had to make my own fender skirts. Fun build on a hard to find kit.

This is nice...

 

A lot of folks do not realize that it was the '49 olds that actually was the debut car for the Rocket 88 V-8 engine that so many drag racers and track racers coveted in those days....  just a few minor cosmetic differences between the 49 and 50..  split windscreen being just one....

 

Good work!!

 

Regards

Bill (Duntov)

You did a very nice job, and the detail is amazing for such a small scale.

I like that. Wonder how tough it would be to add the split windsheild to the Revel '50?

Shouldn't be too had, .030 sheet  styrene.  Very nice build.

I think pretty easy to add the split..... to make it a '49....(some VERY EARLY 50's were reputed to have that feature as well but I don't know for sure)... the main issue will be the difference in the tail lamp spears.... and mud splash.... the spears were different if I recall but would need to be researched for accuracy....  most everything else is pretty close....
