here is my take on the Revell 50 Olds. 

 

The top has been chopped 3 scale inches, car has been lowered 3 scale inches, dual french antennae added, trunk opening reshaped, trunk opened and hinged, throttle cable added, fuel line added from tank to fuel pump to carb, glass fuel filter, Detail Masters aluminum coil & bracket, FHP pre-wired 8 cylinder distributor, interior is 2 tone White & Brandywine

 

Scratchbuilt throttle linkage, throttle return spring, generator stand & aluminum muffler

 

Wheels and tires are from the kit.

 

Paint is House of Kolor Kandy Brandywine over Orion Silver b/c, upper area are HOK Snow White Pearl, Nason SelectClear

I need to say that this beautiful car won the Web Theme - Revell 1950 Oldsmobile Kit  award at NNL East this past Saturday!  Paul is such a humble guy he didn't even mention it!

Super nice Eye Candy!  Love all the little details and those colors are fantastic.  It's not surprising this is an award winning build.  Easy to see why.  Congrats sir on a beautiful model and on your award.

Thanks, Bruce.  Is it safe to assume that "this looks magic" is a good thing?
