In Topic: Revells 1984 Olds 442

Today, 02:51 AM

Olds didn't change the car to front wheel drive.They added a new line-the Cutlass Calais(the "N" body).The "G" body Cutlass-the rear drive car-lasted until 1988.

So they had three Cutlasses- the Ciera,the Calais,and the (rear drive) Cutlass.

Since you're into the tuner type of cars go for Tamiya,Aoshima,and Hasegawa kits.Not only are they the subject you like they're easier to assemble than an AMT, Revell,or Monogram kit.Ninety percent of the work in the foreign kits is the painting of them.

Well,it was last Saturday but I bought a Revell Sox and Martin 'Cuda,the Revell Mustang LX drag car,a Tamiya Spriner Trueno,and an Aoshima Datsun low rider pickup.How's that for an eclectic mix?

In Topic: Give me some advice on decals

Don't use decal softener unless absolutely necessary(and most of the time it's really not necessary).Compound curves are the most problematic but can be conquered by cutting darts in the decal or cutting it into pieces.

Score it as cheap as you can if you REALLY want one.The chassis design is compromised,the motor is slow,and the guide flag is too far back.The second series has been modified with,I believe, different wheel bushings and some other things( but not a relocated guide flag).
