In Topic: AMT 1966 Olds 442?!

01 December 2010 - 01:36 PM

The most-recent issue of Muscle Car Review is chock-full of Oldsmobiles , with an obvious concentration on the beloved 4-4-2 .
Among the many 4-4-2's in the issue is the one which was featured on the original issue of this kit : The fire engine-esque red with a paintedwhite roof .

I saw that issue at Walmart-my heart skipped a beat! I had a blue convertible 1:1, black convertible top, Hurst 4 speed, tach on the console, 345 hp, manual steering and positrac, all on 14 inch wheels with wire wheel covers. All this at age 17, I paid $995 for it.

For wooden steering wheels I use - Tamiya Desert Yellow w/ a dark brown drybrushing (optional) followed by a coat of Tamiya Clear Orange.

Thanks will try its on a 65 Mustang.

Another option, tho more expensive, is to use BMF. It is very thin.

I'm just getting back into building, what is BMF. By the way I was Air Cav 2nd of the 8th Regiment a long time ago. Thanx Happy V Day.

Looks like Mike has some good advice. Always clear first, I've seen some guys get very good results with scotch tape and a coat of clear.

Thanks for the advice. Don't want to buy a Cadillac to paint a Pinto!
