Congrats on just getting it done, plus a nice paint job - fitting the cab/hood/fenders is tricky; if you channel the cab over the fender unit about 1/16, everything lines up. Of course then the door panel bottoms interfere with the floor, so more trimming... At least the sum of the parts has a very accurate look to it like most of the other Monogram 1/24 kits of the period.
If it comes to that I will; I'll have to do that anyway on the stock tires on my '61 Bonneville. I was just hoping someone had a set from the reissued '36 Ford or '37 Chevy, or whatever other kits AMT puts them into, that they weren't using. Sledsel, sorry for the delay in getting back to you - are the Revell '49 Merc tires the same as what's in the '50 Olds? If so let me check them for fit on the Stude wheels and if they fit I'll trade you for them. Thanks!
Hope they do the A990 first - really want to build the Chicago police car from Cooley High without having to do another roof transplant. Maybe a longshot, but how about adding a photoetch grille and wheel spokes?
