  1. One of the first car kits I ever got was a 1969 Olds 442. I used the wrong glue and it came out OK, but a few parts fell off in the engine area. I also used the wrong paint by accident for the interior and it screwed things up too. I knew I'd like to get another at some point and when I got my gift card as a bonus at work; I went ahead and pulled the trigger on purchasing a new kit. The old kit was red, and I wanted to find another color to show off the W30 package under the hood. I remembered that when my dad and I first moved into my step-mom's house they had a few junk cars around the yard. Her ex was a mechanic and her family are pretty much hoarders; so there was a lot of cool stuff in the woods. Around my dad's shed was a green car hood that I'm pretty sure was an Olds hood. I thought that color would make a good color for the model, so i custom mixed the paint to match what i remembered of the hood's paint. I like the new version of the kit. It's been improved a lot since 2005-2006. SAM_0115 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0116 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0117 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  2. I had the kit around 92-95 (?). As I remember it was a one piece deck back then. I may still have it stashed away in a box somewhere. I just remember being angry that my step-mom broke it.........along with most of my things. 😥
  3. I got one of these kits when I got my car. I wasn't impressed with the quality. My kit didn't even have the decals for the stripes. You did a good job making it look right.
  4. Just finished one I was gonna post today. But, now, that you've posted this, I'll wait a few days. Nice work
  5. Thanks for the tip on the sale.
  6. I just snagged one of the cheaper ones off eBay. They're worth it.
  7. Well, being the Chevelle guy, I had to get it. This kit is awesome! I don't think I have any complaints about the kit. It came out amazing. I just wish the sun had been out for the pictures. They don't do the paint job justice.
