The beginnings of yet another '50 Olds

I normally do not subscribe to the hysteria that prevails upon a new release. Witness my Hudson is still in the box one year later.

But......I have been waiting for a 1949/50 Oldsmobile for so long now, when my kits arrived I dove right in.

Obligatory engine pics. I do love this kit's engine!

Here's my green of choice. (It's what I had on hand. ;) )

First impressions are a mixed bag of "wow I like that" , to "why is there so much flash" and "why are there so many sink marks on a new tool?"

And so it begins......................

Thanks Carl.

On a side note it really pays to browse the LHS when killing time. I found some Gundam parts that will more than suffice for the spotlights required in this build. This car had three mounted on the roof, two facing forward, the drivers side being red, and one facing rearward in amber.

Additionally this set has some really really small clear lenses I need for a tank I'm currently building as well. Two birds with one stone, or shall I say one $15 bill (I bought two sets)

I'll post pics as soon as I can.

Ok here she sits as of today. I took a break from building everything as work has been a bear. These are the Gundam parts I mentioned.

I combined the lenses with one of my resin spotlight backs.

And built these.

Lovin' it. Kingman Az. has a GM-bodied early '50s police car preserved in a similar livery, if I remember right.

Favorite movie line:

Edwards " Hey man, what are you talking about? I AM half the man that you are! "
