Monogram 1969 Pontiac GTO

Built this from an old 1981 Monogram kit. I tried to source the closest color I could to factory Goldenrod Yellow. What do you guys think?

Nice, great color choice. I remember building that kit when it came out. I gotta pick one up.

Thanks for all of the compliments guys!! I really appreciate it. I am happy with the way it turned out overall, except for the firewall. It is very bare and lacking in terms of detail. I have built this older version and the 90's release back in 2008. I found that even though this kit came out about 15 years earlier, the mold never had extra firewall details added, shame. Still a nice kit with excellent fit and finish.

Color really makes this one a standout. Nice indeed!! Bet that yellow would look good on the 70 Buick GSX, too.

I agree, I built a 70 GSX a few years back but didn't want to go with the box stock yellow so I ended up with sublime green
