1968 Hurst OLDSMOBILE


Recommended Posts

That is so sweet looking! Did you do the body or is it resin? I have a Johan in my stash and it would be so tempting to try. Hurst colours will really make it.

Cheers Misha

That looks great! I've seen many "Camino-versions" but most of them just don't get it. Yours is one of a very, very few I've ever seen that works. Nicely done and keep us posted on this!

Thanks! I am bouncing between this and the 69 right now. I see an end in sight. Been on and off since 2009.

 Both bodies, and a prototype, were made by combining an AMT 68 El Camino and an AMT 69 Oldsmobile.

 The 68 parts are modelhaus resin pieces. I am glad I got a few conversion sets before they shut down. 

 Really looking forward to getting these done. Next step will be to paint around rear window, bedrails and tail gate black..

My thoughts exactly upon seeing the first photo. I was taken aback by how "right" this looks!

I'd say that is because it is based on the same basic body (GM intermediate). The balance and proportions remain. That is indeed a great looking conversion.
