Beautiful Olds. Great paint work, and the colour is gorgeous. Well done.

Thank you! It was hard to capture the color in my camera - I really like the Mr Color's metallic lineup.

That sir is a downright beautiful 442!  Those colors work so well together too. Your effort shows everywhere. Very well done!

Thank you very much!  I love these unique interior colors from 60s domestics.

Great build, nice images! Well done! De-chroming the wheelhouse trims certainly was worth the effort, as IMHO that is one big downside of this kit. I also like the fact that you give detailed information on your painting process. In fact, I might be tempted to use your "mixing recipe" for the body color one day... :rolleyes:

I agree 100%. After de-chroming it I noticed the uneveness  on those parts but they were too fragile to properly sand them - I really should've glued them pre-primer and fixed the gap with putty.

That's a stunner Chang, so nicely done. That paintwork!

Modelling metallic colors (especially the size of flakes) have come a long way since a decade ago when I started modelling somewhat seriously!

Chang....very, very sharp.  Great to see the effort to use factory-correct finishes and colors.....Big congrats....TIM 

Thanks Tim! I always start my process with factory color books and looking at countless photos of examples  - for me it's the most fun part of the modelmaking. Olds back in the day certainly had great colors to pick from.. unlike boring colors that you get with cars these days.

Extremely impressed with mirror-like finish and equally impressed with the detail and realism on the instrument panel side of the dash.

Thank you! Masking is definitely tedious but it's well worth the effort.
