Looks good, KWT! How's the kit? Did it go together well? Any pros or cons? Cool Thumbs Up

If you cannot have a good time, what kinda time can you have? JR

Next on the bench:  Another 1970 Hemi 'Cuda, 1958 Chevy Impala, 1987 Buick GNX, 1950 Chevy Pick-up, Indy Reynard, 1965 Corvette, probably not in this order.

Thanks, modelcarjr... much like with Mike a few other that have commented on my stuff over the years. Coming from modelers of you guy's caliber, is freaking awesome!
 
It is a really nice kit. To me, it's quite on par with their Nova COPO kit if you've built one. The only real PITA is trying to get the decals line up with one another. AND the kits glass is thin... I can see some people having trouble with it. The windsheild requires a little bit of fiddling, and if you get a little frustrated you will break it.

That engine bay looks like it has every piece that would go under there. Nice job on the kit

Good looking Olds. Those decals look like they would be a minor pain to put on. Nice work.
