WOW!!!  That looks great!  I had planned on doing the same with my Hurst Olds.  I went out and bought the PE set from Model Car Garage so I can build mine and I have a McNally story to go along with it.  Did I say WOW yet?  Oh yes...I did!!!

Looks good. I plan to do the opposite scheme, black with silver contrasts.

Superb ! 

I've always had a liking for these straight lined 80's GM cars , especially when leaving the start line with the wheels WAY up in the air .... Mischief

Wow is right. I too am working on this. I just finished botching up the grill so bad by trying to open it up that I have had to order another kit. At least I can justify the expense due to the fact that I pulled an overtime shift just the day before. So, how did you do your grill because it looks fantastic, as does the rest of the car.!?? As a sidenote, would you agree this is one of the finest kits Revell has produced? I sure believe it is

Thanks!

I painted the grill flat black. The chrome inserts are actually a decal made by a friend of mine. I have an empty grill from Clearly Scale that takes the PE set from Model Car Garage, but I misplaced the PE set. This was easy peasy though.

I do agree, this is a fabulous kit. It helps that I love the mid-eighties Gbody cars, and the Cutlass is top dog for me. Here's a couple shots of the 84 with the 83 I built earlier.

Thanks! I do appreciate it!

I built the '83 version last year. Loved it so much, I decided to do this one.

Thanks! I built the '83 last year and loved it so much I had to build this one. Posted a pic of the 2 up a tad.

Excellent build and color choice. I ended up turning my kit into a Cutlass Calais with the flat hood in GM's light Briar Brown as I am not in to the Hurst or 442.

 What a nice pair of Oldsmobles!! I haven't worked on mine much with such a great summer but I did do a coat of primer on the aftermarket hood and the car. I am in a quandary as to how to get rid of the red trim stripe on the wheels though. I don't have a Molotow chrome pen but I wonder if that would cover the red stripe. I don't want to strip the chrome if I can possibly avoid it. Any of you guys who have built this got a suggestion?

Thanks guys!

I haven't tried to cover the red stripe yet. Trying to work out a build with a different set of wheels right now. It's one of the kits that I dug enough, that ended up with several.
