Cool! You don't see these built up very often.

I have one in my stash that will someday be converted to a '73 442

I have another one of these kits and I've toyed with the idea of converting it to a "Y76" model where the rear quarter windows would be partially blanked off. I would need sheet styrene but then would have to reestablish the trim lines around the quarter window. Not sure of how to accomplish that and since it's a rare kit don't want to risk ruining the model.

Thanks mustang. Once and while these show up on ebay and I've been lucky to purchase two in the last year at reasonable prices.

 Great job by you, poor job by JoHan. Here's what the front end should look like.

Beautiful color choice and great work. I have a 74 that I did in Saddle Bronze, and a 75 that I did in Antelope Firemist. Both came out great and rounded my Cutlass collection out nicely !!! Nice to see something other than a 442 or Hurst Olds for a change !!!

Thanks Repstock. I see in the picture where JoHan was off with their grill work. And on my next Cutlass I'll probably use Testors turn signal amber for the parking lights. I've often felt JoHan kits were overall good in terms of design but missed in some areas though. The seats are molded in which makes detailing the carpet with paint more difficult. I may consider flocking or embossing powder on my other JoHan kits.

Thanks American. Since green was a popular color on mid 70's GM cars and I owned two 1:1 cars in green it was a natural choice. I like this kit because it is a base Cutlass model with whitewalls and full deluxe wheel covers. Do you have your Cutlass models posted by any chance? I'd like to see the colors because I'm trying to decide on an appropriate color for the other '75 Cutlass kit I have to build.

 Sadly I do not. Have never had any luck trying to upload pctures on this sight. I think the security on my computer is too strong because I use it for work, and it does not find this sight compatable, or I am just doing something wrong. The other part is I try my best to avoid the 'Perfection Police', you know the ones who patrol every post and nitpick everything to death, regardless if it is relevant to the builder or not....way beyond that in life thank you !!!!
