Here's another one going back up on the shelf after maintenance.  It's a 1/16th Aurora version of the iconic Olds Curved Dash Runabout.  Seems like something always comes loose on my old builds.  This had one fender support needing regluing.

Since I've been inspecting these as I clean and put them back up, I notice improvements that could be made.  When I built this one, the technology for making your own decals wasn't here so the Olds marque is missing from the sides.  No decals were ever supplied with the Aurora Classic series.













Updating one's ancient builds with new skills and technologies could make for some interesting posts.

Again, thanks for looking.

Mike

Not a fan of Vintage cars Mike, but that's gorgeous.

Very nice Mike. The red striping is outstanding.

Very nice build and pictures. The first pic is MoM material.

There is a vendor at the kit collector show that has Several of these for sale. I'll be taking a second look at them and probably picking up a couple.

Wow! Beautiful. Check out www.speedwaydecals.com, they may be able to help with the badging for the sides.
