Oldsmobile Aerotech Longtail 1:24 scale model by Monogram Models

(With apologies for the deleted posts - i've had some issues uploading pictures. Hopefully resolved!)

Loved this build - an old kit by Monogram Models which I was initially sceptical about but its probably one of my favourite builds so far. 

The fit was mostly perfect - needed clamps a few times, but nothing major. 

The kit comes with two versions of the body and engine - the shorttail and longtail (which is the one I went with - how could you not with that dramatic swoop!)

Like many old models, the decals were not in great shape, so I had to improvise a bit on the cody colour, went with chrome, chrome and more chrome (50 shades of chrome?) inspired by my favourite movie: Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow.

Hope you like it - welcome any feedback and thoughts. 

... and the beautiful engine

Wow! That's a Monogram gem I don't think I've ever seen before.

Excellent build, and truly lovely detail!
