"Versatility is Important in Highly Modified Builds"
michael.miller (michael.miller@windstream.net)
Finding standard kits from the 30's - 50's that are not irreversibly hot rod builds and that allow enough modification latitude to allow the creation of historically accurate reproductions of early Stock Cars raced at Daytona and elsewhere is increasingly difficult. We build each model from information gathered from original specifications, builder notes as well as still and video images of the cars. We try to create reproductions that would cause the builder or driver to say, Yes, that's the car we raced. You've captured it in that model. The 1950 Olds Custom #854022 purchased has the versatility to allow modifications for a high level of reproduction. Each car we produce is unique and we accomplish that through careful modification and the addition of discrete details. It would be nice to have a broader variety of engine types and, for our purposes, important parts not always chromed; however, for the typical builder, this kit is very good and we are satisfied to remove the chrome from some parts to achieve our goals. The parts fit well, the instructions are adequate and the details are clear enough to add realism to the model.

First and foremost I have to say Revell kits are awesome this kit has no flash or mold lines and the parts fit is amazing I found it very fun to assemble it's not a difficult level 3 so I think even a novice model builder should have no trouble with this kit. I looked and this kit has a lot of parts in common with the club coupe version except this kit does not have the race car version. There are many chrome parts you can use that are not listed in the instructions such as the 88 emblems, hood ornament, and the chrome tail light and turn signal trim. The instructions are clear and easy to understand I consider myself an average model builder and for me this kit was very fun. Also this version comes with a 3 carb intake set up and not the single carb setup that the club coupe has.

Nice kit. Has some options. Really like the printed whitewalls they look nuce and round and center. Less mold lines than expected. Some across the lower trunk, front fenders, and a few on the sides. One thing i did not care for was water slide decals for tail lights. Nice interior details. Have been wanting this one for a bit. Caught it on sale. Do not let my 4 star rating stop you from getting this kit. The only reason i did is the decal tail lights. At the sale price this kit would be worth it even if it was only a 3 star. I have sanded and primed the body and some other parts. Not sure on a color yet.

"1950 Olds Flight Of Fancy"
Jimmy D.
The Revell 1950 Olds Custom is a welcome addition to its '50s lineup. This kit is obviously a spin-off from its stock version of this car and it retains all of the excellent fits and features of the original. I had lots of fun building this one and decided to add tail fins to mine since I thought the turtle back look of the box cover version looked a little too, well, turtle like! I re-imagined mine as how the famous Alexander Brothers might have customized it back in the day. This is a fabulous kit and you can let your imagination run wild on it! Think I'll add a few more of these babies to my kit stash for future flights of fancy!


Due to small parts that could cause a choking hazard please kee away from children 3 years of age and younger.
