As a Buick fan, I take every opportunity to buy them in model form, on the rare times when I see one. So here goes.
Another old kit, very hard plastic & some box rash on the clears. No biggie there.
It was my 'take on holidays' kit for the Bathurst race, so it goes back several weeks. It should be a roller by week's end.

Once done it will complement the road going '88 Regal promo that got done a few months back.

65 Skylark GS HT
64,69,70 Wildcats
86 Sumerset T-Type
85 Grand National
66 Skylark wagon
72 or 73? GS

That's quite a list of Buicks! I'm still on my first, the '69 in my avatar.

Interesting.
Not familiar with this.
Valve covers have me thinking this might be a NASCAR, but the wide slicks have me wondering.

Rolling chassis at last. Belts and most of the barwork. It may have a SBC engine, but it's Buick engine red.

Decals halfway there. The large on bonnet/hood is giving me agro, hence the question in the "Help"
area.

Tamiya Titanium Gold for the paint. It's been so damn hot 'n' humid of late, so much so that I'm confining my building to either pre 7Am or after 8 PM.

Excellent progress! The body colour is really stylish - I admit my own bias towards that shade of gold.
