With the Miller Buick finished and in the cabinet, its time to start on another build. An '97 Olds Aurora. So, let the madness descend............

Reduced to it's main components. I've since broken the interior down all the way. Interestingly enough, the B pillar is moulded into the glass, so
a 4 door hardtop is easy. Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Holiday Sedan perhaps?

The chassis is one piece, but well detailed enough to put some 'real' model kits to shame. Really, really well done.

The factory paint would pass, with a polish, except for some mould lines on the rear. So close, not close enough. So it will get a repaint.
Colour to be determined. Watch this space.

I see what you mean about the chassis/underside. Very nice.

Painted and gassing out. We'll see how it responds to the polish later on.

Apart from the column stalks & paint, the interior is all kit & my paint & BMF.

Underside done. Auto store Flat Black, BMF & some detailing. Came up OK, and its all one piece!

Great work on the underside! The body looks beautifully clean with that colour.
