Monogram kit and decals ( gotta love working with 30 year old kit decals). I modified and resin cast a new nose piece for this as the kit nose is completely wrong. Tamiya paints

That nose looks fantastic. Are you looking to produce more noses and sell them?

I’ve never thought about the nose being incorrect on that era Buick. Great catch. I’d buy a couple as well. That looks so much better than the box stock version.

Yes, that nose does look better, and the paint looks awesome too. You did a great job with those 30-year-old decals as well. They look fresh as new.

Great looking Buick. And I also love that resin nose, so much better than the kit nose.

Wonderful job, making 30 year old kit decals work, they were hard enough when new.

Always liked the look of this car on the track. Never liked to kit nose. I have this kit and a resin nose that I had gotten from someone to build this car. Yours looks great. Hope mine turns out close to this when I get around to it. Wish someone would do aftermarket decals for this car and the red version. Again, yours looks great. Thanks for sharing.

Incredible work! Do you happen to have any of the noses for sale?
