Here is the write up I did
“The Midnight Gambler”
This car is modeled after Bo Huff’s 56 Merc in
“Deluxe car kulture magazine” issue #9, pages 46-51.
When the Modelhaus resin 56 Mercury came out I had to build this car.
Sure it took a few years to finish but, you know how that goes!
Shaved hood, trunk and door handles
Tamiya spray can black and white with airbrushed PPG clear urethane
Front cat eyes (Detail Master) front license plate (Accu Pro)
Rear license plate (decal) rear plate frame (Model Car Garage)
Spot lights (my parts box)
Lowered of course with the world famous “ARTER RAKE”
Stock wheels and tires with Train wheat bulb working lights (two in each wheel well)
Interior has hand made tuck and roll made from Evergreen half round styrene with wire piping, added fuzzy fur, photo etch rear ash trays (Model Car Garage).
3 piece gauges and foot petals (Detail Master).
Resin dash knobs are from Replicas & Miniatures 51 Merc dash kit. Ignition keys (Model Car Garage) Straight pins used for turn single, shifter, and suicide knob
with (“8 ball” painted on it) steering wheel and column from the parts box.
CHECK OUT THE LIGHTS!
