Purple looks real good on the Merc.  It has a nice and clean look to it, well done.

I like the looks of that. Revell went with a little more of what I would call a "hot rod chop" for the roofline, that kit seems to work better when built that way. When built as a custom it looks a little funky and needs to be fixed. But to me it works on a hot rod. So do the Centerlines. And nothing says bad*** better than a DeSoto grille.
