Lincoln Mark IV

And converted it into a Lincoln Mark IV. I was wondering- has anybody else seen it, or know who built it and where one could find a picture or two of it?

Smoke and all?
Chuck, I have that kit and have been trying to convert it into Uncle Buck's car.

Yeah- I've seen that one, and it is indeed 'crud'! I'd almost think I could scratchbuild a better looking Mark V on my own!
There is a crud 78 Lincoln mark 5 in resin available .

The car was on the cover of Car Modeler some years ago- but I can't seem to find any other info on it besides that. Does anybody have a copy of the issue in question?
You mean this one.

The Model King is a '71- nothing like a '72-'76 Mark IV
?? Yes , thats why I posted the 71 to use the frame and engine for the 77 resin. 77 is the closes to the Conti, with a little modifications that 77 T bird resin will come very close to the Continental

Around here, there used to be a Mark V in a pretty turquoise color; I think it had a white/blue interior. I'd build something like that.

Yeah- the thing is GIGANTIC!!!! The Model King '71 body will almost fit inside it!
Also, that Arii kit is huge. Scales out to about 1/22 scale.
Yea, I know the 1/1 cars were big too but that kit is no where near 1/24.
