Great work - it is much more than just a shelf model, you should be proud. What paint did you use?
Thanks for the compliments guys. I spent alot of time trying to go back to the basics on this project. I didn't worry so much about the added details and so forth as I did the building blocks of building a nice looking model.
I forgot that I did scratchbuild the armrests for this car as well. I think the quality of the kit actually contributed alot to the end result you see here. This kit just went together great from start to finish.
Paul, I used Testors Inca Gold from their new line of paints. I used several coats of Testors clear and spent alot of time polishing and waxing the body. The interior is flocked in light tan, dark tan, white and brown. It's hard to see all of it with the car completed, but it's in there. Fishing line was used for the fuel lines from the carbs to the fuel block. That's about it. The rest of the car is box stock.
I have another Merc that I am thinking of going more old school with...we'll see what comes of that project...
