Here is my latest attempt at panel paint job ! I had to try on a 49 merc, a car that was way to old in the late 50's in the paneling craze !

I love how humble this guy is. "Attempt", he says. Awesome work Zed, as usual.

Another masterpiece, ZED. Great work, and I love the fact you put your skills to one of my favorite kits, the 49 Merc. Another gem in your collection.

Congrats.

Really nice job!!! It would be very hard to say, is that real or model. Maybe those garage doors show that it's a model, but that Mercury is really nicely built. Paintjob looks very cool, colors are perfect and it's very shiny. Painting those golden areas, was it hard to do...? Great wheel and tire choice, this is truly Old School, and Old School IS Cool. Nice job on the Mercury, great stance too.

Very, very nice work !! Nice dio also, although I'd suggest Evergreen has some grooved plastic that would improve those doors. I think that would make that dio so much more convincing. And one more thing, looks like the owner needs some Roundup on those weeds poking though the drive ! :-)

That is one beautiful '49 Merc.... You did an awesome job on this. I do have to ask what color did you lay down first and what type of paint did you use on this. It is just gorgeous!!
