Mine's still in thw WIP stage, but at the moment this is where she is:

Did some paint chipping on her and she might be heavilly weathered by the weekend. Should be a rat/salt-lake-racer/moar-rat in the end ;) Oh, btw, the turbo on her is going to be out of this world :D

One more pic of a dry-fit before the painting took place:

And the turbo (in the making, a few weeks ago):

Man, what a nice group of models! Incredible diversity of style and finish, but all beauties! Nice work, everyone! My favorite has to be Jason McMinn's two tone purple one with the white Carson top. That's one of the best looking models of any kind I've seen! Excellent!

Thanks, John, lots of great builds being posted here. Hope you guys keep 'em coming. The Revell 49 Merc Limited Edition is one of Doctor Cranky's favorite kits. Certainly up in the top 3.

All awesome work guys! Great ideas, designs & paint finishes. Very cool rides!

I do have the kit in my collection as well with extra parts in it for an idea I've had. One of these years.

Wow - incredoble, how many Mercs are in each collection! The classic basic for a custom. Cause, the look of a stock Merc is also "factorycustomized" - very coooool design.

Sure, i have two built in my collection - no surprise!

This one is weathered and took place on a diorama called "MOrePARts4U" - a parts dealer:

i must search for a picture from my custom made Merc, i dont have him at home. It is not such a beautiful custom like all the posted here.
