Wait, uh wait a minute, Bill, is that what it's supposed to look like?

That's a 1949 Mercury? Who knew?

Slick build there.

Mike

Did you scratchbuild the side trim?

Afraid not, was at a 'Goodguys' car show in Pleasanton viewing the model car exhibit, when one of the guys working the tables mentioned he had some resin parts for sale. I purchased these along with some 'guide' style headlights and some other miscellaneous items.

Wow! There are some very nice Mercs here. I built this one in 08. It's a curbside. I needed the motor for another project. I call her Gold Rush.

The flying eyeball here is a tribute to the great Kenny Howard. (Von Dutch) I just twisted it a bit with the bat wings.

The grille bullets are the masterful craftsmanship of Mr. Bob Dudek. Thanks again Bob!

Here's one I built and posted a few months ago. Testors Mystic Emerald with white flames. I used a flame mask, which worked well. It's shown here on my car show diorama.
