Here we go, who called for a pinup. I finally found my sheets of pinup decals . . . sweet.


The Fonz and I approve.

Hey Doc maybe we should call you Mercman now instead of me. :D


Nah, lets not go down that road, because he does build a lot of Willys' too, and to call him Willysman, just sounds too funny.

So, Virg, how come the special edition Merc is better? I've got one--just one--so I don't know any difference. I do have a Modelhaus body and a bunch of R&MCoM parts to add to it, but haven't looked at it in a while.

Interesting topic, especially with all the great examples.

Thanks, Junior, they've come in handy over the years for all sorts of things like workbench posters in dioramas, and now this . . . your generosity for sharing is always appreciated.

Cheers, DC


Well you know where to find them if you need more.

Terry, Revell has put out some fine kits in recent years (or at least the retools), but the 49 Merc just goes so well together. I just love the fact that I don't have to chop it, which is a great big plus in my book. The chassis does need a little bit of coaxing to fit into the rear, but it's not difficulty to get it to fit just right. Lots of parts, the fact that it comes with three options for the grill, two for fenders, two wheels and tires . . . it's one of my faves for these and many other reasons, not to mention the interior and the dashboard . . . give yours a closer look you will like it even more after you do.

Hey, Donn, if you want enamels, it's going to cost you a few more dollars!

Oh wait, you are talking to Terry, I thought you were talking to one of the burlesque performers! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks, Tony, Junior, and Jim. Stay tuned in for a bit more progress soon.

What a great thread, so much fun to follow. Awesome job as usual, Doc! A lot of very creative & cool ideas.

Maybe those pasties should be put on a pair of D cup dagmars!

I just can't let go that Virgil does his name right. He is as wild as Exner, and I love his work as well. :wub:
