Here are some pics of my Revell 49 Merc. I removed the drip rails and added some trim with some .060 half round. I also made a front roll pan. The paint is duplicolor perfect match stellar blue pearl and artic white covered with duplicolor clear all from the spray can. I have wired the engine and given it a black wash. I may do fuel lines and throttle linkage.

Almost done. I removed the molded in battery for a smoother underhood. I also replaced the molded cable on the drivers side with a piece of wire and BMF clamps. Also did BMF clamps on the radiator hose. I made grab handle for the seat backs out of half round styrene flattened on each end. Thanks for looking. All comments welcome.
