Well I mostly build aircraft, so I can´t identify all cars I see in this forum.
I know this is a dumb question but:

Wich is the maroon car that appears on the upper left image on the Model Cars Magazine logo? :unsure:

I'd be as much in the dark about an aircraft Mustang :lol: It's a '49 Mercury. I can't tell you who actually built that one. There is a signature under it but I can't read it.

I don't think it's an actual model- it might be one of Harry's design renderings. But yes, it is a Merc.

It is a rendering by Harry, one of the forum moderators and a key person in getting the Model Cars magazine art laid out every month.

Harry, I had no idea you were so talented, II can draw a mean stick-figure and that's about it. I actually thought that was a model all this time, nice work!

I'm guessing that it is a Cougar concept.

It varies... anywhere between 2-12 hours each, sometimes more... depending on how elaborate or detailed.

I'm guessing that it is a Cougar concept.


Yup. My "what if they made a new Cougar based on the Mustang" idea.

IMHO, Harry's art is worthy of being rendered in plastic.

He put a late 70s/early 80s throw back Buick/Pontiac grille in it and made it cool. B)   Dang Harry.  You got some cool work!  I need to check that section of the forum out more often.    I really like the "line of fire" style taillight on the car in the logo.  I never really thought of that on a Merc before.
