I just wrapped up this stock '71 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler. I kit bashed an original MPC funny car body with a Revell '70 Torino chassis and interior. More pics and all the details are at the link. http://www.svensworl...clone_page.html

Well, it certainly takes a pair to post a pic of a real car, and try to pass it off as a model! :lol:  ;)   Wow, that is incredible!  How about some engine and chassis pics?

That is a beautiful Cyclone Sean! Did you have to modify the body to get it to stock condition? Also, what interior did you use? I would love to have a Cyclone to build for myself!

Stunning !!!  You did a beautiful job with this one .  It also happens to be one of my favorite cars of all time and I have an original MPC kit getting closer to my bench every day !

Incredible build, Sean!  Your photography is top-notch as well.  I'd love to build a Cyclone for myself, as they are one of my favorite cars from the era.  Simply stunning build, thanks so much for sharing!

Nice build!!!!!

 

I can remember my dad bringing home one of this in white in the mid 70s when he use to sell used cars.

 

I've got one of this ( 1/25 th scale ) but I can't decide if I want to build it as showroom stock or something else.
