I think I grabbed this picture from Dean Milano's 'site, but does anyone have any more on SC Miller and what he/they made, other than this Lincoln? I'm pretty sure this is 1/25 and totally unrelated to the 1/32 Revell kit, and I know I saw a newer Lincoln Mark V(?) on eBay a few months ago made by SCM, too, but I don't recall if I saved a picture.

 

Here's the '56:

Miller did quite a few '50's subjects in the '80's, maybe into the '90's. Most of them were based off old pot metal banks, but later on there were subjects cast from scratchbuilt masters and modified kits. He passed away about ten years ago, and I haven't seen any other casters who've picked up any of his old products.  He also did an EXTREMELY rare repop of a 1:12 scale promo of the 1959 Buick Electra.

I have one of his castings. a 60 Olds 98 Convertible. Not the best.

It has a Thin Skin filled with Bondo. That fill was still Soft years after getting it.

The front grill, bumper, headlights,Rear bumper, Tail lights and Boot cover

are all cast in place. The chassis was a Flat plate with locators for brass/copper/metal tube axle mounts.

When I got it the windshield frame was broken.

I have replaced it and the chassis with the parts from a Monogram 59 Impala.
