Really like the way you extended your color scheme throughout the entire build . There is just something about that red, black , and white combination that draws your attention to it and keeps it there ! Very nice work !

This is some very inventive work...  it really is a NEW twist on the old Merc.....  you "NAILED" this one...  I especially like the So Cal treatment....

Gotta agree with Jon Doc, this is a real beauty! The color combo is just perfect, and the new decals look great on it!

You build them fast and beautiful. This one came out great doc and the decals are killer. I actually really like those first rims you had in the mock up photo, they weren't the stock steeliness are they? Looking good tho, nice work.

Thanks, everyone.  I really appreciate the kind words.  By now you are way tired of hearing me say it, but the 49 Merc is the kind of kit EVERYONE has to build at least once.

 

All that's missing now are the lake pipes and this one is as good as finished.

This is an awesome car  !

They keep getting better and better Doc.

Can you build these with your eyes closed now ?

I don't know about building with my eyes closed, but I probably no longer need the instructions.  LOL.

Doc, i love the colorsheme and your eye for placing the decals. red and white...beautiful! and i ask myself, why i didn't paint a car with it? Looks great!
