Another older curbside build. Paint is Sikkens base/clear, tyres are Satco, steering is poseable.

I love seeing this car built stock. I am so tired of the cliché '49 Merc leadsled.

In the "Real or Model" arena, there's very little that would give this one away.

 

Nicely done and nicely presented.

I LOVE this! It makes me so happy to see a rep-stock '49-51 Merc.

 

I'd love to see someone have the guts to try and make a 1949-51 4-door with those cool suicide doors.

It needs nothing, beautiful on it's own. I agree with Harry on this one.
