Very nice looking '49 Mercury Peter! It looks so right and yet so "wrong" at the same time. Very rare to see one built stock. Nice work!

Stock '49 Mercury is certainly a subject you don't see every day, especially in 1/25 scale. If I had all parts with that AMT '49 Mercury Glue Bomb that I got while ago, I would have built it Stock also, but since it was missing some parts, I chopped it and started building a Custom. You did fantastic job in here, nice paint and detail. Very refreshing to see one of these built Stock, great work. And some day, I'll get another AMT Merc' and that'll be Stock too!

Thanks so much for all your comments.
 

Great color on this one too.

That's my own custom mix. I call it "Peter Green".

Maybe everyone who ever built a '49 Merc lead sled should use this thread to repent.  I'll start: I built one once...I thought it was fun at the time...I was young...I used putty. :)

Your beautiful Merc build reminds me of the time I saw a dead-stock Willy's Americar at Englishtown for the Vintage Drags. Seeing a car stock that's an icon when modified is definitely an attention getter. Not to mention your builds are stunning.....

I don't go here often . I spotted this thread name while scrolling down . I am a Factory Stock builder . So , I looked & smily face ( :D) !. I like this build . Most excellent , just right . The "Peter Green" looks like Factory ? I have lost my Paint chart . I am re-taking pics of my collection . If , that is a big if , I'll post my '49 Mercury here . Alaska Blue w/gray guts . A replica of the James Dean car in ; 'Rebel Without a Cause" before modifications . Thanx ..

CHUCK! I am aghast! I'm non-plussed! My plussed has never been so non! How dare you build a STOCK '49 Mercury. I don't know what's gotten into you but you have broken one of the top two rules in the car world. The other one would be building a '57 Chevy without flames! It just isn't done sir! :P 

 

I'm done speaking ironically now. THAT is one beautiful Mercury. That paint is flawless! You've earned five out of five from me. B)  B)  B)  B) B)

Loved it!!!

I built one too, only mine is in black. Can post a picture if you want to.

Never liked butchered Mercs, like the stock, as they left the factory.

It's so good to see one done up this nicely, like it came from the factory!
