I hope I'm not the only one who noticed that woody in the back.Looks like a Merc,should be A LOT cheaper then any modsquad version you find out there.

I believe it does but as it stands now it will have the Caddy engine from the 49 Mercury custom kit.

Saw that...no biggie, the AMT '49 Merc is easy enough to source an engine from.

I really hope the 49 Merc will come with a separate, all stock coupe body... As much as I like woodies for being something different, I cannot see myself painting all that wood and making it look realistic.

Tower Hobbies has a 49 Merc wagon listed as a May 2013 release.
Anybody know anything about this?

Here are the pics Steve Goldman took of the '49 Mercury Woodie:

Looks like a modified reissue of the Custom Merc ..... no stock engine or trans. The rest looks all Stock

Does the current Revell '49 Mercury Custom kit include a totally stock chassis and suspension?

Some '49 Mercury Woodie-specific posts were moved when this topic was created, so the timestamp of each posts ranks them, even after they've been moved. Your post was the oldest, so it's now the first in this topic.

I will have to get one of these, painting all the wood is going to be tricky job, but worth having a go at it ...

No, but it wouldn't be difficult to rework it to stock specs. Namely raise the suspension a couple of scale inches. The present exhaust system could be adapted into a stock version.

Yeah, this is another "must-have" for me. I don't care what engine or suspension it has. I can't wait to rebuild the wood parts out of real wood.
