Here's another AMT 60 Merc restoration. Started out with a blue gluebomb and ending up with a Tamiya black with red and black interior.

Let me know what you think.

From what I can see it looks like a great save Al, maybe some shots in the sun? Whenever that happens again :angry:

Thanks everyone for the nice comments and sorry for the dark pictures. If it only stop snowing for more than a day, I could get some better outside shots.

 

Here's a couple taken on my slot car track with better lighting.

Yeah, tell me about it. I'd be happy with a week at normal temperatures instead of 6-8 degrees below.

 

Al- another beauty.
