The guys in the back tell that the proportions are wrong, and the model is not on the floor.

It's real. If it were a model, then there wouldn't be people in the background. However, in recent times, you've been messing around with the background, so it's getting hard to tell nowadays.

Something tells me large scale model with this one. Then again, I've been known to be wrong in the past.

Well, I got the last one right on my first try, so I'm shooting for 2-for-2... hopefully... I'm going to go with model, larger scale, and possibly mostly scratch build.

My first impression says model. Maybe one big enough for kids to ride in. It just doesn't seem to be proportioned right for the real thing.

I would have to go with "model" only because the "striping" on the fenders is not perfect. On a restoration of a classic like this the "lines would be straight. If it is a model, I would also guess that it is a larger scale, pehaps 1/12.

Model! There are a few things that don't look right for this car. I am ignoring the outsized people in the back. :)

A rare car like a Mercer would never appear in a mundane setting like that. It's a model. :lol:

That way of looking at it didn't occur to me but you're right. Those things are worth millions!

Well, this time I thought I'd leave the background alone. The proportions of the people standing in the background compared to the car make it obvious that the car can't be full size...however, I figured some of you might think that I Photoshopped the background just to fool you, and vote "REAL" for that reason.

In fact, the photo is totally as I found it, and it's a model. A BIG one...1/4 scale!

Next ROM coming MONDAY!!!
