Beautiful looking Impy! I built one of these and painted mine gloss white. I really enjoyed building it, and seeing this one makes me want to build my other 'Vert kit I have on the shelf.
The color combo and wheels really set it off and the engine mods fit perfectly with the theme! Great job!

Great work - it is much more than just a shelf model, you should be proud. What paint did you use?

Thanks for the compliments guys. I spent alot of time trying to go back to the basics on this project. I didn't worry so much about the added details and so forth as I did the building blocks of building a nice looking model.
I forgot that I did scratchbuild the armrests for this car as well. I think the quality of the kit actually contributed alot to the end result you see here. This kit just went together great from start to finish.

Paul, I used Testors Inca Gold from their new line of paints. I used several coats of Testors clear and spent alot of time polishing and waxing the body. The interior is flocked in light tan, dark tan, white and brown. It's hard to see all of it with the car completed, but it's in there. Fishing line was used for the fuel lines from the carbs to the fuel block. That's about it. The rest of the car is box stock.
I have another Merc that I am thinking of going more old school with...we'll see what comes of that project...

While I enjoy wild customs, this project really caught my eye. The subtle styling changes on this car really make this project pop. From the side view, it takes on the feel of a speeding bullet without the extreme mods we so much of these days. Absolutely perfect execution of a fantastic subject. From the color to the stance to flawless building techniques, this car is a head turner, no matter which angle you look at it. What an inspirational build! :)
