Hello All.... Well, while I am in the middle of my Highly detailed 1/16th Scale Army Vega Funny Car I figured I needed another small project going on the side when I need a break from the F/C. I have had this Jimmy Flinstone 1/43rd Merc for a while and been looking forward to building it. I have been toying with a few different ideas for paint and finally decided on a paint scheme for it and the colors. Most of this build will be straight from the kit but I am going to try and add a couple of personal touches to it by adding a little detail to it. I am thinking I am going to try to come up with a custom grille for it as well as try and add some sort of detail to the door panels. I also picked up some Mexican Sombrero hubcaps and white walls for it. I am hoping that this build won't take me too long since there really isn't too much too it. So stay tuned and be patient with me on updates with this. I think this is going to be a fun build.
Here is the kit and all of the pieces as well as rims and tires I picked up for this:
Here is a side view of the stance and with the rims that will be used:
Here is the inspiration for this build.... I will be going with House of Kolor True Blue Pearl and House of Kolor Planet Green....
