    Oval air cleaner
    Hey guys. Been working on the 49 mercury revell kit for the past decade it seems.  Trying to jazz up the pretty boring engine the kit comes with by adding some new parts. Already have caddilac valve covers on it with a new alternator and fan.  Last part to top it off would be a oval air cleaner to sit atop the three carburetors. I have seen the one that comes with the older camaro kits and think that would look great. If any of you guys or girls have that part that would like to trade or donate to me 😊, it would be awesome!! Any ideas on my motor are welcome too. Here's a few picks of what I have so far.

    Little misleading title, but hope I'm posting this on the right forum ha. Im looking for a process that effectively strips the body of top coat and primer with out eating into the plastic. Only methods I found to kinda work either took all day or when I come back to check on the body it's half gone. What products have you guys got to work for you?? Love to hear all your knowledge!

    Ahh man, you guys are flattering ☺️. But really I can't say how much I appreciate the positive feedback on my car that I've worked pretty hard on. Can't wait to show you all the finish product!! Thanks again!!

    Decided to to my own take on a really cool classic. Always loved hot rods specially in bright colors. It's right out of the box with just spark plugs and hand built distributor added for right now. Body is being painted and should be good to go in a couple of days. Hope you guys enjoy it!!

    Hows it going guys. Just a small update on my car. I applied a few decals to the body that i had lying around. The Plymouth Logo came from the Revell Superbird kit and works well i think. I also but the parachute on and wired it with medical tape and scrap wire. The chassis is about 85% done. Hope you all like it!!

    Getting some time on my hands decided to work on my model. The time away from it was a positive thing i think though. I changed the body color to a pink raspberry with a single racing stripe. Plumbed the oil lines on the engine and made a fuel injection system. First time trying to do both. Should be done with this car in about a week. Please stay tuned in on it!!

    I finished this not to long ago. Stopped working on it for a while cause the color made me want to vomit. The whole car is straight outta the box from revell and I wired the engine myself. Hope you all enjoy!
