  1. This is my version of the Revell '49 Mercury. I Love this kit because of all the options & the excellent fitment. I always strive to get nice shiny paint jobs on my builds so I thought I'd try something new & go with flat black. I still couldn't resist the urge to BMF the windows. The paint is Walmart grey primer & flat black with Testor's Dullcoat on top to seal & dull out the decals. I had some various Slixx decals in my stash so I made this into a hotrod shop car. I wanted the flat exterior with a nice looking interior & engine. Thanks for looking.
  2. The color is Tamiya TS-19 Metallic Blue with Testor's Wet Look Clear.
  3. Lol! Thanks...........& that is exactly the way I have it displayed.
  4. The hat comes with the Revell kit. It's painted with Model Masters Fabric Tan spray paint.
  5. This is the second one of these kits I've built. The first was for a friend but this one's mine. Tried to use a set of Keith Marks decals but it was way beyond my skills to get them to work so I used the kit decals with a couple of "6.6L" decals & "Trans Am" decal from the Keith Marks set. I wired the engine & scratch built a CB antenna from guitar string.
  6. Thank you. The color is Tamiya TS-19 Metallic Blue with Testors Wet Look Clear.
  7. Thanks for all the kind words. I like to collect & decorate my bar with JD memorabilia. This will make a nice conversation piece.
  8. No, this is the Revell '55 Ford Panel Truck Kit #854337. I believe it's the same as the HD kit minus the decals.
  9. Nice job. Love the exhaust. Can't wait to build mine.
  10. Revell '55 Ford panel van painted with Model Masters black lacquer & clear. Homemade decals, scratch built shifter with "8 ball" knob, wired engine. Also added a stained, decaled, & clearcoated wooden barrel. I made this one to sit on my basement bar.
  11. Thank you. It is Duplicolor Perfect Match touch up spray paint straight from the can that I buy at Advanced Auto. They also make clear for the top coat. It's lacquer so it dries fast. I do a lot of wet sanding & polishing to get shiny results. Detail Master's polishing kit(sandpapers) & finish with Novus #2 fine polishing compound.
  12. Painted with Duplicolor paint & clear. Wheels/tires are Pegasus. Detailed interior, smoked headlights, lowered stance, BMF "5.0" emblems, flowing horse decals from Boss 429 kit, & painted tail lights. Fun kit to do until they issue the actual model kit(hopefully).
  13. Thanks. Here's an older shot of the engine. The interior & chasis are detailed too. Scratch made window net & nylon screen used for the windshield.
