  1. So while waiting for the 65 Lincoln hardtop to arrive, I decided to build this convertible as a companion piece for the 65 Park Lane. Painted with Tamiya TS-63 dark blue with Testors wet look clear. Interior is painted with Testors enamel Pearl blue metallic. Comparing the two grilles, you can see the Lincoln influence on the Mercury grille, (or vise-versa!). Mercury grille on top, Lincoln on the bottom. Thanks for looking!
  2. Basic interior color shot, this is Testors Nassau blue metallic from their auto lacquer line. Final color coats of Tamiya TS-19 Metallic blue Mockup to see if the colors work together :-) What do you all think?
  3. I also won a 65 Lincoln hardtop that I'll be building as a companion piece to this Mercury. Stay tuned for pictures of that one when I get it. You all stay safe and thanks for looking!
  4. I was going to wait a bit before I started this but, the urge was too strong!. Here it is with the beginning coats of Tamiya TS-19 Metallic Blue. Engine is almost done. And the stock wheel covers are done. Now, believe it or not, I also scored a 65 Merc with the custom pieces on it. My plan is to redo the custom with the newer custom pieces from the kit I just got. Here are some pics the seller posted on evil bay. Thanks for looking!
  5. Just got this one Box contents and instruction pictures at the link: http://carmodelingcorner.com/KitReviews/AMT_1965_Mercury_Parklane.htm
  6. Here we go, an update after 10 years! See, I never get rid of a model :-) Bison - I got the trailer completed except for decals and tail lights. I've found all the parts for the cab so that should be showing some progress soon. Kenworth T-900 "Australia" - Got some paint on this one, Testors Lime Ice. No progress on the other ones I had previously listed, let's just say I've collected all the parts I've scattered over the years. I have started some new ones though. Freightliner COE SD - Painted Testors Electric Pink, this will transport a load of 1970 Dodge Chargers, Super Bee, and a Challenger in the high impact colors, that is why I painted it electric pink. Kenworth Aerodyne COE - Painted Tamiya Bright Orange, this will be a companion piece to the K123 That will be hauling the AMT Exterior Post Van in Interstate livery. Kenworth Aerodyne Conventional - Revell snap kit. This one sure looks big compared to the RoG T900. This is painted Testors Revving Red. I have a couple more of the AMT Freightliner SD/DD kits, one is the 75th anniversary with the Consolidated Freight decals. So an ambitious project I have planned is to build a DD with sleeper cab triple trailer. I picked up two of the double header trailer kits so I have three plus two boogie (if this is the right term) axles for it. Of course if board wisdom tells me CF never ran the DD with sleeper with triples then I'll just build one of the Freightliners as an SD no sleeper cab. I do know they ran a few of them with triples basically through Nevada back in the day. The other will be built as a DD with sleeper but not with CF markings. Well, that's all the updates I got so far, thanks for looking.
  7. Starting back on these again, Nd even started a few more. Updated picks coming in the next few days.
  8. Since Revell is coming out with the 69, I had better get back to these soon.
  9. They came in the 65 Oldsmobile kit.
  10. Hey - They body is pretty accurate and it builds up pretty good. While the interior could be more accurate for a quick weekend build I think it works pretty good. Someone could start with a 66 Rivera cash and modify it to fit the WC. While I agree that AMT really dropped the ball back in 1965/1966 by not updating the interior, I don't agree that it is just a lump of plastic.
  11. Not gonna get it finished this year, but should be the first out of the gate next year! You all have a safe and Happy New Years! Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed!
  12. I am working on some aluminum sheeting to clean up the nose section of this, once I get done the screw mountings won't be seen.
  13. I got this many years ago from ebay, it was in a partial built stage with horrible paint. I cleaned it up, shot it with some paint, then decided the body needed more work. Into a box it went. That was in 2008. A few days ago I decided to drag it out and see what I could do with it. Since all the body markings were really faint and I had secured another 65 Oldsmobile unbuilt, I decided to do this one with the custom touches. Here it is so far. What it looked like in 2008 After a bit of work with sand paper and fitting the custom nose and tail on it, here it is now. Painted with Testors Mystical Maroon. with wet look clear. I'm using the engine that came with the kit. It had been assembled and painted some type of beige color(?) I removed the water pump and intake manifold and substituted the super charger intake instead. More later.
