      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Actually, I don't think we have any 50's Mercury kits. The '49 Merc, afaik, is not the same as the '50 or the '51. The '51 has different sheetmetal in the taillight area.

    That looks so fine! Big, long, and low! The wheels look right on a car like this.

    Oh, she's got everything going for her! Beautiful colors, great build!

    Real sharp build, Graham! And your photography is A+ as well!

    Not correct?

    Bob, thanks! I think that's it! I always keep my screen resolution @ 125%, as it just makes everything easier to see. Most time this is not a problem. But it does seem to be enough to distort certain pics.
    Most photo hosting sites afaik can reduce uploaded photos by whatever percent desired. If folks could do that, it would be a world of help. My eyes are not what they used to be, apparently.

    This problem is getting worse. More people are posting photos that are large, square, and distorted. Note: SOME people, not everyone. I just don't understand why it is apparently just me? My browser is Edge 38 on Windows 10.

    The "slant" in the wide blower belt, I wonder if that is part of the molding draft? The angled edges are to aid in letting the part eject from the tool.

    I did not know what a Woodlite headlight was, so I Googled it. If you are not familiar either, this is it:

    FINALLY found the "Gas Man" '49 Ford. Wanted it for those tires as well as just a kool kit overall.

    Long and low is the way to go. Always has been.

    When I see your name, I know it's going to be something outstanding. Great Chrysler!

    Just the right amount of rust through! Not overdone. Great build!

    I so WANT this kit!
    I don't buy too many kits these day... so many past purchases still waiting for their turn.
    I might even have a '49 Ford, but not with the cool hides like this one!
    Did the boat from China land at the wrong island?
    I need it!

    With dual rear axles, that would look killer!
