    Back in the mid 70s there was a made for TV movie starring Barbara Feldon and Barbara Eden.They played friends who switched lives for a time.Barbara Eden drove an E Type Jaguar,Barbara Feldon drove a Country Squire of similar vintage to this one.Upon switching cars the first thing Barbara Eden said when driving the Ford was "It's like driving the Queen Mary".

    My '71 Formula 455 H.O. was a similar green to your model.Always liked that color.................

    Do you mean an M8B Can-Am car?The M7A was a Formula 1 car and was originally kitted by Heller the re-released by Union.Accurate Miniatures never did an F1 car.

    While I'd welcome a Kaiser of any sort(except a Darrin) I know it wouldn't be a popular subject.But I had a friend back in high school who was big into them(and Marlins too!),even owning one that had been Suede-texed,so I  got to know a bit about them.I even helped him retrieve an extremely rare '55 Manhattan.I got to sit in the rotten thing while he towed it up I-75 behind one of his Marlins.That had to be a sight for the rest of traffic!

    I hope they do go back to the polished bodies.

    Your model came out looking very nice-it's tempting me to go buy another one and improve on my first effort with this kit.I too had fit and adherence issues with some of the parts and couldn't get the seat inserts to be the color I intended.

    Since I can't access Tim Boyd's review here at work to view any pics I'll ask this here-Are the parts made in the grainy type plastic like the '54 Hudson or are they the smooth type like the '55 and '56 Chryslers and the earlier Hudsons?

    SHARED CHASSIS?
    I noticed an extra front axle(with poseable steering) on the parts tree of the R/M '41/'43 Willys pickup and it got me wondering- What other kit shared that chassis?

    If it's an unbuilt kit and the parts are still bagged,take them out of the bags and toss out the bags.Then put the pieces where they won't get  lost and let air circulate around them for a while.Do the same for a built up model.

    Yes,that's a 1/24 scale Monogram kit.The odd body proportions give it away.

    Don't forget the Lakewood traction bars.

    Looks like you sanded all the high spots down.The new paint job should be very smooth!

    If the decals haven't crumbled into pieces spray some clear lacquer over them.That will make them useable.

    Check the price of the Tamiya primer at your LHS.Often the price will be comparable with Hobby Lobby and it's 40% off coupon.

    There was a '55 Mercury(and I think a '56,too) in the 1/32 scale series.
