1949 Mercury Custom

Recommended Posts

Hello modeling friends! 

This is is the Revell Mercury kit that's pretty amazing. From the building options to the excellent easy fitting parts. I built this kit as a gift for my brother who is an Auburn University graduate.  Here is a list of the things I added or changed  to the model. A lot of the ideas I got for the car came from all you guys wonderful builds. Hope there's no hard feelings!! 

-blended the front bumper

-cut the B pilar out 

-smoothed the fire wall and molded in wires  

-wired the spark plug wires, battery, colant overflow, alternator, oil filter, and fuel lines. 

-upgraded to a 12v system with a new battery and alternator with custom bracket  

-added the clear steering wheel, metal springs up front, air cleaner and resin valve covers

-paint and clear are duplicolor auto lacquer 

Thanks for looking and model on!!!

That is very nicely done. I like it alot. The white grill is unusual but works very well I think.

Really appreciate the great feedback! Yea went out one a limb with the white grill.  Didn't really like how the chrome one looked in there with there being hardly any chrome on the rest of the car.  So I looked at the tires and thought, white. Ha

That's a real nice build... and congrats to your brother on his college education. But I do have to add a big "Roll Tide" in closing!! ;)

Fantastic color choice, it totally suites the car. The two tone interior compliments the exterior nicely, too.

Good job. I really like the color and that you blended the bumpers into the body. Nice work.
