'49 Mercury

Recommended Posts

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.

Not my style, but a nice clean build nonetheless.  The interior looks great.  They're wonderful kits to build, aren't they?

Pretty nicely done, but you would need hands the size of a gorilla's to make those shifts! Also... since you added graphics to the underside of the hood, you really should have dealt with those ejector pin marks.

When you look up "suede sled" in the dictionary, this should come up!  Great model.
