Revell '49 Merc

Recommended Posts

   Revell's 49 Merc almost "out the box"...added plug wires, upholstery piping, and lowered the stance.  The paint is House of Kolor Candy Tangerine dusted with a couple of coats of copper pearl then a couple of coats of urethane clear after the decals were applied.  Except for the stance being too high the kit went together without any problems. 

Thanks for lookin', Aloha...Pete

What an extremely clean build! Excellent paint, decal, and BMF!

I'm not sure I like the orange plug wires...maybe they'll grow on me.

Clean, clean, clean. Beautiful paint and foil work, everything fits right.

It just doesn't get much better than this. Absolutely top marks.

Where'd you get the shrink ray?

Awesome, looks like what you'd see at a car show in Los Angeles.

I don't care what the complaints are against this body, these are among my favorites (it is a CUSTOM after all).   This looks great - love the color.  And the flames.  And well, all of it!  Nice job!

I agree Randy...for all the things that are "wrong" with the shape of this kit's body the finished product looks pretty cool sitting on the shelf😎

Thanks to all for the great feedback/comments!!!

Outstanding work.

I've seen more nearly-out-of-box builds of this kit than any other I can think of. Which is testament to a great kit I believe.
