1961 Mercury Comet Fender Ornament. FOUND!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Just acquired a very nice '61 Comet in a trade, but it's missing one fender ornament.

So if anyone has a derelict Comet promo or kit that has one good one left, I have plenty of vintage and newer stuff to trade.

You're an experience modeller, you could just fill in the hole on both sides..Don't really think anyone other than you or any Comet afficiendo would know..

Is the '61 ornament the same as the '60? I might have something that would work for you.

Oh, I'm not too worried about it.

If nothing shows up, I'll work something out.

Must be a different kit.

The AMT '61 Comet is a curbside kit with no engine.

As far as I can tell, they look the same to me.

I don't have a '60 kit to compare, but after doing a little google search, they seem to be the same part.

Here is the one that I have.

Looks the same! I have a glue-bomb that has one intact ornament. If I can get it off in one piece, it's yours.

Wow Steve!

I would really appreciate that.

Give me some idea of something that I can send you in return!

That's a glue bomb? Looks like a cool display piece to me! Set it up with a For Sale sign and it would make a great diorama.

Ha, right - not the worst glue bomb for sure, although some of the paint looks like it was applied with a hose and sanded with gravel.

Very well then, but I do like the color. It makes it look like an old used car in the 70s. 

Definitely worth restoring, hopefully you can do something with it.

Did you see my Falcon in the Glue Bombs thread? It was worse!

Whoo, just looked - that's a bad one alright! Some dedication needed to fix that. I brought back an early Falcon a few years ago - the roof was so melted and caved in by paint that I ended up removing it and grating on a new roof.

Thanks Doug.

They are not exactly the same, but very close!

Would have been close enough for me, but I believe that "RancheroSteve" has one headed my way.

I appreciate you looking out for me though!

Thank you much!!
