'69 Mercury Cougar Eliminator

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I finished the Eliminator yesterday. It was a bit of a fight, especially as far as the body color is concerned. I learnt that yellow is one tough color to get a good result in. 

Here come the images, hope you like it:

Nice looking build. You did a great job on it. I always liked this car. Meant to build the kit a few times over the years.

I saw one on a used car lot in Utah in '87. It was also yellow. Wanted to buy it very badly but, me being 18 years old at the time, I didn't have the money they were asking and it probably wouldn't have lasted long. Instead, I bought a yellow 81 Datsun pickup.

Later-

Very nice kitty.  The engine is also great for doing a 1/25 Mustang Boss 302.

Beautiful looking Mercury. Not a 1:1 model often seen and even less so in scale.  I had a friend who had an XR7 Cougar with the 390 and auto. trans. They were great riding cars.

Looks like you got excellent results! I have one of these and hope mine turns out half as nice. Great job!

Looks great!!!

Yes, yellow is a bear to paint. I have found that a white primer or flat white base lightly scuffed helps me painting yellow.

Looks good.  I have a request from a friend to build a convertible Cougar.  This is good inspiration to dig it out and get cutting.
