'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-

Hi!

The paint may have fought you... but the gloss is certainly here! Great finish!

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!

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.

Looks fantastic!! I'd say you certainly won the fight. I'm having the same problem with yellow on my '71 Hemi Cuda.
