Very very nice job on this Merc Bob.  The paint, the brightwork, the fact that you were able to get the trunk to operate and look good closed (something I failed at on my recent build).  This color also really suites this car and really makes the chrome, brightwork and wide whites pop.  Even when built as a totally stock, these '49 Mercs look like a mildly customized car from my late 50's- early '60's childhood.  Totally love what you've achieved with this old AMT kit. A+ dude!

I really do appreciate all the kind words man.  Thanks.

Your Merc looks great Bob. I followed your wip and thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the tip on using the eraser to stamp the raised body detail.

Cheers, David. 😎👍

Thanks Dave.  I'm glad there are others who liked the stamping trick for the script.
