Let's see the '49 Merc's

Recommended Posts

Did this AMT 49 several years ago. Took a pie section out starting at the front of the door. The seats are real leather from an old check book scraped "wafer thin".

My new favorite thread! Some AWESOME builds in here :D

Only one I have pics of,built back when a newly released new tooled kit ('06 or '08 maybe?),lost to the house fire last year. Currently have another (stalled out,like every other project there) on the bench,kind-of a remake of this one but hopefully a bit better (this one wasn't my best work :P ).

I stumbled onto this thread and forum while searching for other 49 Mercs. Signed just to share!

This is a Revell kit. I built models when I was younger so this is one of the first models I've built in 15+ years.post-11958-0-95685600-1367856359_thumb.jpost-11958-0-29282800-1367856364_thumb.jpost-11958-0-04304800-1367856367_thumb.jpost-11958-0-97409800-1367856368_thumb.jpost-11958-0-63900500-1367856370_thumb.jpost-11958-0-94823900-1367856371_thumb.j

Amazing builds :wub:

Does any of those kits come with open trunk and doors original from box?

The stock roof AMT kit comes with an opening boot (trunk) lid but neither it nor the chopped top Revell kit come with opening doors.

BTW, the 5.0 Ford V8 from the Revell 32s drops into the chopped Merc like it was meant to be there.
