Here are some pics of my Revell 49 Merc. I removed the drip rails and added some trim with some .060 half round. I also made a front roll pan. The paint is duplicolor perfect match stellar blue pearl and artic white covered with duplicolor clear all from the spray can. I have wired the engine and given it a black wash. I may do fuel lines and throttle linkage.

Almost done. I removed the molded in battery for a smoother underhood. I also replaced the molded cable on the drivers side with a piece of wire and BMF clamps. Also did BMF clamps on the radiator hose. I made grab handle for the seat backs out of half round styrene flattened on each end. Thanks for looking. All comments welcome.

Really nice...paint looks fanstatic, and the grab handles are just one of those overlooked details that add so much. :)
