Looks great Al, looks like you have mastered Tamiya paints. Mine is hopefully on its way from the US, can't wait to start on it :rolleyes:

Beautiful build Al, you nailed the 1:1 vibe of this car. What did you use for the chrome? That front bumper looks like real chrome!

Thank you,

This model is box stock. I did add The Detailer black to the grill.

No. Same engine as 49 Merc Custom

That's what I was afraid of :(

I want to build one, but that means I'll have to get a AMT Merc to subtract the engine from.

I got the Revell Merc as a present, and it was useless for me. The top came already chopped, Cadillac engine, etc. And I'm a factory stock kind of guy. Even when I build a Custom, I try to build something that could be converted back into a factory stock car in real life.

I know it's kind of odd from me, but that's how my mind works.

Even my 1:1 Galaxie has some customization like different wheel covers, and chrome dressing on the engine, but I can get her back to 100% dealer stock in about a day work.

Thanks everyone. I was going to do this in Maroon, but when I saw this blue, I just knew this was it.

Tamiya does some very cool colors that are spot on to this kind of cars. It's my favorite modeling paint for sure.

The way your Merc got so perfect, looks like you got the hang of it too!!

By the way, are you using any primer, or are you painting on bare plastic? I do just that with Tamiya non metallic paints.

I never use primer when using Tamiya of Testors Lacquers. I love using Tamiya's sprays, they always come out beautiful.

Sweet looking woody. Great looking paint. Can't believe it's not clear coated or polished. Nice job.

You really nailed it Al, and in record time again! I like Tamiya sprays too but they never shine like that for me without a good deal of polishing.
