Beautifully executed model. Gorgeous. It looks like a period advertising photo. It has that "ideal representation" vibe to it.

What do you use as your background and reflective base in your black background shots?

No engine detail or chassis detail on this one. Like most of my builds, this is just a curbside model.

Wow! I love Mercury Cyclones. I had the pleasure of getting and building the exect same kit serval year back. I even painted mine red too. But, I went with a matching red interior. And even though mine turned out fairly nice, if looks no where as nice as yours Sven.

They were from the original kit.

Beautiful model. I also like the chrome steelies. They were the wheel of choice if you couldn't afford "mags" back in the day. I bet it was fun foiling the drip moldings! Nice work.

I use a piece of black plexiglass on top of a black cloth sweep as a back drop. I then place large white cards in front of the model so they reflect light back into the car.

Another beautiful model, Sean. Nobody does cleaner work than you. And I always preferred the 66 to the 67.

Can't decide whether you are a better builder than most or a better photographer than most. OK, the answer is BOTH. Great work.
