Scale I Build

  1. Hi there ! Here is my last build, a '73 Mercury Cougar. Rusty, missing parts, should be a nice project car The kit is from AMT, 1/25 scale.
  2. Well, I think it has yet to be stated if the Hurst mag wheels shown on the box top drawing will be included, but fingers crossed Round2 sees fit to tool up an all-new set for this (and other) reissues.
  3. My Daughter gave me this kit one Christmas a decade or so ago. I cannot understand why Revell equipped this classic woodie with only a Cadillac engine. But so be it. After taking some of these today, I discovered a few things I neglected to do (as is my habit, hurrying to get the next kit started) See if you can spot them. You may find more than I did ! 🥴 help me out!
  4. Finished up January 9th, this one is painted Tamiya TS-23 Light blue with testors Nassau blue interior. Built box stock. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  5. Started early this year, I have it painted Tamiya TS-19 Metallic Blue with Testors Nassau blue interior. I used the wood grain decals from the 65 Lincoln convertible for the door panels. Kens fuzzy fur for the carpet. Stock-ish engine, I denoted an aftermarket intake by painting the stock one aluminum :-) Basically I have chrome trim to do and final assembly to get this one done.
  6. James2

    64 Park Lane

    I found this on ebay pretty molested. Stripped, dechromed, smoothed and covered in MCW clear Purple and Blue over Light Gun Metal and topped with Pearl Clear.
  7. Painted Testors Dark Cherry with wet look clear. Thanks for looking and all comments welcomed.
  8. One that I picked up today, 1963 Mercury Marauder annual kit, set the way back machine to 1963! More box pictures, box contents, and instructions at this link: AMT 1963 Mercury Marauder Annual
  9. I was going to wait a bit before I started this but, the urge was too strong!. Here it is with the beginning coats of Tamiya TS-19 Metallic Blue. Engine is almost done. And the stock wheel covers are done. Now, believe it or not, I also scored a 65 Merc with the custom pieces on it. My plan is to redo the custom with the newer custom pieces from the kit I just got. Here are some pics the seller posted on evil bay. Thanks for looking!
  10. Just got this one Box contents and instruction pictures at the link: http://carmodelingcorner.com/KitReviews/AMT_1965_Mercury_Parklane.htm
  11. Hi folks, I finished the Eliminator yesterday. It was a bit of a fight, especially as far as the body color is concerned. I learnt that yellow is one tough color to get a good result in. Here come the images, hope you like it:
  12. Here is a little project I started a couple of weeks ago. Managed to get some work done on the frame, engine, & interior. Here's a closer shot of the Mercury V-8: Here's sort of where I'm going with this: I think I'll skip the eyes, though.
  13. Missing Link trans-kit using Revell 1970 Ford Torino Built to represent stock besides tweaked suspension and copy of the Gone in 60 Seconds 67 Mustang GT500 wheels. Thanks for looking,some pictures,taked during some heavy fog.
  14. Hi Guys, I haven't put a build on here for a while so I thought I'd post some pics of a project I completed today.
  15. Whoopiekat has a decal set for the Sandy Elliot Drag Team Mercury pickup. They include Sandy Elliot, Ford,Lincoln and Mercury graphics. Also included are the hood, tailgate letters and the Mercury 100 emblems for the 1967 & 68 Mercury trucks. I believe from what another forum member told me that the hood and tailgate letters are the same from 1965-1968. The side Mercury 100 emblems on the 1965/66 are different though. So we will be able to do 65/66's when Moebius gets them to us! Dennis
  16. https://whulsey.smugmug.com/Cars/2016-10-01-Sanderson-All-Ford-Show/ Here's from last year show that I just got uploaded. At least a couple of weeks before this year's show.
  17. I'm looking for aftermarket or kit sources for putting wide performance tires on a 49 mercury...but with a wide whitewall. It's a custom build with a turbo Porsche V-10, so I'm talking mini-tub width on the rear...but I don't want the super skinny sidewall like you'd see on most performance tires. But I also don't want the high sidewall look like stock...somewhere in between. Everything I can find (kit or aftermarket) is either wide tread and skinny sidewall, or enough sidewall but narrow tread. I am toying with cutting a pair of leftover kit tires down to make one wider tire, and then cast it, but it isnt going well. Any thoughts? Here's sort of the look I want...not too much sidewall, but enough for the stripe... What I DON'T want...
  18. Hello, Posting some pics of my '65 Cyclone for reference since we hopefully will see this model soon from Mobius. If there is something specific you'd like to see, I'd be more than happy to try and capture it for you. I do not have any pics of the stock wheel covers on it.They are 14", which no longer fit my current 15" wheels. Regard's,Myron_
  19. My 1st woody! Revell did a good job on this kit. It's really nice to build. Lowered and riding on Pegasus chrome reverse wheels. The nose decal doesn't fit the raised letters, as it's too short. So I cut up the decal and applied the letters one at a time: I put an Aloha garland in there,,, nearly forgot the chassis: I hope you like it Comments appreciated + or -
  20. I know a lot of you guys will have built either this, or the chopped version, so you'll know how nice this kit goes together. Anyone who's wondering if they should build one; Do yourself a favour and buy this kit. I've been used to old kits and re-pops of old kits, where the tooling is dodgy. But this is like a Tamiya kit in its engineering and moulding. The decals are also some of the best I've ever used. That said, the review in ModelCars Mag, proved to be very useful, especially when highlighting symmetry issues on the front end. All of the following photos are from my phone, so please excuse the quality. Body issues dealt with. Rattle-can primer. One of my favourite parts of building a kit, is the engine. I added a rudimentary attempt at a fuel system (it looks ok to the naked eye). I made the fuel filter from clear sprue, tinted with a yellow and silver Sharpie. I drilled out the kit distributor and added plug wires. The coil was about to be added after this photo I decided to make the Woody more 'surf'. So I gave it hibiscus upholstery . Here's the rear seats too The engine got some wires to the alternator and a basic throttle linkage. These Caddy engines are nice to detail.
  21. This is my version of the Revell '49 Mercury. I Love this kit because of all the options & the excellent fitment. I always strive to get nice shiny paint jobs on my builds so I thought I'd try something new & go with flat black. I still couldn't resist the urge to BMF the windows. The paint is Walmart grey primer & flat black with Testor's Dullcoat on top to seal & dull out the decals. I had some various Slixx decals in my stash so I made this into a hotrod shop car. I wanted the flat exterior with a nice looking interior & engine. Thanks for looking.
  22. hey every body new project about to start this cyclone gt . have a few ideas . wanting to try a rusty finish . thinking may go Gasser on this not sure yet . dont know about colors and rims etc maybe army green . may also do an engine swap from the 390 to something else a gasser build needs something poking thru the hood i think. we,ll see all comments are welcome
  23. Hello folks, My name is Myron. I occasionally spend time here for ideas and inspiration.I don't get too much time to build between work and family life. I have been a clay sculptor with Ford Motor Co. for 22 years. I currently work in digital format. I currently own a 1965 Mercury Comet Cyclone. I collect Schwinn Muscle bikes as well. Looking forward to posting a few builds I've done,or are in progress. Regard's,Myron_
  24. Hello modeling friends! This is is the Revell Mercury kit that's pretty amazing. From the building options to the excellent easy fitting parts. I built this kit as a gift for my brother who is an Auburn University graduate. Here is a list of the things I added or changed to the model. A lot of the ideas I got for the car came from all you guys wonderful builds. Hope there's no hard feelings!! -blended the front bumper -cut the B pilar out -smoothed the fire wall and molded in wires -wired the spark plug wires, battery, colant overflow, alternator, oil filter, and fuel lines. -upgraded to a 12v system with a new battery and alternator with custom bracket -added the clear steering wheel, metal springs up front, air cleaner and resin valve covers -paint and clear are duplicolor auto lacquer Thanks for looking and model on!!!
