Well, I’ve done it again, I’ve completed another model and this was a fun one. I don’t normally do cars, but this kit was too cool to pass up. It is a custom 49 Mercury. The kit many special parts to really make it your own.

So I painted mine flat black. The kit came with several pinstripe decals. I went these white ones and there are more on the hood as well. It doesn’t show too well but there are 59 Cadillac taillights on there.

There were two choices of hood, I chose this cool louvred version. The wheels are white walls with Cadillac ‘sombrero’ covers. There are lakes pipes, because they are awesome.

The engine bay is furnished with Chevrolet v8 that has a triple carb setup.

The interior is in a classic red and white. This turned out fantastic. I hand painted all the tiny buttons and knobs with chrome paint to pull off a really good period look. The model also came with a little trophy, as our little rebel friend is happily showing us.

And now for the mini haul. I heard target had a sale so I checked it out and got some good stuff.

I got this awesome custom FJ. As this and Chevrolet’s ZR2 concept show us, this is a great color combo.

I got a 90 Acura NSX. Not much to say but it is a nicely detailed model.

Gulf ZR1. What more needs to be said?

And finally the Great Gatspeed. The black is really sparkly, and it looks very similar to Cadillac’s Black Diamond Tricoat. The main reason I got it was the logo because this resides in my garage
