Here is a progress report on the Mercury guys. I added some fender skirts and applied some resin rivets:







I also added some door armor as well:



I used a Testor's Metalizer Laquer for my primer coat:




Pre-shading has been applied and it's ready for the base coat of paint:




Thanks for looking and see ya soon. ;D

I see that the Mercury is headed off in a different direction than just a straight up car build...

It looks great!
Probably one can't see too much of the interior, but it it looks a tad bit clean compared to the exterior.
a pile of empty beer cans on the floor would do nicely. ;D
Love the creativity!

Yea, the interior is a little clean. It can't be seen at all in person. Love the beer can idea. ;D
