49 Merc Die Cast Custom
These are ERTL's 1/18 scale 49 Mercury die cast models. The black stock and the candy red custom are as I bought them, the other one was the purple with the so called flames on it that ERTL sold, and I hated the way it looked. So... Needless to say, I redid it. Bumpers have been removed, the hood is pancaked, headlights frenched, I molded the top grill section and turned it upside down for the grill opening, with a floating bar grill, taillights are from my parts box and they to have been frenched. It's painted with a white pearl with a grape pearl fade, and a clear pearl coat over it, the fade didn't turn out exactly the way I wanted, oh well, it different now.
