Brand name of kit(s): Revell ’49 Mercury
Information:
I used the Revell ’49 Mercury kit. I converted the body to a convertible. Used wheels and tires out of Revell’s ’57 Chevy California Wheels kit. The paint is Testor’s Blazing Black as a base and Testors Transparent Blue over it, with four coats of clear. I added a wired distributor to the engine and dice on the mirror to give it the finishing touches I thought it needed.
