Modified 51 Mercury

Post by Gabosamu on Wed 14 Jan 2015, 8:30 am

I had this Mercury 51 from Jada and decided to modify it, it took me about a month with one or two daily hours, I made an engine transplant from a CTS cadillac that my son beated up from the outside, also took the center console, from a Toyota MR2 took the dashboard, seats, speakers, stereo, steering wheel, got some other parts from electronics, common wire, most of the mods were scrath built, the wheels are from a Toyota Celica, the decals some were taken from a Macross Valkirie, some from another Macross 1/144 model and others from a Rockstar Promo Sticker.

looks good and it's a wild looking interior.
you can get better results with a camera by using extra lights. more light the better.

I absolutely love the look of this car!... low, mean & nasty looking,
but in my opinion, I do think, & sorry for the negative criticism, you kind of overdid
the decal work on the outer body work.
I don't mean to offend you, modelling friend, but it would have looked  fantastic,
but with all those decals splashed around, it really kinda spoiled a great looking build.
Great work anyway "Gabosamu"... Mean Machine!

You´re absolutely right I realized that I added too many decals after I finished it, but I kept it that way to remember my "mistake", I also have some 1/24 on plastic with a loooot of mystakes that I prefered to not correct to keep in mind those ones too.

Keep up the hard work too!
