49 Mercury led sled

Post by dv8v8 on Mon 12 Jun 2017, 1:53 pm

This 49 Merc was built from a number of kits/parts, the body is a fiberglass resin from Northcoast Hobbies (Jaymar) the chassis, bonnet and interior is from AMT's 49 Merc, the wheels are Pegasus, the RHD Dash is from KP Conversions (thanks Kerry) and the rest of the parts are from my parts box, including a 427 Cammer, that was a tight fit!

Slick looking modern kustom. I like the letters picked out in chrome on the hood. Not traditional in a kustom, but a very cool effect. That resin chopped body is a nice one. What is/was Northcoast Hobbies and did/do they make fibreglas aftermarket bodies? For slot cars? 1/25th obviously in this case.

Northcoast Hobbies was a new name for a company originally called Jaymar, they made a number of Australian bodies and a few American types, as far as i know they were all made of fiberglass, havent seen or heard anything from this company for at least 15 years heres a couple more of their products
