So I have not touched a model car in years. I used to build them when I was a child during the summer. I did enjoy it but never really painted them. Just build and play with them. I do not have any to show though as moving over the years has taken its toll and I no longer have a lot of cars I once had.

Last week, I was in a Michael's Arts & Crafts store and looked at the models. I saw the '49 Mercury and I just had to build it. I finally opened it up Sunday and got to work. I finished everything Monday night after work. All the paint is stuff that I had already and the little stuff is painted with paint markers and Sharpies. It is a mix between the two options they give you to build. I did enjoy building again and it was nice to do little things on it for me.

Hope you guys enjoy. Any tips and criticism is welcome. I am working on a '32 Ford 5 window Coupe now which I should have done tonight or tomorrow. Pics of that will follow.

The Merc was a fun build. I say do it.

Here are some shots of the '32 Ford 5 Window Coupe. I had fun with this one also. Took me a little longer than the Merc though. It went together pretty well, no real issues with this.
I tried something on the front grille and it did not come out as I planned. I will get to redoing it at some point, but for now, it is done. While not perfect, I did learn a few more things. Anyway, enjoy, and criticism welcome.

I took a ton of pics while building the '32, if you would like to see the album: http://s246.beta.photobucket.com/user/wrxracer519/library/Model Cars

My next one is a '68 Dodge Charger. It may be a week or two to get this one done as work is going to busy and I am heading out to spend the day working on my real car :)
Here is the box and a pic of the motors and body/chasis next to the Merc and Ford.
