I am almost done with my '65 Merc Cyclone.  I forgot to take some pictures while I was assembling the Cyclone.  Just a few more pieces and decals to add, so here's a few pictures to whet your appetite...

More to come...

Thank  you Lee!  Keep on modeling!  

I have finished my '65 Cyclone.  I would like to thank all those who have taken the time to view and to comment on my WIP.

That interior shot looks like the real thing.

I found the kit to be a mixed bag.  The interior seats are like those from an old AMT kit with the seats mounting directly to the interior floor.  The front suspension is chunky and clunky.  No brake or fuel lines on the chassis.  The wheel openings seem small to me or else the wheels and tires are too large?  The shifter ball is too large.  Bumpers are located by pins that go from the fenders to holes in the bumpers.  The model sits too high.  I thought it was an okay kit, but it could have been better.
