1/25 MPC 1970 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler WIP
Posted by homeroV8 on Saturday, September 7, 2019 2:47 PM

I decided to dedicate a little time this weekend to this FoMoCo muscle I bought still sealed some time ago.

 

I was thinking about a kitbash with a Revell Torino chassis, engine and interior but will go otb insteadjust including door mirrors and handles.

I finished the sandpaper polishing sequence

 

 

and now things started to get interesting with Tamiya compound rubbing (coarse, medium and finish). A nice shine unfolding! Unfortunately primer bled through some sharp creases and need to be retouched later on.

Built a Grabber green Shelby with white interior.  Nice contrast.

Considering quad headlights were standard and much more common, I decided to make my own quad headlight grille. I drilled four holes and enlarged until measured diameter coincided with headlamps from a 71 Charger. i did moldings for the headlights using thin Evergreen styrene strips (will be sanded and painted with Molotow liquid later). The most difficult task was measuring where to start the initial drilling, these were tense  moments until dry fit measurements were tested.

Grille and headlamp changes will make this one stand out. Nice!

Nice work on the grill. It’s going to look cool.
