AMT 1967 Mercury Comet Model Kit

Mercury V8 Comet


This is the AMT 1967 Mercury Comet kit.

At first I thought this model might be based off the AMT 1966 Ford Fairlane kit they've had for many years. But this kit is completely different. I don't think they share any parts at all.

Assembly is straight forward. The engine compartment is built from four different main parts, a feature I don't really care for, though a lot of newer kits are made this way.

There are no extra parts that I saw. Rather than go with just a straight build, I dded wheels from the Revel Foose Pickup kit, and used parts of the engine from that kit as well.

The chrome was really nice in my example. The bumpers were easy to mount, unlike many other car kits I've built, where most are just to fiddly.

I painted the car a Testors Light Blue. (an enamel color).

The interior is Tamiya White (with light blue accents).

The figure is one from Hasegawa, one of the several sets they make with two female figures. I painted her dress to match the car's color.

This is a good kit to build. Especially if you want to swap the wheels or other parts to make it in your own style.
