|This easy to build replica of Mercury's only station wagon for 1949 requires a bit of sanding and fitting during the assembly process along with some skill at painting. If you feel like doing a bit of super-detailing, you can scratchbuild a sunvisor like the one shown and since it was an 8 passenger wagon you could fabricate the rear seat in the up position.

Chemical Cleanup Needed!
Your kit will have already received a 24 hour Bleche-Wite soaking and final detergent scrub & rinse and all the extraneous flash will have been removed. All that you have to do is the final sanding & fitting, prime and paint the the body the color of your choice!
And here's the clean-up process in detail...
In the first step all Flash is removed using sanding sticks and various grinding tools, then, after rinsing the sanding dust off, we soak your kit components in a vat of Bleche-Wite for a minimum of 24 hours.
After the Bleche-Wite soak, the components are rinsed and placed in a tub filled with soapy water and scrubbed using a tooth brush to get into all the nooks and crannies. Last but not least, a fresh water rinse removes the soap residue after which the parts are dried using lint free paper towels.
You can use Alclad, for a really great chrome-like finish on the bright-work components of the kit, send them out for plating, or fight with BMF to do the job. Personally, I'd go with the Alclad finish. It's available in spray cans or for use in an air brush.
So many of you have asked where I get the different sizes of sanding sticks I use to clean up my kits, I thought I'd enclose a set of the 3 sizes I find handiest with each order.
AND...because it seems like every time you need it, either you can't find it, you're out or it's all dried up, I'm enclosing a tube of the Crazy Glue I use with each kit.
This glue is great if you're like me and have a reaction to most brands of the stuff. I've got emphysema and bronchitis and this glue doesn't affect my breathing. The fumes don't bother my eyes either, a real bonus if you're eyes aren't what they used to be.
