One of the few automobile kits I have built. Very cheap little kit but I enjoyed it, so here she is.

Very nice. Did you build it OOB? It looks to have some decent detail for a kit of it's vintage. Open wheel racers from the 40s and 50s are great modeling subjects.

It was reboxed under Smer, never knew it was Merit, do they do many more cars?

Merit did quite a few racers, the Alfa and the Talbot-Lago are the only ones with engine detail.
