The 1949 Lincoln Cosmopolitan convertible with some fine touches included.

Right now I've been packing, because early tomorrow we're headed for the NC coast.  North Carolina is a beautiful state, with mountains in the west where we live and sandy beaches on the east where we vacation.  In between is the piedmont, where people make the money that enables the east and west to remain successful livable areas.  Well, it works here anyhow.   But right now I'm leaving this Lincoln in a prominent spot so that when I return in two or three or so weeks I will see it and remember that I should really try to touch up that dashboard that is so exposed.  Looks like fun!  I may even try cleaning up my chrome application of some years ago.

I have this one too and yes, it's a beauty!

I have mine displayed next to this one and they look great together, especially the complementary color combos:

@d-m-holcombe: Here's a dashboard and interior that I just finished working on. It's a 1949 ,not a Lincoln but in the Ford/Lincoln/Mercury family. I will have pictures of the finished car next week.

For dashboard or interior details just do a Google search for 1949 Lincoln Cosmopolitan dashboard,  you will get dozens and dozens of images to check out.  I use these type searches often in my custom modeling work.

I should really try to touch up that dashboard

That model looks fantastic with the many enhancements it obviously already has David.

I was stationed in North Carolina in the mid eighties while serving the the Marine corps.....in hindsight, I should have stayed down there after my discharge.

I very much dislike it here in Massachusetts for its bad weather, rude people and ultra bad politics (politicians reward those who don't work and punish those that do work).

We own 2 homes up here and are seriously considering moving down to the Carolinas.

@john-quilter. I recall that Neo did a 1949 Lincoln in black but I have never seen one in white or blue. Are they repaints or did you scratch build them? Your work is so good that I can never tell.

Thanks, yes, my stuff keeps everybody guessin'   These are customs from Eligor items made for the Tintin series.   The blue one is a two door sedan (coupe) and the white one a notchback sedan.    Both repaints from the Tintin color with details added.
