Alterscale is pleased to announce the production of the newest and final model outboards in its vintage Mercury series, the 1956 Mercury Mark 30H!  $189.97 + $14. S&H.   This is a LIMITED COLLECTOR’S EDITION!  The model has been produced in two color variations: Sunset Orange cowl with sand tan lower unit and Sarasota Blue cowl with sand tan lower unit.   The Sunset Orange version is limited to 275 models; and the Sarasota Blue version is limited to 150 models.  Now you can add one of the most classic vintage 1950’s outboard models ever made to your collection.  The model will be in 1:8 scale, a full 5 inches tall.  Detail like this has never been seen in a scale model outboard. The fabulous four-cylinder powerhead is duplicated in every detail; a miniature medallion is on the face plate; the pull cord handle and choke pull are on the top cowl. The pull cord actually “pulls” and auto retracts just like the real outboard.  All models come in a decorated collectible box.  As an added PLUS, this edition includes Mercury’s  “Mercury Legends” shield on the stand, which commemorated their 65th anniversary in 2004.

How did we do it?   Mercury Marine has once again opened its archive of stored outboards for Alterscale’s technical experts and  model makers.  We measured every bolt, screw and casting of an actual 1956 Mark 30H.  The clamp tightening grip even has the correct molded ridges. The propeller is chromed.  And yes, of course, the “wrap around” cowl segment removes to display the powerhead and the model has an operating electric propeller!  The stand houses batteries which operate the propeller action.  Get ready to enjoy the memories!

You could expect no less from Alterscale.
