Thanks!

Progress is slow, but I've been building this as a side of that Moebius' Tim Flock Chrysler, and today I managed to sand that putty area of the chassis smooth. However painting the chassis didn't go very well, and now I'm thinking about sanding it a bit and then try again, with different paint. Frame is also sprayed Gloss Black, and hopefully I can start building the axles soon.
Also sanded the body a bit, but few more mold lines to smoothen before primer.

Has everyone else finished their Hudsons?

Love that engine work. Beautiful.

Oh, I hope everyone saw Harry's thread, a call for pictures of finished Hornets over in the GENERAL area of the forum. Good luck, everyone.

Here we go again, Hudson is on all four wheels, after few problems (Not because of Moebius' great kit, just because of Würth spray paints). It looks pretty good, stance etc. I also glued the wheels so that they are bit turned, they just look good like that, I think.

Thanx, Stephen ;) !

Not too Fancy update, but just wanted to let you know, that body is now ready for paint. I'm waiting now for the paint, I should get it tomorrow, so hopefully it'll be in Blue soon. Then I must paint the white top, of course.
I have to move on to the interior too.

Actually, you might want to paint the white first, then the blue. ;) That'll make it a bit easier.

Yep, it might be easier like that. :D But I'll do the blue first, some how it's just my style and I'm used to it. For Example I painted red first on this '55 Chevy (1/32 Scale though) and then the white.
Don't know why I do it this way but it works okay, though. :lol:

There's nothing like Fresh paint job B) !

I started by taping the top, it will be painted white later on.

And here's the body with some blue on it, looks pretty good. In the picture, the paint is wet and it is not going to be that glossy when it's dry, but clearcoat and polishing will help.

Thanks, Ray! ;) The paint is made by Maston, and color code is 803. I don't know if you have Maston paints in USA, but here in Finland they are pretty easy to get, and they work well, too.

Made up a finned cylinder head for the '52 custom I'm working on now, and wired the ignition.
