The Top of My Hornet is painted White. It turned out pretty good, but when I took masking tapes off, I saw that there had been little "Leak" and now I need to do little fixing with blue paint. Luckily that white paint will be covered mostly with BMF, only little blue paint touch is needed. I will clearcoat the body soon.

Thanx, Stephen. Color combo fits perfectly to this car, that's why I had to keep it, even if the boxart has same color scheme on it. Usually I paint my models with different color than the box art.

Anyway, here is the body clearcoated. It turned out pretty good. Now I have to fix those little paint leaks, I didn't want to do it before clearcoat, because I wasn't sure if the clear would react with Blue Enamel Paint... So, it can be done after clear, too. Then polishing and BMF, this should be Done Soon!

And now for something the complete opposite of shiny and pretty. Well, that's what it'll be eventually...

Thanks guys! It's shiny, but not so smooth-after polishing it will be beautiful. Anyway I'm having bit hurries, and it will take some time to get back on the Hudson, maybe a week or so.

Chuck, nice job on the Convertible! Will watch this very closely.

It's probably only what a Hudson really deserves, Chuck. I'll stand beside ya when others get fired up and in a rage. :D

That is some fantastic weathering and rusting, Mr. Most. You are taking no prisoners. Love it.

Interior is mostly dialed in on the abandoned Hornet droptop.

I cut off the front of the dash and replicated the framework behind it. I also made up new side panels.

And then I filled out the interior with some assorted debris, the kind of stuff you'd find in a junkard car with no seats. I've noticed such vehicles tend to become makeshift storage sheds of sorts under those kinds of circumstances.

This has been on a hold for a while, but I'm back at it! Now this time it will get finished, I'll promise. ;)  I finished the interior, dashboard is painted body color and foiled and decaled. I found no problems with putting this interior together, and this interior is really easy to make look good.
