Just finished my First build for 2013, A Hudson Hornet! Moebius Models' kit is really excellent quality, and I enjoyed building this one a lot. It's built Factory stock, painted and clearcoated with Spray cans and then I polished the paint job to make it shine. Well, overall it turned out Okay, could be better, but this is the best I could do. Tell me what you think and give all kinds of feedback: Good or Bad.

 

WIP Pictures can be found from Community Builds Section from Hudson Hornet Build Madness Topic.

A nice, clean, SHINY :) :) :)   build. Niko.  I started my hornet yesterday.  It won't look anything like yours, though.  I'm building it as a custom.

My critique:

 

Pros: Overall, it looks very good. Paint looks good, underhood detail is outstanding, interior and dashboard detail is also very well done (that steering wheel hub looks like the real thing!).

 

Cons: You should have worked the hood to get a better fit before you painted, and some of your foil work is a bit ragged along the edges (always use a sharp blade!).

 

Overall, I say well done! It looks beautiful, and is definitely a model you can be proud of!  B)

Nice job on that, Niko. I was wondering a little about the hood, but overall, you did a very credible job on this one.

the finish of the paint is very fitting for a 50's car.

Might wanna adjust those hood hinges. :)

Other than that, she's pretty close to perfect.
