I always dreamed of building up one of the few Hubleys I had as a kid, like you did here, but back then it was more about playing with them instead of painting them. Probly didin't have the money for paint either. As I remember, they were always gifts from me parents, or someone. Maybe 20 years ago I did get me a Vicky and a pickup. Almost started on the pu, but wound up selling it or giving it away. Did build up the Vicky and painted it nicely maroon for me Mom. Going to see her tomorrow-- I'll hafta take another look at it. Like you say, tons of flash, and funny how the kit included a file for smoothing all the parts down.
I don't know ifn' you're a sucker for punishment---there's just something about a Hubley Good job!

I think the re-issued kits were even heavier than the originals with all the extra flash! Terrific job on that, as I've had some experience with these kits. Also, the original kits were manufactured nearby from where I live. The red wheels really set off the body color. Looks great!
The amount of flash at the begining was terrible as well!

I remember TRYING to build one of those as a kid, and failing miserably. Was given an Ertl re-issue of the Packard roadster a few years ago and, let's just say, my Dremel tool got a major work out dealing with the flash. If there's ever a next time I'll get some Tamiya metal primer and a new set of diamond needle files as a start.
