Well I got the design done and painted on mine. Just need to wait for the paint to dry and then pinstripe the scallops.

Gonna look awesome once the scallops are striped. :D

Put the wraps on the '53 pickup variant this morning-

Now it looks like I'll switch back to the '52, and maybe start another custom version, this one being quite a bit more extreme than the first two.

Mr cranky are you going to save a compilation of all the completed builds for an under glass thread?

Mark, that's a great idea!

And Todd, the Scalloped Hudson, well, what can I say? It's wonderful, and I look forward to seeing it done.

Okay here is the bumpers for the Hudson . I used the kit ones and removed the Bumper gaurds and smoothed them out. I then used Alclad to chrome them. I may wait and get the smoothed bumpers from ModelHaus.

Hey! I want in on this! I have the engine complete. Did the lowering on all suspension bits. Fabbed the front for posable wheels. Shortened the wheelbase so the rear tires (should) line up with the rear skirts. Still have to pick a color for the topside, chassis all set. I'll post progress pics soon.
Oh, on part #29... "trap the exhaust and driveshaft in between frame and crossmember part #29". Well, you can if you want just glue that small crossmember to the floorpan. It has locating pins for that. That way you don't have the d-shaft & exhaust flapping all over the place as you line it all up and add glue. Just set down the two parts on top of floor & crossmember, and glue frame to floor. I have pics of that also.

Green '52 is going to need a complete body repaint (long story) but I'm hoping to at least get started in the interior within the next couple of days.

Looking great, everyone. Some wonderful builds in progress. Pure eye candy, as we like to say around here.

Are there any photos of the Modelhaus steel wheels for this kit? I am considering a set for my Tim Flock '52 that I am going to build into Marshall Teague's car.

Todd's Hudson Came out Beautiful! Especially I like those scallops, they look very good on that body.

Finally an Update for my Hudson project.
There were some text molded to the chassis, and I had to remove them. After that I placed some putty there, and all left to do is sanding, and primer. Engine is almost finished, only exhaust manifold extension part is missing. I added some mesh to the air cleaners, and installed them. Oil Filter is also glued. Last thing I did for today, was primering the frame. Today I'm going to paint it gloss black.

I'm real surprised to see no one has opened some rear wheel openings.

I believe these look strange with a wells cut out. If I recall correctly the tires ( axel ) are not really lined up with the opening. Aren't the rear wheels set back farther than the wheel wells in the rear ?
