The Hornet's Nest: Hudson Hornet Build Madness!
Posted 30 September 2011 - 05:02 PM
After I removed the 'paddles' from the kit wheels, I test fit one into a resin whitewall I had laying around.
Next up is removing the copyright engraving, up over where the rear axle goes-
And the other, up on top. Normally, this would not be visible unless you opened the trunk... so there's a clue for you as to one of the modifications I intend to make on mine.

Not sure if any of the trim or handles will join the Jimmy Hoffa and the mold lines just yet. Guess we'll see shortly.

Keep the eye candy coming, everyone. Let's see if by the time Halloween comes around (Wow, a Halloween Hornet Build!) we have a bunch of these suckers build to show Moebius what happens when they put out a new kit!

Here's the body in white primer looking pretty smooth . . .
The gas cap door comes as a separate part on this kit, so it could actually be glued open, but I didn't do it like that . . . (maybe the next one.)

I think the colors came out too loud, but I promised myself I would build this one start to finish, no matter what.
One thing I recommend doing if you are going to use the visor is to cut off the pins and then glue the thing down at the end . . .the pins are a bit fragile and will break off after a few tries at mocking it up . . . so save yourself the frustration . . .
Here's a nice smooth shot . . .
I still have to put a coat of dullcoat on the paint so that it's not so delicate . . .
Here's the last shot with a wheel and the front bumper just to get an idea of what it's going to look like . . .

Unfortunately I am Vergil
Huggy Bear and The Rooster (are you old enough to get the reference? LOL!) would be proud.
But I don't know about the other fellas

Well, I keep pushing it . . . since I wasn't crazy about the yellow and red . . . well, now I really like it and here's why!
The rub-on decals come from the Pine Car section of my LHS. Lots of new choices these days, very cool.
I think this one is finally headed in the right direction!
