I just got my Hudson yesterday I'm going to do a rusted out version with the bumpers and everything inside of the car. I think I will just have the engine block with the hood setting on the roof or something. The car will be setting on three wheels and a concrete block (if I can find some in 1/25 scale) next to an old shed. Here is a picture of the look I'm going for, I will post pictures as I go along.

Sweeeeeeeeeeeet. B)
Another idea- cut open the trunk and stuff some of the spare engine parts in back.

I found some great reference pictures today I really like the one of the rear end and the missing drivers side door. I think that is what I'm going to do with mine.

There are a few customs in here, but I did go out of my way to dig up some crusty ones as well. B)

Let the air out! Ha Ha Ha

Okay, some have warmed up the tires and squished them down, others have sanded or filed them down. I don't have a proven method yet but I am sure someone here has. Dr. Cranky, what is your suggestion, oh wise one of the rust?

You might want to incorporate a little of both. The melting will at least simulate the flattened sidewall spreading out. But you want to be careful and not take it too far. It can look a little funny if not done properly.

Hi guys I'm finally back, I moved the first of January and just got things situated so that I can start modeling again. I had no place to work that was heated back during the winter but the weather is better here in Indiana now so I can get started on my rusty Hornet again. I will be keeping you all posted on how this build goes.

I simulated a flat tire (a long time ago) by placing a piece of tin foil in a frying pan, and press straight down. Try it on a scrap tire first. Can't remember if I used a non-stick spray on the foil.
