"Rea-a-a-al-l-y Big Sho-o-o-oe" in your best Ed Sullivan!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's something back from 1999, a 1950's ShoeBox
Done with a Paasche H Gun and cheap Enamels from the WalMart Aerosol aisle.

This was my first attempt at Body Mods and Stretches.
This is 4 HW ShoeBoxes (1950 Ford) and a HW Jaded (Hudson Hornet).

I had never done any Body Mods so I just jumped right in.
I purchased a Jewelers Saw, some JB Qwik and QuikSteel, and some thin Brass Plate.

Custom Jada Wire Wheels,

Hood scoop removed and hole filled in hood,
Nose is extended,
Armature wire flares the front 4 wheelwells,
Rear fender tips extended,
Wing removed from Jaded rear end and body filled,
Bases were fit together to make a stretched chassis,
3/4" in the middle of the car is Brass Plate and QuikSteel,
Joints filled with Milliput Putty White,

Airbrushed with cheap WalMart Aerosol and Cleared with Painter's Place Clear,
I flew to a Convention with this wrapped in a few Baggies.
The heat in the Airplane Baggage softened the Clear Enamel which took on all the wrinkles of the Baggies.
Left out in the sun for a couple of hours everything smoothed right out.
I went straight to using House Of Kolor and their durable Urethane Enamel ClearCoat.

Now that is awesome!

I think it may be a Henry J rear instead of a Hudson B)

Thanks Guys,
Yeah AZ you're right, I think the Hudson was that big bloated barge, those fins I think designate the Henry.
A great little HW casting in itself.

Thanks Guys,

The '50 Ford was one of the first HW's I did body mods on back around 2000.

Stay tuned for the next modded version of this subject!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
