I bought this Hudson kit back in January, and finally built it. I held off building it because I feared a BMF nightmare, but it turned out to be easier than I thought. I foiled it all in about four hours. The paint is Krylon Fusion maroon and black, based on a photo I saw of a real Hudson. The paint went on smooth, but the wet look clear came out a bit lumpy, very noticeable on the hood in the second photo. I'm not sure why.
This is a great kit - beautifully packaged, great instructions, everything fits, and the box art should be framed and hung on a museum wall! These photos were taken in two of my dioramas.
I enjoyed this build. I hope you guys like it too.
