I don't expect that there has ever been a model kit of the 1937 Hudson Terraplane pickup - a fairly rare bird - but is there any other truck (or car) kit that can be used to get close to the Terraplane shape? I know that one company produces an HO scale of the vehicle but I want something larger (e.g., 1/24).

 

A secondary question would then be: Is the creation of a scratchbuilt, fairly elaborate, grill very difficult to accomplish? The Terraplane's grill is its most important feature. Attached File  Terraplane1.jpg   176.96KB   14 downloads

The distinctive grille is made in resin by a member here, although he hasn't posted in awhile...
