Wow thanks for all of those great comments! ;)

 

Harry, Charlie and Chuck who mentioned the hood. Yes, it doesn't fit right. I should have sanded it a bit before painting, it had tight fit to match the body shapes, and after paint and few clear coats, it doesn't fit anymore. Oh well luckily this is displayed the hood open. :lol: And you are correct about the BMF too, I had new sheet of BMF and new blade, but I don't know what was the problem with them. Somehow I couldn't do better on this one, even if I've done better jobs with  BMF before.

 

Thanks again for the great comments to everyone, and especially thanks for the critique. It's really needed when trying to get better as a Modeler. B)

 

Edit: Oh and Jim, your builds are always very nice, I can't wait to see what you do with the Hudson. At least I guess it will be Shiny, which is always great.

Looking forward of seeing Geoff's build, too.

Very nice! Engine detail looks very nice and paint job is very good also. Nice Job! Maybe I have to do one Hudson hornet in future too. :rolleyes:

Niko... congratulations to you for asking for and accepting critiques. You "get it" as far as how a forum can work to make us all better modelers. Thanks for posting this one... we all look forward to your next one!

Real nice. Engine compartment and interior are done very well !  Also thanks for letting us know you thought it was a good kit. Might have to get one.

Thanks guys for the kind words!

 

Matti: Yes, I'd like to see a Hudson from your bench. I'm sure it would turn out fantastic.

 

Harry: I've always wanted to hear critique too. Positive comments are nice to hear, but critique is what makes me doing things different next time. :)  The next build from my bench will possibly be a Drag Car, or Stock Car from '50s or '60s... I'm planning also to start the Fabulous Hudson Hornet Stock Car soon.

 

John: It's really worth buying. The boxart is already very nice, and once the box is opened, all of the parts are really nice quality, especially the chrome parts are great. Instructions are the best I have seen, too.

Thanks Niko - I will pick up one of these sometime. Sounds like it builds nice. Your recommendation for this kit is appreciated. I had eyeballed this one before. Definite purchase in the not too distant future I'm sure.

Very clean, nice build. Maybe my daughter has gotten me to watch the movie cars too much, but I just want to say "Doc, is that you?!"  :)

Yeah, when I saw the Movie, that Doc Hudson was one of the nicest cars in it. :D

That's beautiful build Niko! I want to build one "Lead Sled" style.

 

I'm definitely not a "rivot counter", but I gotta say, if it represents a "Factory Stock" car, I'm pretty sure it shouldn't have a clear coat. Clear coats weren't used on production cars in the 50's. Possibly the very high dollar cars but not general public cars. I hope you don't mind my saying :rolleyes:

Thanks Marty! ;)

 

I'm planning to build one Custom version of this kit at some point in the future. Gasser would be nice to build too, to match '60s Gasser Rules.

 

And thanks for the information about the clear coat! :)

 

I can't get the rest of my text in here, somehow it won't post it. The rest is on the next post.

 The reason why I always clear coat, is that it makes it much easier to get that correct shine to the paint job. It makes Polishing easier, too. And since Hornets were shiny from the factory, I think it's not too critical mistake. :) Do you guys see if the model is clear coated or not? :blink:

 

I know I can't :D .
