The first thing I completed last year, and probably the nicest fitting kit I've ever done. I was trying to copy a restored car I found pics of.

Nice Hudson. You did a great job on it!

 

is it possible, that the rear window is not fitting correct? I had the same problems (perhaps too much color and BMF?), so i cutted the sidewindows of and placed them for their own.

Great to see you here Darcy. I think you will be happy with the members and administration here. Love the color scheme you've applied to your Hudson. A beautiful model with outstanding attention to the details. Hoping to see many more posts from you in the future...along with your builds and unique writing style. Fury3

Nice! Great color scheme and foil work. I built one of those and foiling it took some time! Excellent work!
