Moebius Hudson Hornet.
Just about done. Just needs final cleaning and radio antenna installed. Had to make a new one.

Paint is Tamiya xf-21 Sky and xf-2 white. Dupont clear.
Interior is Testors enamel flat green and Tamiya xf-2 white.
All the chrome is Alclad and trim is BMF.

Since i didnt do a work in progress post here are a few more pics.

I added throttle linkages and return springs, fuel lines , heater line , plug wires, masking tape belt , battery cables, and brake lines at the wheels. I also added valve stems to the wheels.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around that color being referred to as "sky", but what a period-perfect shade.  My compliments also on your engine detailing as well as your BMF & Alclad work.  I hope we'll see more from you soon.

Thanks guys!!! Monty im not sure where that color name came from. I know its used in the interior of Tamiyas JGSDF light armored vehicle which is why i originally bought it. When i got the Hudson kit the paint was still on my workbench and i just had to use it.

I was wondering about that, too. Figured it was a typo, but if not, that's a pretty odd "sky" color!

Maybe the sky is green in Japan?  ^_^

 

Regardless of what they call that color, it looks perfect on a '50s era car.
