Great color choices, including the slightly-darker interior color.  And that horn emblem glistens!  A great detail.

So I believe you airbrushed that Tamiya paint on the Hudson? How did it work? What did you use to make the paint thinner? I've been planning on trying those Tamiya Acrylics with an airbrush, but I I haven't tried them yet...

 

Anyway that's a Fantastic looking Hudson! The color fits perfectly on it, and your BMF work is super sharp. I also like the engine, it looks like it could be fired up any moment. This is one of the best Hudson Hornets that I've seen, congrats!

W-409 i thin the Tamiya acrylics with regular lacquer thinner. Works and sprays great. The Tamiya paints are unique acrylics that can be thinned with everything from lacquer thinner to iso alcohol and their own x-20a thinner.

Stunning Jason! A very nice build. As others have noted, the color is great. In fact, everything you did on this kit is great. Page 3 in comments in less than one day of posting. Should tell you something.

Yowsa, that is nice!  

 

BTW, the color known as "Sky" is a British WWII/50's airplane color. It is, in fact, green.

My uncle was president of The Hudson Club of America for quite some time, so I have been around Hudsons most of my life.  I have to say, you nailed the details and colors!  Fantastic job!

Did you clear coat the paint? If yes, what did you use? Tamiya acrylic?

 

Thanks
