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

Never would have thought to look at Tamiya Military colors for a car.. Great looking model!

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!

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!

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.
Thanks for the information! I'll give those a try.

That is just superb Jason, I have this kit and if I can get it half as good as this Id be happy, love the detail and the colour choice.

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