Lowering Moebius Hudson Hornet
BadJuju posted a topic in WIP: Model CarsI've built models off & on since I was a kid, but now I'm retired, I can put effort into modifying them. Here is how I'm lowering a Moebius 1952 Hudson Hornet coupe. The technique should work on any of their kits that share this chassis. I'm lowering the rear 3mm & the front 5mm, to also achieve some rake. I plan to use the chrome steelies from the convertible kit, which I also have. I'll show the rear, which is as far as I've gotten, then add the front later. Hope this post is useful to folks & comments are welcome. First, I notched 3mm from the frame rails to raise the rear axle relative to the body. Then, I cut out a portion of the floor to clear the driveshaft, and another to provide clearance for the differential. I added styrene sheet to fill in the holes. Finally, I added 3mm tall blocks to the leaf springs, made from square styrene tube. This mod provides an eventual connection to the axle, & allows the shocks ti remain unmodified. More to follow...
Hard_2_Handle_454 posted a topic in Model CarsTried to make it as accurate as possible. Looked thru a couple of car guides and a bunch of photos to see what the interior and engine should look like. The box had a gold engine, but I found photos in a book that showed blue and green as well. Came out pretty good. The model itself was a pleasure to build. Just a lot of parts. My only problem are with the parking lights. In the front they don't look too bad, but in back the holes made it look like there were no lights to begin with. So I went ahead and made the 1953 version without those lights.
