Hey all, Here’s my latest build - Moebius 1/25 52’ Hudson Hornet. It’s my first Moebius kit so I decided to do a box straight build - the whole experience feels very similar to how some of Revell Germany - lots of parts so they require minimal amount of masking, very realistic construction which got kinda handful to securely assemble. Here’s the full build detail; All the panels showed some level of warpage and bunch of sink marks, so I filled sink marks, shaved door handles, scribed panel lines then corrected all the panels with 600 grit sandpaper (to get even panel surface across the body) Applied Mr color’s while surfacer then wet sanded with 1500 grit I wanted to get some nice two-tone that’s close to stock 52’ color combo but slightly deveated from it - so that paint would ‘pop’ a bit more Mixed Mr color’s super fine silver, leaf gold and metallic green to get lime-ish light green Airbrushed mixture of Mr color’s clear green and black on top half to simulate Jefferson green Painted the underbody and suspension with combination of gloss black, flat black and flat dark grey then added light weathering effect Added ignition wires and PE hose clamp to the engine bay Added 3 layers of Mr color super clear II with wet sanding after first clear coat Let the paint cure for 1 month then wet sanded with 3000 grit sponge and polished with Tamiya compounds Airbrushed the interior with mixture of Tamiya’s green & pure blue As for the woodgrain I make & airbrushed brown, brush painted with Tamiya acrylics (lighter and darker browns) then brush painted lacquer clear on top of it Masked off the body and painted the chrome bits with Mr color’s aluminum Because this kit just put the spruce gate right at the middle of parts, I had to strip chrome out of headlamp bezel where the mark was too obvious - plastic somehow melted a little bit so I used leftover parts from Ebbro DS kit. I lost the front emblem while doing so I made one up with leftover PE Apart from couple of issues such as decals that has weird white outlines acround the artwork, as well as wheels not fitting at all without grinding out the female portion inside the wheels, overall it was an enjoyable build and I can’t wait to build another Moebius kit!
