1953 Hudson Hornet

Recommended Posts

This is my first post here on the workbench section so ill try to keep you guys posted. I've already started the model though. So far so good. Besides needing to put the exhaust pipe and drive shaft in the chassis loose, because they will be in an enclosed piece in the chassis, the rear end went together extremely well. The white walls are also amazing! The engine was good. Needed to modify some parts to make them fit right though. Again I didn't glue the spindles onto the chassis or the control arms so they are steerable. 

 

Because this is a mafia car, I need some gangster figures and guns, stuff like that. If anyone has some parts from any Gangbusters kits, I'd like to buy or trade for them.

Well I can't do anything much right now. Need to get paint for the body, and the paint has to be stripped from the seats. Bad paint. But here's a moc up of the car for now

New plan. Going with a honey cream and black sides and roof. Stay classy my friends 🍻. As well as a black interior. Any input on a better interior Colour?

Beautiful job on the steering.

The interior is best done using the guide on the instruction sheets; it's fairly accurate for color placement.

If you're doing a wise-guy's car, I'd suggest a muted color scheme- less flashy is better for that, but you still want to leave an impression. 

Seal Gray with the blue interior would be a nice choice. Scale Finishes has that available as a mix. Elm City Hobbies in Nova Scotia handles Canadian Distribution. If you don't have an airbrush, Testors Gloss Gray will do. 

Honey Cream with a brown interior would also be a good move. I would suggest using Testors flat brown, flat light brown and tan for the dark/medium/light areas. Not "exact," but it'll get you in the ballpark. Again, you can either use Scale Finishes or Testors 2-step lacquer Ford Phoenician Yellow is very, very close to the factory color. 

Black with a brown interior would also be within reason. I like Tamiya's Gloss Black. I think it's the best one on the market, and that includes the automotive paints.

Nice build so far, black with brown interior, like charlie8575 suggested, would look killer on this one!

Here's a quick update. The car has been masked where it will be painted black. As well as the engine is fully complete.

What a great looking kit! Awesome job so far! The interior and engine look incredible. 

actually no. The interior is not mine. I only posted it showing what mine was going to look like. I stated above saying not mine. Maybe this will be more clear. But thanks, the engine is mine

Been 2 years since I worked on this car. Still need to paint the thing. But anyone following this can look forward to it being finished hopefully soon
