Two Chryslers and a Hudson

Recommended Posts

Before I start the next round of builds I took some shots of finished models.
The first is the Hudson - I saw some versions in Scale Auto Enthusiast and liked this color combo. The next is the Chrysler 300. I had to paint that with Krylon to get the right color. Difficult to work with and next time out I would do the scribe lines deeper. Then finally the Tim Flock Racer. All relatively stock with some aftermarket.

The last shot are my plans for the Winter

They look nice!  You must love to use bare metal foil.

Thanks for the comments everybody. 

Greg, the colors on the Hudson are Model Master Fifties Aqua #2942 and Light Ivory #2909. (Hey, my sister lives in double bay, AU. Was married to Murray Rose.)

Dave - wow you did the decal art on that Tim Flock racer and lived next to the Ms! That's cool!

Stephen - the foil is kind of a pain. But I try to replicate the 1:1 versions so if they have chrome, I'm in. Taking me a while but finally figured out that prepping for the foil is a must - just like painting, if you've got bumps or debris where the foil goes - it gets picked up once you put it on. Curves are also a pain.

Great looking builds. It looks like you will need to learn to read French on a couple of your up coming builds.
