Moebius '54 Hudson Hornet

Recommended Posts

Just finished this one up today.  I had a neighbor during my teens about 1956 who had one of these.  Tried matching the color of his but after seeing it built I think the lower color was a little lighter, but it's close enough for me.  I am finding that at age 76 I need kits that have good locating features...can't rely on a steady hand much anymore so these Moebius kits are my favorites lately.

As an added note, I remember everybody in the neighborhood had to have a ride in this car, it was really unique at that time.....us kids really marveled at it because it was so different.

Thanks for the kind words guys.  I really liked building this one, might build some more.

Great looking build. I also had a neighbor who had an earlier model Hudson. Never got to ride in it though. I used to remember all of the neighbors and what kind of cars they drove. A lot more fun than video games.

Great model!  I just picked one of these up, hope it turns out half as nice as this one.

Once again....I want to thank everyone for their gracious comments!  You guys know how to make an old guy feel good and help "stoke the fires" for building even more models.

Carl, she's absolutely GORGEOUS! :wub:

Funny that I saw very, very few of these growing up during the '60's. I suppose a lot of them started to disappear by the time I would know what a car was (early '60's). I sure saw my fair share of Ramblers from that era though! :D
