Chuck Most

1953 Hudson Hornet Lowrider

Recommended Posts

Not much to say about the 18th Moebius Hornet I've finished. I did it as a lowrider with some suspension mods and a rolling stock transplant from Revell's custom Coupe Deville lowrider kit. Under the hood I used a finned cylinder head from Morgan Automotive Detail, as well as some carbs and air cleaners from a Revell '29 Model A Roadster. Maybe later I'll add a visor and a swamp cooler AC unit. We'll see.

Very nice Chuck. Great color combo and the gold wheels really set it off. Nice!

Eye candy Chuck. Ever thought of doing a Hornet group photo? 18 might be dicey but I'm sure it can be done.

Very sleek looking build. I like the engine mods.

Thanks guys. Paint is the purple and white from the Testors One Coat line. I should have used more than one coat of the white on the roof- I got some ghosting...

And Dave, yeah- the foil work is the one thing I don't like about these- particularly the window surrounds. But it's a necessary evil.

When I saw your name on the post I was ready to see some rust, way to fake me out.. Really clean build, very nice.  (At least one of the Hornets is rusty though, right?)

More like at least 14 of them. :P

I haven't actually counted which ones are clean and which ones are rusty, but they're all here-  (except for this one anyway)- http://chuckmost.wixsite.com/madhouse-miniatures/single-post/2018/02/18/The-Hornets-Nest

Wow!

that's made me want to buy one of these kits.

I'm a sucker for Lowriders and this is just perfect.
