Matty Winspur's 54 Hudson... with a twist

Recommended Posts

This is my take on Matty Winspur's 54 Hudson offered by Moebius. As much as I love the real car, I thought it would be cool to give it a little more flash. The straight six provided in the kit will be used for a 34 Ford I'm slapping together at the moment, and was traded for an early Hemi from an AMT parts pack. To accommodate the much larger engine, the fender wells were cut out. In addition to that and the interior color, the only other thing different from the original is the roof, which admittedly was just a paint experiment I decided to run with lol. The colors used were various grey primers and Rust-Oleum satin navy for the interior, Tamiya light metallic blue over Testors diamond dust for the main body color, and a combination of the aforementioned colors along with Tamiya white primer, Testors blazing black, and Duplicolor metalcast blue for the roof. It was then treated to a few coats of Testors gloss coat lacquer and a good polishing. Hope you like it, and thanks for looking!

That's one cool looking build. All the decals make it pop.

I just picked this kit up today.  Your build is beautiful!  I realize it's not historically accurate, but it is nonetheless beautifully executed.   Well done!

I was just looking back over this thread and enjoying the photos. It's a really great build. I guess I'll have to get one for my stash. These cars would definitely have been seen racing in the early to mid 60s, which is the era I've got the biggest bug for.

One thing did catch my eye today that I missed when I viewed the thread before. What's up with the dollar signs on the windshield?

To tell you the truth, I don't really know lol. The other window markings that came with the kit (class markings and so on) wouldn't really work with the mods I did. I did want to put something there, however, so the dollar signs it was.
