Moebius Hudson!


Recommended Posts

I've heard rumors of a 1/72 Skipjack submarine; about 42 inches long.

Possibly boring for car modelers, but remove the bumps, scrounge up some wheels and a drivetrain...

There comes day when i stop all my other projects just to build Hudson Hornet. Every model company should do it like Moebius and listen customers little better ;)

Now: Dear Moebius is there any chance to have an model kit of Lada, any 70s to 90s rear-wheel drive model. Thank you :)

That Skipjack, combined with a 5-channel radio control system, and one of the commercially available model submarine ballast tank systems would be SOOOOOO cool! We have here in Lafayette a 3-acre lagoon in our principal city park, that would be just so neat to play with a sub--I can hear it already: Aaahoogah@ Aaahoogah! DIVE! DIVE!. Hmmmmmm!

Skipjack... plus a Flathead V8... plus some tall and skinny slicks I already have laying around... Lee, my good sir, that might be the best idea I've seen in a long time. :D

I'm stepping out to search for some submarine kits.

Nope ... both the Hudson and the 300 will have MSRPs in the $30 range.

Good, but still a bit too pricey for me. I'll wait till an LHS has it for $25 or less, or hopeing (but i'm not gonna count my chicken on it) that Michaels or AC Moore will (not likely) carry it in the next 6 years!!

I suspect that news will be held tightly by Moebius until mid October, as in i-Hobby Expo.

However, can I get conformation that Model King will be offering the first NASCAR version in a limited run joint deal as was posted on another board. Art or Dave ?

Steve,

True. ModelKing is doing a very limited production run of the NASCAR Hudson in Tim Flock livery. Three thousand units, one time only. I already have mine on order.

Hot diggity dawg! Let's go racin', boys!

I will post one pic here and the rest in the 1:1 reference section.I think that is the thing to do.If Harry or Gregg want to move the pics post here,be my guest.

I hope this helps someone.

Just remember that there are many external visual differences between this '54 and the Moebius '53, notably the side trim, grille, rear fenders and air scoop on the hood.
