1953 Herb Thomas Hudson Hornet

Started another one this week, like I need anymore in the works. Its a Moeibus Flock Hudson that will be used for the 53 Herb Thomas Hornet. I will use the 53 interior and trim pieces from the stock 53 kit, then I can make a stock 52 when I get the time. Anyway, I cut out the skirts and puttied the forward most skirt line since it appeared to be molded incorrectly. Primed with Tamiya White Primer. Then I broke out my airbrush for the first time in year and sprayed the body. I mixed Testors Navy Blue Gray and some Testors Sea Blue and then sprayed tesotrs Lacquer Clear over it and this is what I got. It is alittle more gray in person than the pictures show. Its needs to be wet sanded and polished before I can apply bare-metal foil and the decals.

Where are you getting decals from ? I would rather build a Herb Thomas car than the Marshall Teauge version that I have.

I mixed together then airbrushed it. Not sure the ratio I just dumped the sea blue into the navy blue gray to my eye til it looked close to me.
