1953 Hudson Hornet Rust Bucket
Posted by RFluhr on Wednesday, November 09, 2011 10:24 AM

I just got a Moebius 1953 Hudson Hornet yesterday, I'm going to do a rusted out version with the bumpers and everything inside of the car. I think I will just have the engine block with the hood setting on the roof or something. The car will be setting on three wheels and a concrete block (if I can find some in 1/25 scale) next to an old shed. Here is a picture of the look I'm going for, I will post pictures as I go along.

Yeah, somebody's got cinder blocks. Pallets too. Hard to pick up a kit like that and not remember the one you saw sitting on the side of that building, all those years, rusting away, and then one day you just noticed it wasn't there any more...

 

that's a great idea.

I found some great reference pictures today I really like the one of the rear end and the missing drivers side door. I think that is what I'm going to do with mine.

I have a few more reference pics one is of the engine I think that I will use for mine. I like the front tire hanging off of the rim too.

I know where there was 2 53 hudsons at a nighbors field and i enjoyed looking at them but after time they was completly grown over by sticker bushes. you can't see them anymore. if they was mine i would have kept it where i could look at them. they are great looking cars even as junkers..slusher

Hi guys I'm finally back, I moved the first of January and just got things situated so that I can start modeling again. I had no place to work that was heated back during the winter but the weather is better here in Indiana now so I can get started on my rusty Hornet again. I cut the drivers side door open I plan to have the door setting in the trunk or the broken back window. I'm going to start working on the rust holes and a couple of dents now, I will be posting progress pics when I get more done.
