1954 Hudson NASCAR 1/25th scale Moebius Models Kit
UPDATE! I have finally finished this Hudson for Jay Ward of Pixar. I have added all of my custom designed decals and the model is now on it’s way to Pixar!
This is an interesting build I have almost completed for Jay Ward the head of Pixar Animation and the creator of the Cars movie series. Jay gave me free-reign to build something for his office, so I decided to build a “real life” Hudson Hornet NASCAR as it would have raced in 1954.
I found this Hudson kit at my local hobby shop and used it as my starting point. Overall this is a pretty well designed kit but I added a lot of extras as this model was developed as a drag car. I added engine details, custom wheels, all real metal trim, lug nuts, adjusted suspension and more. I have custom decals on the way that I designed and personalized to be a car that Jay would have driven, and I used my son’s name as the local speed shop! I will upload more pics when the decals have been applied.
This was a fun build, and to think of it on display at Pixar Studios is pretty exciting!
Let me know what you think!
