  • 1949 Hudson Commodore eight

    Finished up another one.



    I really like the Alloy forms vehicles. This one I used Gallery Glass to add the windows. It works so well I took apart a few of my built Alloy Forms vehicles and added the Gallery Glass to them.

      Glen, Hudson, 1 of my favorite cars ever. Sharpie has a new gold and silver marker pen out that works great on small areas like door handles, bumpers, etc. Comes out better then paint. 99 Cents each at staples. DO those models come in O scale or just HO??? GREAT CAR build!!!

        Gallery glass is a clear liquid used in making stained glass artwork.

        Usually found at Michael's.

          Thanks Guys. John answered the question for me:



          I got the idea from George Selios. He uses it on almost all his window treatments from my understanding.

          I did use a paint marker on the chromework but probably not as fine as the sharpie. I ended up using a very fine brush and a small puddle of paint from the marker to do the really small details on these cars.

          Sorry, no 'O' just 'HO'

              Glen,

              I find that the sharpie paint pen/marker is not as good as the sharpie silver/gold/copper fine point marker. The paint markers just don't work right and they leak when you press on them as that is the way there supposed to work. Shame they don't come in O Gauge.....There is no brakes in O scale...

              You need deep pockets for everything......

                      Glen,

                      You seem to be in a car building mood. I hope to see more of your work.

                        Thanks Guys. I just noticed that I have a lot of cars piling up on the workbench and it was best if I tackle that all at once.

                        I was in as Michael's today and picked up a chisel-tipped calligraphy pen in silver so I'll see how that works on future vehicle projects.
