Postwar Hudsons were very good-looking cars, in my opinion. I think they also were successful in stock car racing. My uncle had one and he was very proud of it! A great-looking scene, too!

Well you did have "The Fabulous" Doc Hudson.

That sagging roof building in the last photo is amazing.

Thanks Gene, believe it or not it is not very difficult at all to build. Just arc 2 pieces of chip board or material you prefer, and glue together. Looks like this>  Cutout the arc attach the two pieces together and you have a sagged roof.  Use it as template, for thicker material etc.  shingle as usual or tare paper.Sketch

The haggle continues', He's holding firm, and she's negotiating for his best price'.. He knows she loves the color'. And when it comes to cars and woman, it always boils down to color.. Don't ask me how I know this'...

QUARTER GAUGER 48,

Your town scene, buildings and the latest Hudson pictures are terrific, in my opinion. Thanks for posting.

We live within about twenty miles of each other. I certainly would be interested in seeing your layout, and you are welcome to visit mine. I also have a 1950s town scene. My e-mail in my profile.

My dad had a 1949 Hudson. It was one of the few cars he bought new. It was a revolutionary car being it had almost no exposed fenders and the floor pan was lower than the frame rails so you stepped down into it. Of course today all cars are like that, but back in the day folks would always comment about it when they got in. He kept it until 1955. I don't remember much about how it drove or how it felt to ride in it. I don't even know if the straight six was OHV or flathead. I have to get one for my layout since I'm trying to get cars we (I) owned or really liked.

QUARTER GAUGER 48,

As a result of your post, I looked at two websites to see what they had available in the way of Hudsons. A 1950 diecast Hudson was $99 and a 1948 Hudson was $165. I have quite a few 1930s, '40s, and '50s cars on my layout, but at those prices I may just settle for a '46 DeSoto or another Studebaker...
