Hi everyone, I picked up 2 of these HO scale 1927 Hudson V-315 kits from Sylvan earlier this year.
The kits are moulded polyurethane resin.
This Hudson truck was never produced in a factory, rather it started out as a four door sedan.
It was common in the 1930's & 40's to convert large older cars into trucks.
Which is what this Hudson flatbed truck represents here.
I added the wood railings onto the back flatbed on my 2 trucks.

Another nifty pair of trucks with lots of potential uses. You can even model small gifts boxes for the back and then hang them on your Christmas tree :)

Thanks! Pete & Bill.
You guys are more than welcome to take one of these out for a test drive anytime!
Even if Bill ends up driving one into a Christmas tree.

Chester would be proud of you as he did kitbashing too. Heck, I'm proud of you too.

Nice work on the Hudsons, Greg. They look very sharp. And very practical for hauling stuff around the farm.
