Koool dude... Just mind blowing. One question tough, what happens to the top when its converted. and ya how much do they cost.
sorry for the delay in getting this sinner... but here are some pictures showing a few more details in the Hudson
1:18 Highway 61 - Hudson Hornet (Cream)
The Hudson, with the roof on...
Without the roof, rear seat center console down (note the two holes where the roof folded/unfolded attaches)
Without the roof, rear seat center console up
The folded roof piece attached in place...
Wooden finish dash... the glove compartment doesn't open... (the Highway 61 Dodge Challenger 1970 model that I own has an operatable glove box)
The front seat in normal driving position
Front seats moved forward and seat back folded forward, for the rear passengers to enter and exit... the front seat is a bench seat like all old American cars, so it moves forward as one piece, but the seat backs are split and fold individually...
The boot, alongwith the spare wheel...
I found the hood hinges done well...
The car with the soft-top drawn into position. Folded down piece also visible... (there is no place in the car to store it)
What brand is it, and yeah, do tell us how much that put you back by?
That is some mind boggling detail!
And I thought Kyosho's were as good as they get!

Thanks guys. The Hudson is from Highway 61 and it cost me AED375, I feel it was worth every penny.
The day I picked up the Hudson, I also saw a 1970 Dodge Dart, 1970 Plymouth Cuda, HUMMER H2 and a 1957 Oldsmobile Super 88 from Highway 61. The store has stock varying Maisto to CMC.
There are two guys who manage the store, one Indian and the other a Filipino... now I can only confirm this by word of mouth of the Indian saleman... it seems the CMC MERCEDES-BENZ RACING CAR TRANSPORTER, 1954... which was in the shop on my previous visit was a special order for none other than Mamooty... don't know if it is the truth though... just heresay.
