Code 3s

I see Jacques Dujardin is collecting some code 3 images in his compilation. Attached is my Hudson Hornet Limousine, Derham bodied for A.E.Barit President of Hudson. Featured restoration of the month in Diecast Collector in 2003.

Re : Code 3s

Very nice. Such a difference in appearance with those rear side windows closed! I wonder if the reworking of your photo below may come closer to the true shade of yellow you used.

Kind regards, Jan

Re : Code 3s

Yes it is cream, looks fine on iPad but website doesn't seem to like downloading high resolution pictures. I'll try again with the digi camera.

Re : Code 3s

The DINKY TOYS Hudson Commodore sedan is based on the 1948 - 1949 Hudson.

Undoubtedly the most beautiful of all postwar Hudsons were the three customized sedans built by Derham between 1948 and 1952. The first was built for the widow of Hudson

Re : Code 3s

Probably no cream limousine, but cream on the model was a nod to the original cream and maroon Dinky Hudson.

Re : Code 3s

Noticeably the limousine has the earlier small text base with raised perimeter.

Re : Code 3s

Hudson Hornet at Wheels Day on Good Friday (great new venue at Dunsfold). This is a later early fifties version than the Dinky, sporting horizontal rear lights and new grille.

Re : Code 3s

Here's a relatively simple combination of parts from two damaged Dinkies - the body of the Daimler Ambulance adjusted to fit the cab/chassis of the Dodge truck to provide a mobile office for the Automobile Association.
