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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

Here's a code 3 Humber one ton cargo truck. These are very common and I search for ways to modify them. I have made water tankers and letely this cooker truck, using the French Dinky cooker trailer as a basis. Purists need not fear that I have smashed the trailer - this is a resin recast....

Here's a simple but effective Code 3 on what was a very playworn Humber one-ton truck. A straightforward repaint, with a new repro canopy and tyres and the addition of transfers and a repro ladder intended for the 261 telephone srvice van.

Chris,

This is what I have in my archives, a very simple code 3, T do not know where the crane comes from. This conversion has been made by meilyman.

That IS nice!   Great job. It's hard to make anything different from these little trucks
