Franklin Mint SILVER 1936 Hudson. VERY under appreciated model IMO! Who agrees?
I have and LOVE it. Its a gem IMO and one of THFs last all new models if not the last new model. Details abound, fit/finish is great and if it had any more working features it would start up! Windows crank open like the 39 WF Ford, real hinges, real leather seats, WORKING convertible top etc. they really pulled out all the stops on this model! But this too got critiqued mostly about the top not looking right when UP etc. I say Kudos to them for even trying and giving us a working top in such a small scale. This model has a rich quality about it. Its unlike ANY FM model before it and has a very CMC look about it! To me its an unbelievable and great model and a MUST HAVE! I did NOT like the RED on it. I think that was a mistake. FM should have done that one if a light metallic blue or perhaps a shade of green or tan. Who agrees with me that this is an awesome diecast?
