Randy is correct, it is PMI. Issued in 1979 and mastered by Dick Armbruster,
who made the patterns for many PMI, Motor City and Durham Classics models, more than 1500 of these litle Hudsons found their way as kits and built-ups to hobbyists. This is an important model to me because it was key to the start of built-up models that so many of us on this Forum and throughout the World have embraced. In my book, "Independents in Miniature" I devote a few pages to this particular car and include some anecdotes and descriptions from the builders themselves. What an exciting time this must have been to be there during this important stage in the development of our hobby.

David H. and others may recall that this large side trim piece missing on this kit-built model was an applique?
