Finally finished restoring the #492 Hubley Transport auto carrier. It's one of the Hubley 490 series 13 1/2". I wish I could have a better job on the cab red color, but the paint would just not lay right. After 2 strippings and painting I just let it ride. This group is smaller than the 510 series that average about 20". I kind of like this group, especially the cab. I wish they had made one scaled up for the 500's. I've got another 492 cab and a 493 log trailer that I'll hopefully get to. The cars are not the original load, they're Its a Beaut '47 Chryslers. I want to thank Lata for giving me info on this obscure company. I need to finish the road grader and low boy set now that I've got a gravity feed airbrush, I'm sick and tired of the siphon feed. Thanks for kindly dropping in.
