Hej!

It's been a while since I 've posted anything, that is mostly because I was busy with work that is slowly but sureley taking up most of my time, and of course my real cars. There was an old Stationwagon that I rescued from the crusher, and last two months or so, I was hunting my dreams and now, after annoying the guy who had THE CAR for long enough, and after a crazy ride home over 190 miles under it's own power, I am a proud owner of a big heap of real american Iron, leather, rust, lacquer, chrome, fungus, and a pair of sky high tailfins. Yes sir. A ninetensixty Cadillac Sedan DeVille series sixty two is parked in the garage, which most likley won't let me build the tiny things as often as I'd like in the near future, but sit under that monster with a welder and makin' my hands dirty building a real car makes up for it. Whooo!

However, the state of my Cadillac reminds me of a model that I bulit a while ago, and although the Cad is not in such a sorry state, I'd like to share it with you.
The car was put together from a Revell box, just sporting some AMT A-Team Van wheels, and unfortunalley I used the beautiful whitewalls inside out and painted the inserts black. Shame on me for not looking for some replacements and keepin' those beautiful wheels for some further projects.
The build itself was really simple, and the kit sports some fabulous fitting, small gimmicks such as a glas insert for the tach, or crisp moldings and details. Lovley!
Painted it with whatever was on my table back then, tried out some techniques and that is what came out after just few weekends of building.

There you go:

The weathering on this is spectacular! It has gone through a life and shows it. This is what weathering is about ... wonderful job!

Nice job on the weathering, one question where did the leaves come from?

Thanx, glad you like it.

The leaves are simply birch seeds glued on with some clear laquer, and washed here and there just to get some variation in color. That's it.

Nah. They are always around in Autum, and loads of them. Just pick up some, load them in a small paper box and it will last forever.

Used them on this one too:

Truth is, there is nothing that can beat nature while trying to imitate it.

That is awesome Adam. Such great detail and all. Looks so much like my 65GMC I had in N.C. With motor and all. Great job.
