    Cool subject and judging from the El Camino it`s going to be awsome. 
    Notice one of these on Ebay,but the price was crazy and the bidding not even finish.

    I like the color,this should be sweet.

    I usually dont go onto links but i`m glad i did on this one. This is incredible workmanship.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Never thought of that and would probably have left it as is. 
    The donor for engine compartment here is the 70 Super Bee from AMT (Purple car on box),i do not have instructions
    from this kit,also i`m not really sure if i have the wiper motor or beep beep horn. Any idea for where to get the correct
    part? I do have another AMT 68 Road Runner build up,maby i can find some stuff there. Interesting info,thanks.

    Little more fiddle with the engine bay. Will take all parts apart again and do a better finish on it,just a mock up now. 
    The paint was returned,it was sent to the wrong adress,so they shipped new paint to me and should be here in not
    to long. I got another can Plum Crazy free of charge because of they`re mistake. 
    Here is what i aim for. 

    I might go stripe delete and skip the vinyl roof,also not sure about wheel/tire yet.

    Mattias that is one clean looking w123,nice to see one whitout the chrome wheelarch rust collectors. Is it a diesel? 
  10. om617 added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    Very nice,even looks to have open hood. Who makes this?

    I cant use the Franklin Mint because the quarter panels are very diffrent,i`m sure some who is more skilled then me could
    pull it off,but it`s to much work. 
     Thanks everyone for the input. First,i will not charge for labor and time,i actually looking forward to this,as a challenge for myself it this
    makes sense. I see the Modelhaus kit as the best soulution,what worry me is getting the bumpers done,i have no experience
    at all myself with casting. There is also no budget on this build.  
    Thanks Richard, i`ll look into the Cadillac`s listed on Ebay and see if there comes up some who arent in mint condition. 
    If anyone know someone who know someone who has parts or a junker i`ll be very interested,also since it`s not out of my pockets
    i`m sure the be willing to pay what ever is asked for. I find it strange the 53 Eldorado never was kitted.

    Could it be done (50/53 Cadillac)
    Friend of mine stopped by some days ago and we got talking cars and the topic turned into models and i told him 
    how it is today with all the vendors and huge aftermarket supply. So now he want me to build hes car,wich of
    coarse made me nervous because i`m far from a pro. He looked at some models i have built lately and said i had
    to make hes car. Recently he bought a 1953 Cadillac Coupe,this is a 2door hardtop,but there is no 53 avaliable as
    i know off. My idea is to use the Modelhaus 1950,and maby if i can find someone who is skilled at casting to maby use the 
    bumpers from a Franlin Mint 53 Eldorado? The rest is very close if not identical in many ways. Does anyone know
    if there is casters who do work on comission? Also i was wondering if there is correct paint to be bought? 
    Here are some pictures . As i understand the Modelhaus 50 is curbside. 

    Appriciate any input.

    Those are cool Don. Never seen the Alfa Romeo before,must be rare. 
    I bought an AMT 58 Bonneville convertible i plan on convert to hardtop,and a AMT 60 Bonneville convertible easy restore project. I assume this
    maby are of the craftsman series,not much chassis or any engine detail. I found a AMT 64 Pontiac GP nice box with lot`s of custom parts and
    a tub in good condition on Ebay,the tub i have on my GP are more or less shot,damaged by old glue. So it`s been a good day for models lol
