  1. Boss Hogg '70 Cadillac Deville Convertible

    Hi Andrew, Wow ! impressive work on the repairs. I can't wait to see the final result, as I have just made a 1969 Cadillac Convertible 3 weeks ago. It's posted on the "under glass" forum. Thanks for sharing your progress pics and don't give up the good work!
  2. 1966 Cadillac Series 75 Limousine

    Again, a big THANK YOU to everybody for the good words !. More Cadillac conversions to come during the summer !!!
  3. 1966 Cadillac Series 75 Limousine

    HI Michael, thank you very much!. Over the last 30 years I have seen only 2 1966 limousines without the rear window openings. Definitively customized by a private manufacturer or coach builder. Yet, almost all of the"regular" business limos were having them, vinyl top or not. Even the converted limos by Derham, under an heavily vinyl padded roof, were showing rear windows but reduced in size. Not doing that opening on my model isn't voluntary, I have faced many problems with the mastic used to raise the height of the top and to transform the D pillar. So, to prevent any further damages during the building, I went with this option.

  5. 1966 Cadillac Series 75 Limousine

    Thank you so much Paul !
  6. Hi guys ! This time again I am sharing with you my last transformation. Another Cadillac of course!. Last fall I discovered that Hasegawa had released a new version of their "Amercian 66" Series, ( including their Coupe Deville ) into a "lowrider" series. I jumped on the occasion to buy 2 kits in order to create from them a series 75 limousine. Hasegawa's kits are not as refine as the Jo-Han's Coupe Deville of the same year, but working from Johan's 66 Caddies is inconcevable to me, since these promos or kits are very rare and really expensive. And to be honest, Hasegawa's are really good to start from. So there she is !. Chassis, B,C and D pillars, interior including passengers compartment have been modified or created of course, as well as original wheelbase. Then, all the roof have been levelled up cause limos roof were higher than regular Deville series. I have added a "vinyle-ish" top option on my model, to make it even more rare, since most of the real 66 limos were not having it. Over the last 20 years, I have seen only one model conversion like this one, without the vinyle top. So, since no Cadillac limousines have ever been made by any kit manufacturer, I guess that my model is maybe unique. It's by far the most complicated transformation I have ever done. Hope you'll like it !
  7. 1969 Cadillac DeVille Convertible

    Guys, thank you all very, very much !. It's really appreciated. Your kind words are beyond encouraging and helping.
  8. Hi guys ! Sharing with you today this Jo-Han's 1969 Cadillac Deville convertible, my first build of 2019. It's a promo that I have converted into the convertible version, as Jo-Han never proposed this specific model. ( just the Coupe Deville and the Eldorado ). If I recall, I think I got that promo for 3 bucks about 15 years ago because it was totally damaged. Half of the roof was gone, such as A pillars and windshield. The body looked like a cat had chew big parts of it, was full of little dents and most of the original paint was scratched. I didn't know what to do with it at the time but I couldn't let it go, so I kept it and restored it. I have detailed the interior with carpet, wood-ish inside panels, created a soft boot and added front seat's headrests and wider white walls. For the colour, I tried to get as close as its original one, such as Sapphire blue Met. Still a few details to finish yet, such as antenna, scripts and mirrors but overall this is it. Hope you'll like it.

  10. 1959 Caddy El Dorado Convertible

  11. 1970 Coupe DeVille

    Nice !. Details added on seats are excellent, good side mirror too ! and great color btw.
  12. '64 Cadillac from the movie Cooley High

    Thanks Chris !. Tom's 1970 coupe Deville's also very nice !. It's a pity than no manufacturer offers '50's to '80s "regular stock" Cadillac model kits anymore. The vast majority of Cadillac in shows now are Lowriders or customs....
  13. '64 Cadillac from the movie Cooley High

    Wow ! Excellent built , sharp and amazing details !. I love it !. Hope you'll share some pics of her from the show too, as well as other Cadillacs, if you find some.
  14. Dream Time: What cars would you like to see modeled?

    Hi ! Tough question !. Only Cadillac for me... Passion's too big, I couldn't pick only one or two, there are so many models I'd love to see made!. In fact, would be great to see the ones that could fill the gaps that Jo-Han Models has not produced. So, many Sedans or limousines. Here are just a few I would love in my collection. 1949-1953 Fleetwood, 1954 Eldo and 1958 Eldorado Brougham, 1960 limo and 1962 Coupe deVille, 1967 and 1969 Limos, 1972 Fleetwood and 1976 Limo, 1977-78 and 1980-84 Eldorado Biarritz................etc etc...
  15. Hi guys ! Sharing today an old built, the Cadillac Coupe De Ville 1976 by Modelhaus. As these kits are ultra rare now I just regret to have built it at a time where my skills weren't as good as they are today. I could restore it completely though. I guess this Cadillac's still presentable and worth a few pics here, don't you think ? ...Ah, If only Revell would stop doing Customs and Lowriders to offer more old "stock" american cars !
