  1. Hi Dennis !. WOW ...Fantastic work !!! Thanks for sharing it. You're very lucky to have bought when available the Modelhaus's '49 Club Coupe. It's extremely rare now and unfortunately I missed that beauty at the time. Your build looks marvelous, and the Custom Brougham is quite impressive too. Great skills here, no doubt !. Thanks again and if you have more caddies, don't stop sharing with me
  2. Hello Peter, This job at the Keyaerts Collection was indeed mind blowing ! A dream come true for a "Cadillac Man" White lines Studio27's decals and Cadillac emblems are water decals. Studio27's are about 5.5 inches long and they go from 0.1mil to 0.5mil in width. No matter the width needed, I always cut the lenght in smaller pieces to help with the manipulation. Regarding the Cadillac emblems, I've also found them on ebay but a few years ago. Quality is okay, not great. And these are last generation's Cadillac emblem so not really accurate for old caddies. Sorry, apparently I can't go back that late in my purchase history to get you a seller nor a manufacturer but here is a picture of them, hope it'll help you find some.
  3. Hi Peter, thanks for the details, of course, they are interesting for me. Your Eldorado is quite presentable for sure, looks in great shape overall. Good to know you are taking good care of her. As I had to travel a lot a few years ago, I had to sell my 73 DeVille and it was hard to let her go...loved her so much. She was incredibly reliable. I also kept her safe and off roads during winters, as you can easily understand the kind of long and cold winters we also have here in Quebec. No Cadillac in my parking lot nowadays though...but I hope to fix it very soon. I am a CLC member, "Cadillac only" fan since the last 30 years, used to work for the late private french Collection "Musée Keyaerts", one of the biggest Cadillac collection in the world, and I try to attend every major annual meetings in US or Europe when I can. I have the bug ! The seller's name for the hood ornament is agdmodels5115, on Ebay. No Cadillac emblems for now but I think he can take some orders. They are extremely well done, and not that expensive. The studio27 decals I am using are the ones on the picture. Offered from time to time on Ebay so you'll probably have to check regularly. Feel free to share your Cadillac kits once done, it'll be good to see them. Cheers ! JP
  4. Hi Peter, thanks ! What can I say other than I loooove your Eldorado and that you are a lucky man !!! I had a 73 Sedan DeVille a few years ago, driving her on a daily basis....I miss her a lot!. Congrats for your Biarritz, she's gorgeous and I really love that colour combination, thanks for sharing that beauty with me. I always liked the visual details offered by the Biarritz models, as well as the chrome trims running around the hood ('77-'78). I have found the hood ornaments on EBay, last september, these are 3D nickel plated emblems. They are not offered all the time but if you want I'll give you the link for the seller. And regarding the decals, they are water decals made by a compagny called Studio27, also foundable on EBay.
  5. Hello Peter, thanks !. I want to see your 76 Eldorado once it's done, The tires are the original ones, from the promo. But I put some larger white wall stickers on them to make the overall appearance more elegant.
  6. Hi Guys, Sharing with you the first "light" restoration/conversion of the year. I had this Jo-Han's 1972 Cadillac Promo in decent body condition but the paint had some scratches, especially on the roof. After some paint clean-up, I decided to build it with an option that Cadillac was offering that year, the Custom Cabriolet edition, a half padded vinyl roof option on Eldorado models, with curved edges wrapped around the B pillar's side base. In comparison, the "regular" Eldorado Coupes had the entire roof covered with vinyl, with straight edges on the B pillar. I have detailed the interior with a new color, carpeting, "wood-ich" door panels, dashboard, etc. For the exterior, Bare Metal foil everywhere of course, some X-tra thin white decals on hood, new Cadillac emblem, front and rear black rubber bumper stops were added, new larger white walls, specific and accurate hubcaps for the model-year. ( In fact, 1972 Jo-Han's Cadillac promos were offered with the 71's Cadillac hubcaps, which are different from 1972 ). This 8.2L V8 baby needs some work again on chromes and I am still trying to find a source for int/ext. mirrors though... Anyway, not a mind blowing conversion here but at least some inconditional love for one of my favorite Cadillac model ever. Hope you'll like it.
  7. Love your Ecto 1 !!!. I am planning to do it in 2020. Great builds.
  8. Hi Dennis. OMG !!! Your Cadillacs are A-MA-ZING 😍 😍 😍 Outstanding models for sure, I love them. Thank you so very much for sharing your pics of course, they like a christmas present to me, and I would mind NOT seeing them. 😋 So please, feel free to share more if you have more, here or in private messages. Is the 1960 Eldorado Seville a Shawn Carpenter's conversion kit, or have you made it from the 59 Monogram ?. wow...fantastic builds and colours combination.
  9. Thank you all very very much again !!! I wish you guys a wonderful christmas time with your friends and loved ones. May 2020 also brings you health, joy and laughter...lots of models too
  10. Thank you very much Bob !. 1962 Cadillacs are so hard to find. There is one actually on Ebay right now that needs to be restored but from what I see of your models, you have very very good skills... so that Caddy wouldn't be a problem for you. Good hunt ! https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-25-JOHAN-1962-CADILLAC-Fleetwood-Built-Model-Car/174130912770?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D1dcf69c420c04438b50ac6307766a026%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D312898479918%26itm%3D174130912770%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A67d0cd5c-2329-11ea-8358-74dbd180906a|parentrq%3A2369c94016f0acc6e188c9baffd0a7ac|iid%3A1
  11. Yes I have always heard great reviews on V16s JoHan models. The cane work for the Town Car looks really tough indeed but it's worth the challenge I guess!. Of course I'd love to see your kits on the forum if you can share them. I really like the 1933 All Weather Phaeton from Italeri and also plan to do it but my addiction for the brand really starts in 1934, with the 2 blade bumpers feature. I have lots of Caddies in prep for the year to come...such as Flat top Sedans 1961 and 1959, Coupe DeVille 1962, Eldorado 1961 and 1968, Eldo convertible 1971 and many more... I'll need time Thanks again for your good words!.
  12. Hi Eric, thanks !!!. Yes, I do only Cadillacs, I am an absolute fan . Never done any 30s yet but I'll will probably end up finding the kits made by Jo-Han.
  13. Hi guys....Here's a family picture of the Cadillacs I have converted, built, restored this year...Many new ones on the plans for 2020. Hope to be able to have the time to make them all.

    Hey ! Very nice work, love the color combo !
  15. Hello Tom ! Thanks, that's a funny story . Some of these extra long limos were indeed "too much" ...and I guess a lot of chauffeurs must have had hard times and nightmares on many occasions
