CADILLAC DTS

Recommended Posts

Nice work on a kit often overlooked. I kinda wish Revell would add stock wheels and reissue it.

What wheels and tires are those....and did you do anything to the doors????

Thanks

Thanks for the comments guys.

Dave, This was a Revell Uptown kit that came with operating front doors that swing out and up. The wheels and tires are parts box items.

Nice!

Isn't it a CTS, though? The DTS was the big, front-drive model that replaced the Deville.

Very Nice! Actually, that's an STS.............They were the bigger brother of the CTS.

I was asking as I glued mine closed as they didn't look right. Yours look good and wondered if you had to glue them too.

Thanks

This is not a STS or DTS. This is a CTS.

DTS replaced the Deville in 2000

STS replaced the Seville at the same time

The CTS was a new concept at that time and had the uphill battle to replace the Catera and fight off it's bad reputation.

The one the model represents is the first generation, which originally had a Saab V6, BMW transmission, body panels built in Indonesia and it was actually built in Germany. Then they made the very first V-series, which had a Corvette motor and transmission in it.

To my knowledge no plastic model of a cts was ever produced. :)

Do we have any resinmongers willing to take up the case? A CTS coupe in 1/24 would be a thing of beauty...
