Revell 1/25 Custom Lowrider Cadillac Review

Recommended Posts

Nice reissue. Lots of parts, can be built stock height if you wish, will require parts box wheels and tires for stock look.

Great to see you doing another model car review. I for one appreciate you taking the time to review these kits as it not only helps me decide whether or not to buy the kit but it also helps me become a better builder.  Thanks hpiguy.     Jeff 

 

I usually buy the kits!

This has been out for awhile now, anyways, for the people looking to get one, it was good that Revell reissued it, the price on Ebay for one of the previous issues were darn near around $100.

It seems to me the, just like the last time this kit was reissued, it sold out quickly and there were no more to be had. I'd buy a few now if you still want some.

 I remember that happening the last time I do believe,  I do agree, if you want one, do not wait too long get one.

I normally snatch up kits as soon as they become available but until this review, I wasn't interested in this kit, thinking it was a lowrider only kit. Now that I see it can easily be made into a stock Cadillac (minus the wheels) I want a couple.

Stock-ish.  It's kinda a mishmosh of years.  It's like a mid-80's Fleetwood Brougham 2-door with an early 90's front end and body cladding.  Pretty common swap in the lowrider scene.

Thanks for the terrific review.  I have that kit on my bench to do a review for IPMS.

I built one of those when the kit first came out several years ago, and I really liked it. I bought a Donk version of the kit, and promptly got rid of it, because of the hideous interior. I was able to pick up another one before they disappeared.

My Dad's last decent car was a '81 Coupe DeVille, which was a good looking car. I would like to modify one of these into a replica of his car. He would be proud.
