58´Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz 1/24 LEE

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone I guess one of the worst kit I've ever built. I couldn't put the wheels together, so I used the wheels from 34 'Cadillac Fleetwod by Italeri. Here I used Alclad for chromes for the first time, but it wipes easily at the touch.

Great looking model. The wheels and modified stance make it one of the most pleasing builds I've seen of this (disappointing) kit.

I hear that that one is a difficult kit to build well. You did a spectacular job on it!

All Caddys should be black and SHINY 😊😊😊.  Your build is awesome.

Very well done. Black is hard and you got it. Not sure why you had troubles with the Alclad. Unless it wasn't completely dry. I thought that it was a fairly hardy paint. Maybe next time try Bare Metal Foil.

It turned out well.  Good work.

Thank you very much to everyone for the very nice and encouraging comments. I realize that the chrome arc behind the front wheel is nonsense, well a year ago I jumped in headfirst. : -) For Lee Rile: That it's easy to wipe the chromium off the paint here is probably just my fault, I probably didn't grease the body off the polishing paste, and then Alclad didn't hold. Admittedly, since then I have always preferred to coat Chrom Alclad II with varnish, but after that it has lost its shine. So the next models I put in the next few days won't have chromes that bright anymore. But lately, I've come to realize that when I wrap up Alclad II with a two-part 2K ZERO varnish, it hardly loses its shine. Thank you for your support and your tip for the new chrome. : -)

Amazing build! Black is a hard color to do and make it perfect, but looks like you nailed it.  The chrome work looks great too for your first time using Alclad!
