1959 Cadillac Sedan De Ville Flat top

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys !

Here's my second build of 2020. This is a Paul Hettick resin kit of a 4 windows 1959 Sedan de Ville. Paul did an amazing conversion with the body, interior, accurate rear bumper and gorgeous hubcaps. That kit needs the Monogram's Eldorado donor for extra parts, such as front bumper, chassis and hood... I've painted this beauty with a dark colour to enhance the chrome details and I've add larger white walls. A must have in a Cadillac collection. Hope you'll like it ;)

I have always really liked that four hardtop design on all the GM name plates in 59 and 60 but you do not see them very often as models so great to see your Cady.

Nice!  I really like oddball or unique models - this one sure fits the bill.

So great to see a 4-door Caddy now and then - a rare sight in scale. Very nice model.

Really nice.  There were so many more of these on the street back then versus 2 doors.

Nice work! I wasn’t familiar with this Cadillac offering, but I think I like the flat top over the other ‘59 variants.

Nicely done. Too bad so many builders shy away from resin offerings.

Hi Tom, thanks !.  Yes indeed, it's also sad that there is no big choices in regular plastic kits anymore,  stock versions, of 1950-1985 american cars. Times where Jo-Han models were king is long gone. New generation now is more attracted with multimedia games, not much building car models. Then, from the NNL show coverages I can see here and there, customs ans lowriders are legion. Not my cup of tea at all...
