'59 Cadillac

Here's my Cadillac. This was done box-stock. I had originally planned on doing some things to it, but it went together so easily and I thought it looked good as is, so I ended up not doing anything extra to it. Paint is Krylon Short cuts Hot Pink.

Hard to believe this kit is old now. I remember the buzz it created when it came out about how crisp and detailed it was and you did a great job with it. I remember people at the time saying there's really not much extra to add.

Must belong to Elvis? Great job, my all time favorite car. American excess epitomized.

Really nice job, Scott. I've had this kit on my project list for a couple of years. Your model might get me going on it.

Is all the chrome trim Bare Metal Foil?

Thank you all for the kind words.

Larry, it is all BMF. I used the regular chrome sheet. If I were to do it again, I'd do the ultra bright chrome so it would match the kit chrome a little more.

that's cool, Derick - I hope she has fun with it. My wife builds models too (as do most of my kids). It's a nice hobby to do together
