Scale I Build

  1. After reading the write ups here on the 1955 Cadillacs I decided i really needed one. I chose the Greenlight Series 60 in black just like in the Godfather movies. I also wanted it to fit right in size wise with the Welly drug store models which are also small(ish) and the Jada version would be way too big.
  2. A variety of examples from the various coachbuilders making "professional cars' on Cadillac chassis: https://www.newcadillacdatabase.org/static/CDB/Dbas_txt/prof59.htm
  3. I'm not fond of the custom sun visor, but the interior shots might be useful... https://hearseforsale.org/cadillac/1959-cadillac-hearse-meteor/ This one might be a combination ambulance/hearse. Note the linoleum floor with what appear to be casket rollers. http://davidsclassiccars.com/cadillac/69738-1959-cadillac-mm-futura-hearse-ambulance-m-m.html
  4. Hi guys. Today I share a rare Cadillac I have in my collection. As we know, the 1960 Cadillac promos ( as well as many from 1958 to 1962 ) are all deformed and warped now, but since kit versions were not produced with the same material, some are still straight, like mine. I have replaced the original wheels with the ones from the '59 Eldorado Monogram's kit, which are way more accurate. This Cadillac needs a bit of work and detailing but overall is worth to show its fins !. Hope you'll like it.
  5. The weather's finally warm enough for painting, so I've been laying some paint on a few projects that need them. Based on a car that was owned by a Mrs. Little, who eventually donated the car back to GM. Testor's Model Master Ford Engine Red turned out to be a decent match for the "Satan Red" exterior, while the interior is Humbrol #60 Matt Scarlet. Humbol Ivory was a closed enough match for the "Puritan White" wheels on the original.
  6. Hi guys. Here's a tribute to my own beloved 1973 Cadillac DeVille that I used to drive some years ago. I had a damaged 1973 Eldorado promo left that I wanted to restore with the exact same colours combination than my late DeVille. So here she is, with new paint and polished coats, interior wood-ish door panels, carpeting, white walls, front and rear fender shock absorber lines and detailed bumpers, detailed hood with thin gold lines. Scripts needs attention and I aslo need to find side mirrors, which is quite hard to do !. Anyway, hope that Caddy will please some of you. Cheers.
  7. Hi guys. Hope everyone's doing good. Here's my last build, this is a very rare R&R Resin kit of a '62 Coupe Deville I have since at least a decade. It is converted from the Fleetwood 60S by JoHan. I had poorly painted it with a saturated turquoise blue back then and had never been happy with it. Needed a good restauration. So, I offered the Cadillac a new two tone dress, as close as "Pompeian Red Metallic" with an off-white top. Black and white interior with black carpeting. Painted accent hubcaps and new hand made chromed V crests. Hope you'll like it. Thanks !
  8. Nice reissue. Lots of parts, can be built stock height if you wish, will require parts box wheels and tires for stock look.
  9. While I wait for some bmf for my copo build I pull out the 59 eldorado and put it on the work bench. Nothing special with this one. Basically a box stock build. Wired engine. Hot pink over black which will give it...well let me dig up a picture of a convertible I built a few years ago.
  10. Hi guys ! Sharing with you my newest build. Made from a damaged JoHan's 1971 Coupe Eldorado promo, this convertible is starting a new life. New metallic paint and clear coats, new wheels and white walls, detailed interior and dash, soft boot, etc... After a long sleep rusting in a barn, the caddy now enjoys the quite roads of Route 66 . A special thanks for the beautiful diorama made from a talented friend of mine. Times are hard now, so keep safe everybody. Cheers !
  11. I would not have anticipated buying any more Jada diecasts until this 1/24 1947 Cadillac Series 62 convertible with an up top and almost normal wheels popped up on my radar. It came today and I am glad to have gotten it though I am not sure what the appeal is.
  12. 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
  13. Hi guys....Here's a family picture of the Cadillacs I have converted, built, restored this year...Many new ones on the plans for 2020. Hope to be able to have the time to make them all.
  14. Hi Guys, Sharing with you the first "light" restoration/conversion of the year. I had this Jo-Han's 1972 Cadillac Promo in decent body condition but the paint had some scratches, especially on the roof. After some paint clean-up, I decided to build it with an option that Cadillac was offering that year, the Custom Cabriolet edition, a half padded vinyl roof option on Eldorado models, with curved edges wrapped around the B pillar's side base. In comparison, the "regular" Eldorado Coupes had the entire roof covered with vinyl, with straight edges on the B pillar. I have detailed the interio
  15. Today I share with you my last build, a Cadillac of course. It's a Page Resin kit, probably converted from the Fleetwood 1962 made by Johan. As it's not a mass produced kit and it is made by hand, it needs a fair amount of preparation to get the final assembly right. Overall the kit's quality is very good, comes complete with chassis, glass and bumpers but no chrome plated parts... so as it is now impossible to find someone or a company trustworthy enough to offer this service, I had to use an old wrapped JoHan donor for the chromes. These "Deville" series have never been made by Johan ( who m
  16. Hi guys, Today I share with you my latest Cadillac Conversion/restauration. This is a Stretched limousine made from the 1979 Jo-Han's coupe Deville. I received the model in a decent shape but it needed a total restauration, as the previously made conversion was showing age and unaccurate doors and roof. Cause of its extra long wheelbase, It couldn't be treated as a "regular" series 75 limousine so I thought about a "Moloney-ish" conversion. This Cadillac received new sculpted door and windows design treatment, sculpted front and rear shock absorber lines, new higher roof with larger B and
  17. https://www.newcadillacdatabase.org/static/CDB/Dbas_txt/V16_ndx.htm Just about everything you could want to know about Cadillac's V-16 model. It includes, technical specs, history, and a list of surviving V-16s, with photos. Lots of inspiration if you're doing a Jo-Han Cadillac, or any classic car.
  18. Hi Guys ! Here I would like to introduce you to my Cadillac Escalade. The model is by Revell USA in 1:25 scale. A nice construction kit, but in which the engine is shown only from below in the bottom plate. There are decals for different types of decorative stiffeners, the attachment requires patience. In addition, the kit has two different sets of wheels. Greetings to all from Jan
  19. Hi everyone. Yes, you've read correctly "hardtop". Although I know the brand for the last 30 years, I had never heard or seen any 1963 Cadillac Eldorado in that body version before, until a couple of years ago. Indeed, Original Part Group, Inc brought out an unbelievable and gorgeous 1963 Cadillac freshly restored for the 2014 SEMA show. According to the group, it looks like only 9 to 12 estimated units have been made at the time, knowing that Cadillac produced only Eldorado "biarritz" convertibles that year. The car is visible on the group website and on Youtube. I guess that if the car
  20. Hi guys ! Sharing with you today this Jo-Han's 1969 Cadillac Deville convertible, my first build of 2019. It's a promo that I have converted into the convertible version, as Jo-Han never proposed this specific model. ( just the Coupe Deville and the Eldorado ). If I recall, I think I got that promo for 3 bucks about 15 years ago because it was totally damaged. Half of the roof was gone, such as A pillars and windshield. The body looked like a cat had chew big parts of it, was full of little dents and most of the original paint was scratched. I didn't know what to do with it at the time b
  21. Hi guys ! This time again I am sharing with you my last transformation. Another Cadillac of course!. Last fall I discovered that Hasegawa had released a new version of their "Amercian 66" Series, ( including their Coupe Deville ) into a "lowrider" series. I jumped on the occasion to buy 2 kits in order to create from them a series 75 limousine. Hasegawa's kits are not as refine as the Jo-Han's Coupe Deville of the same year, but working from Johan's 66 Caddies is inconcevable to me, since these promos or kits are very rare and really expensive. And to be honest, Hasegawa's are really good
  22. Hi guys ! Sharing today an old built, the Cadillac Coupe De Ville 1976 by Modelhaus. As these kits are ultra rare now I just regret to have built it at a time where my skills weren't as good as they are today. I could restore it completely though. I guess this Cadillac's still presentable and worth a few pics here, don't you think ? ...Ah, If only Revell would stop doing Customs and Lowriders to offer more old "stock" american cars !
  23. Hi guys. This Cadillac is a Page Resin kit. The cast was very good but needed some prep. Originally looking more like a regular DeVille series, I've turned and built it into the Fleetwood series, with lower body trims added, a matching interior and a "Brougham-ish" upholstery. Definitely one of my favourite Cadillac in my collection.
  24. Hi guys, Sharing with you today an old built, made by Modelhaus. This is the '61 Cadillac Coupe series 62. It's now very very rare and I regret I haven't buy more than one at the time, to make a convertible or an Eldorado from it. I built it around 10 years ago, not pristine but presentable, IMHO. I also regret, (and I am sure I'm not the only one here), that Modelhaus is not around anymore....the quality was excellent. I am glad that they made amazing hubcaps for that model, way better that what Jo-Han's made for its 1961 Fleetwood. Enjoy !
