Goodday to all ,

This is a model kit of the V-150 Cadillac Commando from Hobby Boss in 1/35 scale , overall it is a detail and easy kit to build with very few problems in terms of fittings and gaps. The diorama build depicts the Malaysian Police force version of the Cadillac Commando that was used during the 60’s until 80’s against communist guerrilla groups during the Malaysia Communist Insurgency (1968-89). This scheme of the Cadillac is painted in flat dark sea blue using (Mr Hobby code C326). The figures used are from Tamiya 1/35 military figures and brief oil palm jungle terrain as the base of the diorama. I only applied mild weathering to the tires and underneath areas to create realism in the scene. Overall it was a fun build apart from that I would be doing another V-150 this time in 1/72 scale using the Ace model kit.

Thanks for reading !

  1. Hello Mee Wan,

    Different, but very interesting subject. Never knew that Cadillac was also in Armored Cars.
    Beautiful model and realistic scenery.

  2. Nice job. I think that’s Cadillac Gage, I don’t think it’s a GM Co.
