1959 Cadillac Eldorado Hardtop.
I love to build Cadillac car’s as I owned 3 of them starting out in 1951, which is a long time ago.
This 1/25th scale Cadillac “Eldorado” Hard Top kit was made by Revell. All the parts were nicely formed and as you can see there was next to no flashing. I was able to drill in the spark plug wire holed in the tiny distributor and insert the blue spark plug wires. The 3 Cadillac that I owned had black wires, but I choose to make my model wires using a different color. Long ago I bought lots of different color coated 0.10″ diameter wires at “Radio Shack ” here in America.
The car’s interior seats and other parts were painted, then went together A-OK!
I doubled checked the diameter of all four road wheels and made sure they were the same size as I did not want the car to set on only 2 or 3 wheels.
You will notice that I forgot to paint the letters on the bottom of the front fenders with chrome paint.
I used Tamiya paint’s.
