  1. Evening all Welcome to my next build: the Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz 1959! The ultimate chrome 50s monster American car! This is the car I really wanted to build but not wanting to pay silly money for the revell version I build the Chrysler 300C instead. When this one came up on a bidding site I just couldn't resist and was really chuffed when I won the auction. You can build the car with the roof on or folded back. I am going with the folded back look as in the box art. I really like doing car interiors and this will really give me an opportunity to go to town on the interior detailing. Here's the box The kit was already started. The previous owner had painted it in Ford metallic velvet purple and clear coated it (and done a very good job I have to say). However that was not the colour scheme I wanted so into the IPA bath it went. I started this build earlier in the year as I wanted to get all required parts painted and clear coated before the weather turned. I had three things in mind for the colour scheme. 1) metallic colour for the body, 2) quite a light colour for the interior to really contrast with the body colour and 3) I didn't want to replicate one of the original colour schemes I also didn't fancy experimenting with a new brand of paint or brush painting the body as I did on my Mustang and prelude builds so I restricted myself to the tamiya TS range. I ended up choosing TS-54 light metallic blue for the body and TS-45 pearl white for the interior. Here is the car body And all the various bits and bobs I had to spray paint Hopefully I've not forgotten any... I'll be using this car as a reference (courtesy of mecum auctions)
  2. This is my oldest model. Its the original issue Ecto-1a from AMT. I bought this in about 1992 from Comet Miniatures i think. Its been sitting in a box in the loft for the last few years and it was covered in dust and dirt. I got it downd and cleaned it up yesterday. I must say im impressed with my modelling skills from the 90s! Theres a few small things like the ariel and tail lights missing. I was tempted to redo some of it , but i think i will leave it as a kind of time capsule. I may get the reissue and build it to go along side. It will be interesting to see if my skills have progressed at all over the last 19 years! See i can actually keep something without selling it!!!
