This is my first revell 1981/1990 Cadillac Coupe Deville. If you look closely you will see I've done a lot of little mods that I feel make all the differance.
As you can see in this picture I have added chrome daytons with gold knockoffs, detail washed the grill and put gold bmf around the soft top. I have also lowered the rear more that you will see anywhere else by grinding the rear suspention/ chassis with my dremmel drill untill they fit more snugly.
[attachmentid=272435]
Front shot, do you think I should gold plate the grill?
[attachmentid=272437]
trunk shot, all I did here was some detail painting and added the hoppin hydros amp.
[attachmentid=272439]
Under hood shot, sorry its so blury. just some detail painting and gold plated support bars.
[attachmentid=272442]
Interior shots, this is where I did the most work, I put gold bmf through out( which is a pain in the ass with all of the small details) painted the wood and detail painted the gauges, oh yeah I put the sun glasses on the dash board to :cool:
[attachmentid=272445]
[attachmentid=272447]
Chassis shot, You can sort of see here how I modded the rear suspention. Also I put a steel over coat on the exaust pipes, the grey plastic just didn't look real enough to me.
[attachmentid=272412]
Heres a couple overall shots
[attachmentid=272414]
[attachmentid=272421]
Thats all folks! :biggrin: Soon I am going to start wook on another Coupe Deville, that one will be made to look my real life car which is an almost all original '83 Coupe Deville. that means that I will need to back date the headlights and euro kit whick will be "fun" :happysad: Untill then, tell me what you think, peace!
