Badillac
Posted by avidinha on Wednesday, March 14, 2018 11:18 AM

I made this with the Jimmy Flintstone resin body. The paint is black primer with Testors gold glitter then a few coats of transparent blue and a bunch of clear.

I used parts box headlights and tail lights, wheels and tires from a Monte Carlo glued right to the body and the windows are clear plastic I painted black and cut to fit.

Your "Badillac" turned out extremely nice. Love the color and the sparkle treatment as well as your trim being hi-lighted, and your wheel choice fits nicely also. All very nicely done.

This name"Badillac" and the design have quite a history you may be interested in.

It was first built about 10 years ago from plastic kits by a wonderful builder in France on another forum we are all familiar with..

I loved the design and asked permission to make something very close to the same shown here. 

His was called the "Badillac, so I named mine badillac ll, and then "Badillac" lll and Badillac iv soon followed by other builders smitten by the same design. We became a sort of mimi-club of "Badillac" builders.

The last guy to build a "Badillac" made a master and cast several more for himself and decided to sell the master to Jimmy Flinstone to make it available in large numbers to the public through Ebay.

The design is a '58 Cadillac with a Boyd Coddington Chezoom roof.

Mine is all plastic too and built about 10 years ago. I cut all the chrome trim from the body and had them chromed and painted it a custom mixed pearl peach.

I hope you enjoy the history to your finely done project.

Thanks Dave, I always appreciate your comments on my builds. I am aware of some of the history of the Badillac. I'm familiar with the first 3 and, if I'm not mistaken, mine is a copy of the original mastered by Zed. I didn't know that there was a 4th, I'll have to look for it, I'd like to see it.

 Nice you already have some knowledge of the history of your model. Sometimes that can really add to the enjoyment to a project.

Again I love your personalized treatment to a timeless design Thumbs Up

I love the Badillac build as well!  Dave I have a quick question for you sir. I have long been a fan of your builda. i was looking at the SAE Contest Annual 1988.  I saw your Trans Am mid engine.  I wonder if you have any more photos of that build you would be willing to share. I don’t know if it is easier to post them or if you could email them.  Or I can PM you my email address if there is a way to do that on this site. Again  if you are willing to do that.  I have loved that model since I first saw it in that issue at my friend’s house in 1991!  Thank you and again i love your model avidinha!
