2006 Cadillac Escalade
Posted by mrmike on Friday, May 10, 2019 2:29 PM

My new project and the return of McNally, Boston PI.  This story is called The Other Woman and it is a work of fiction.  All persons described in this story are not related to any one living or deceased.

The Build

Revell's Cadillac Escalade kit #85-4482.  My paint will be Tamiya TS-18 Metallic Red with Tamiya AS-15 Tan (USAF).  Upon opening this kit, I was kind of disappointed that this kit is a curbside and not a full detail kit.  The box art is deceiving as well.  The box art shows a long wheelbase Escalade and the model is a standard wheelbase model.  I need to find some mesh for the grille and I may attempt to convert the exhaust system to a true dual tailpipe system.

The Story

The tall and well dressed man walks off the elevator and into Attorney Charlotte Rothmann's new office suite and he checks in with Mandi, Charlie's receptionist.  He is about 50 years old, but he looks much younger than he actually is.  Charlie calls him into her office and offers him a seat across from her desk.  "I have been served with papers for divorce by my wife, Liza."  He presents her with the papers and Charlie quickly reads through them.

"I need all your financials and assets papers if we are to move forward," says Charlie.  Damian Williston agrees to Charlie's request and then they discuss her fees and the process ahead.  Damian says thank you and he leaves Charlie's office.  McNally is sitting outside in the waiting room and Charlie calls him in.  "I have a new assignment for you," she says.

McNally will return... 

"That's Spenser with an 'S' like the poet."

The Story

At home, McNally starts doing background checks on Damian and Liza through the apps he has on his computer.  Liza works part-time from home for a make-up manufacturer and retailer.  She has a savings account with about $2500 in it.  She has been driving an older 2009 Land Rover Discovery with about 80,000 miles on it.  She has kept up the massive house and property in Brookline on her own for the last 6 months and she keeps a good eye on her two children.

Damian Williston has a home on Beacon Hill on Beacon St.  His sports car and his motorcycle are back in Brookline.  He has a savings account with about $40,000 in it.  He owns two small businesses and a large software firm.  He has a 2006 Cadillac Escalade in excellent condition with about 90,000 miles on it.  The Escalade is treated better than he or his family is.

The Build

I started off with assembling the wheels and tires.  I am not too crazy about the overly large wheels and tires in this kit, even if the tire sidewalls do have detail on them.  I have a set of Pegasus 23" Phat Daddy's that I may use instead.  They are five spoke wheels and are generally the same as the HUGE kit wheels.

I spent about 10-15 minutes searching for moldlines and flash on this body.  I found some on the cowl edges and a little flash near the rear hatch opening.  The body is ready for a good washing and then primer and paint!

So far, I haven't gotten too much done on the Escalade.  I should have more done on Wednesday.

More to come...

The Story

McNally needed more information from Damian and he drives out to Damian's home on Beacon Hill, were he was greeted by the sight of several Police cars and the Crime Scene Unit truck.  He is allowed onto the scene after he shows his PI credentials and asking to talk to the detective in charge, Lt. Det. Adam Troy.  Damian's girlfriend, Tina Leavitt was found murdered in his kitchen.  Lt. Troy tells him that Damian is in the living room with his personal attorney, Wilmot Jackson and McNally thought that Charlotte Rothmann was his attorney.  In the living room, McNally is introduced to Attorney Jackson who tells the Boston PI that he and Attorney Rothmann are no longer needed and that he needs t leave the premises.

McNally asks Damian is that what he wants and Damian just shrugs and stares to the floor.  He turns and leaves the house, walking down the granite steps to the sidewalk and pulling out his cellphone and calling Charlie.  He tells her about the dismissal by Attorney Jackson.  Charlie says she'll find out from Damian what is going on and she'll figure out what to do next.

The Build

The exhaust system has been upgraded to a true dual tailpipe system instead of the dual into one into two exhaust.

I painted many parts of the Escalade yesterday.

Now for some detailing and assembly.

McNally will return...

The Story

The following morning, McNally arrives at the Courthouse to give testimony in another case that he had worked on, but walking down the hallway to the courtroom, he sees Attorney Wilmot Jackson.  Attorney Jackson asks why McNally is in the Courthouse and tells him that he is no longer wanted on Damian Williston's case.  "Until I am told by my superiors, I will remain investigating this case."  Attorney Jackson says that McNally is in his way of defending his client and McNally replies that if he is in the way, then Attorney Jackson is the reason for his being there.  

McNally gives Damian's attorney a hard look and continues walking to the Courtroom.  Attorney Jackson says, "Damn fool!  I'll show him."

The Build

The chassis is nearly finished.

McNally will return...
