79 Cadillac DeVil
Posted by arcturus on Saturday, June 6, 2020 2:07 PM

Andf indeed it was a devil. I bought it built up off EbayUK. Hand painted in skyblue with a black vinyl roof and an interior that had been left white plastic. Faded chrome, no hood ornament and the typcial wonky JoHan white bands.
The hardest about this restoration was the windows. The bottoms of the glass had been glued up and hard to buff out the excess glue. In fact it had gone straight through the glass, so theres a few small white patches on the window. Luckily they're close to the hood so can barely notice.

I scratch built a hood ornament, used a Modelhaus door mirror, and luckily had a sprue with some better cadillac bumoers on (no idea where I got that from )

It reminds me of the mafia cadillac on the John Candy film, Armed and dangerous.

Nice job arcturus. It's a shame models kits like this are so scarce because I have a great appreciation for this generation of Cadillac.
