Those tags sure look funny!

Does this kit has a place for an electric motor in the rear?

I have a chinese knock-off of this one - I just wanted to make it with rear suspension and I would have to re-chrome the chrome parts (they have a lot of flash...)

Your model looks good - thanks for sharing and have a nice day

Everyone over in Model Cars Mag forum who replied to a thread of mine there said that with this Caddy the up top convertible fits much better than the hard top and there isn't much you can do about it without a bunch of reconstruction. What did you find ?

My wife and I were looking into late 50's Cadillac kits for a his and hers build ( one each, she likes pink Cadillacs, I would do blue lol). I guess there are not a ton of options in 1/25, a few more in 1/32 from Revell though.

Anyway other than over in that forum till now I've never seen any built. Nice job and thanks for sharing.

I would say that the fit of the roof was not too bad ,just needed a bit of added trim where the roof met the body at the rear quarter panel.The overall fit was pretty good no major issues.I opened and hinged the doors and the trunk .
