Jada 1950s Cadillac Diecast Model Car Kit




This is a 1/24 scale Jada die cast Cadillac. It was originally a rat rod type custom I bought. It was covered in a dark grey primer color, with some pinstripe graphics.

It included 2 sets of wheels, and for some reason, I thought it would look better in color. When I got it home I disassembled the whole car, being careful not to break any tabs or screws.

So I then sanded the body and painted it silver, then painted it an automotive metallic red with a Testors clear coat.

The carson type top was also gray, which was ugly, so I repainted it white.

Then I reassembled it, doing some touch up painting along the way, including the undercarriage and door jambs.

Overall, it was nice to take a break and simply redo a car model rather than start with an entire kit to assemble.

Though, by rebuilding one yourself, you don't get any assembly instructions !

If you would ike to re-build and paint your own diecast cars, check out this issue of Scale Model Life. It's all about updating and building diecast cars -
