Boss Hogg '70 Cadillac Deville


Recommended Posts

Meant to post this earlier when I finished it.  Had to combine two kits to make it.  Plenty of scratchbuilding in this one, including seat detailing, CB radio and antenna, rear view mirror, sun visors and of course the steer horns.

Very intense build; here is a link to the in-progress photos: http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/142988-boss-hogg-70-cadillac-deville-convertible/

And now, on to the photos....

Oh, yes, below the windscreen....those white plugs are sheet styrene.  I cut pieces that would fit the hole, then welded it in with clear liquid cement.  Then, sanding to shape, and the final blemishes are touched up with superglue sanded to shape, or Tamiya white putty also sanded to fill.  Then once primed and painted, you can't tell there was ever a problem, if I did it right.

Scroll down further and you'll see a similar repair to the rear left taillight fin, as well as making a replacement for the top of the windscreen frame.

That's alot of work, but looks awesome !
How long do you estimate that Boss's Caddy took you to complete ? Just curious.
