1959 Cadillac Eldorado, in 1/32 scale: About 8 inches longs. ALL wood. Although I didn’t design it, this was not a kit. I scratch made every part, including the gas and brake pedals under the dash. A plastic kit was used to pattern it off of.
The colors are all the natural color of the wood. The Red is Padauk, the “White” is Maple, the black tires are Ebony and the chassis and running gear are Walnut. I don’t recall what I made the grill and bumpers from. The only thing that’s not wood, is the clear coat. I didn’t even put a windshield in it, so it would be all wood.
A friend of mine challenged me, in 1984 and I completed the Caddy in 1985. Has been in my glass case all these years. Only car I’ve done, in this much detail.
