Big Scale model sitting under a thin layer of silicone 



Grinded down old silicone molds and mixed it with a batch of fresh silicone to save materials. Lot of work though.

 


Hydrocal gypsum support mold.

 


Slush cast model using Smooth cast 300.

 

First pull looks really good still need to smooth things out and restore some elements. When the model is done a new mold will be made.

The 1/25 RC Cadillac Lowrider Project

Posted by jevries on Saturday, May 7, 2011,


The main focus with this model is to create an authentic looking rear drive setup complete with drive shaft.
I did quite a lot of experimenting to come up with a rear drive setup that works and look good. After looking everywhere on the internet I was not able to find a nice looking universal joint so I had to create one myself using brass.



Trail and error. The micro gear motor with 10:1 gear ratio is the ideal motor for this cruiser. It's small and has lot's of torque and speed.  



I tried diffe...

Mario Montano's '90's Cadillac Fleetwood lowrider

 
For years it has been a wish of mine to create a 1/25 radio controled ' '96 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham model also know as the big body Cadillac.

I'm obsessed with the '96 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham for many years now and that's the reason why I wanted to create a large scale model of it. 5 years ago I started to build one but I did not prepare myself enough to pull it of. 

 

 A year ago I gave it another shot collecting hundreds of pictures from the internet and with help of my homie Mario Montano from Imperials C.C. in Phoenix who did all the measuring using his own Cadillac Fleetwood.

Creating the 1/24 RC Cadillac Brougham

Posted by Jevries on Monday, February 22, 2010,

 
 Way before I build Real Deal '64 Impala I had this idea in mind to create a full function RC 1/24 miniature lowrider that performs almost every trick and still feature an interior.

  

After I finished Real Deal '64 I started working on the design for the setup that differs from Real Deal because I wanted it to be very solid and pretty maintance free. The front setup is solid enough to make it hop although in this case I left the hopping out since I wanted to build a classic lowrider cru...
