So... Many of you guys probably already expected this one, after seeing the hearse. Several have even hinted at it. I wasn´t actually going to build this, but in the end the temptation was too big. But I´ll probably leave it out of the Mega-project though... (Seeing that the Ghostbusters appeared a cuarter of a century later than what I want to portray in the diorama)
I thought this one was going to be an easy build, having the hearse to work from, but as it turned out, a lot of details had to be changed. The windscreen is half a stud further forward, and the back window was changed entirely, using a elegantly stepped profiling of the cabin (passing from 6-5-4 studs width inspired from Misterzumbi´s Ecto.) Alas it doesnt really show because of the ladder and tubes connecting to the roof...
I wouldn´t call these guys unelss I was absolutly terribly desperate. -And even then I´m not quite sure... ;-)

Wow, that's so cool! Excellent shaping and amazing details on the roof top! Great job! :-)) Maybe you could make an Ambulance based on the Caddy for your big project...
You know, this is really a subject that i think a lot about; To keep it. To change it into an ambulance (which would just make me long for the Ghostbusters version anyway) -or change it into an elegant white convertible for a famous Rock´n´Roll star. (Seeing as a pink version is not going to happen...)
What to doż?
if I where you, Id leave it in the dio, as a touch of humour, but, I d also consider changing it into an ambulance, depending on the seriousness of the dio,it s sure to get attention and admiration, because it s beautiful and loved by many people.

Are you building at the rate you post, or do you build over a long period and then post them in bursts?
Thanks man! :-) -I actually post at the speed I build. Many of the good ideas you see are outright ...borrowed... from other builders.
Most of these cars take just one or two days to build. The 2CV took just a couple of hours.
There will now be a break in the building&posting for a week or two because of work. :-(
The curved slope for the rear door, between the tail fins...so simple and yet absolutely perfect shape. You keep knocking these cars out again and again, and I never see any slippage in quality what so ever. Are you building at the rate you post, or do you build over a long period and then post them in bursts? As always, astounding work. Attack!
