New Lux, Kyosho Style: Upcoming 1:18 Cadillac SLS Preview Pics!

Dec 17, 2012 No Comments by

Kyosho has been doing some very good work on American luxury cars this past couple of years, thanks to an agreement with an outside vendor with a distinct flair for GM’s upper-crust brands. So far, we’ve been given a CTS sedan (and its CTS-variant), and we’ve been promised a CTS coupe in both iterations as well (haven’t seen that one, yet). Add this one – an SLS sedan – to the list of top shelf rides from the Motor City.

From the look of things, the model will join the others as being a heavily featured (and, if it’s built the same way, just plain heavy) offering with skads of finger fun on tap; this apparently early deco shot has the look of the Cadillac down right, all the way to the steel discs behind the nicely cast wheels.

We’re on the list for this one – and all of the soon-to-be-released Kyosho cars – so stay tuned; we’re big fans of Detroit lux, and these look to be something well worth waiting for. We’ll see.

About the author

I was always crazy about toy cars and car-themed play sets, but I got hooked on car models when my cousin sent me a pair of built-up AMT kits - a '61 Continental and a '57 Thunderbird. I was six or seven years old when another cousin - Carl - showed me how to build and paint, and by the time I was nine, I had a pretty good collection and a great "spares box" on hand. The original Auto World catalogs were my dream books; my allowance was spent before it was ever earned, and I knew every hobby store and model retailer on Long Island. Then came slot cars, Cox .049-engined Baja Buggies and airplanes, and, ultimately, the real things. I still have some of those old models, and when time allows, I still build or detail scale cars. But it's the ready-to-display replicas and scale racing models that have really had me jazzed for the past fifteen years or so. The "mint" diecasts and the 1:18 American Muscle cars that I cut my serious collecting (and writing) teeth on back then led straight to the current crop of offerings from high-end makers and models in every scale. I also love scale model photography, and shooting, scoring, and producing videos of the models I love. I'm a proud member of the DiecastSpace Diecast Hall of Fame, as well as the Diecast Car Collectors' Club Diecast Scale Model Hall of Fame. I'm also proud to be a part of the Die Cast X Team, and as Editor-in-Chief, I'm looking forward to years of growing the publication and showing new collectors how much fun this hobby can be. And, yeah - I still have that spares box.
