Showroom, Luxury Collectibles 1:43 Cadillac SRX

Among upper-crust CUVs, few have the sheer presence of the Cadillac SRX. It’s got Caddy DNA in its spade- shaped face and finny tail lamps, and its V6 power and humbler proportions call to those who want Caddy luxury in a smaller size. Fittingly enough, it’s Luxury—as in Luxury Collectibles—who have tooled up this 2011-vin- tage SRX in resincast 1:43. It’s a tidy little beastie; so finely cast and finished is the thing that the wee parking assist sensors in the bumpers are still crisply visible under the “Platinum Ice” paint. All of the lensing and add-on detail bits are convincing, and the badging is mind-boggling—it’s all done in photo-etch or foil; you can even read the “Cadil- lac” script engraved in the trim above the New Jersey (go figure) license plate. There’s a full leather-look interior behind tinted butyrate windows, and it sports wood-tone trim and seat belts with buckles; the shiny (maybe too) chrome wheels have steel brake discs behind, and a hair-thin antenna on top rounds out the piece nicely. This still-new company is making some attractive, premium grade model cars. —Joe Kelly Jr. luxurycollectibles.com
