Detailed Model Cars

From bare metal hoods to plaid upholstery, the Allison Sedanca

lives up to the DMC tradition of Extreme Models.

 

 

 

The Allison engine fills up the engine compartment, and the covered wheels

are gratifyingly understated.

 

 

The sunburst pattern on the doors was popular with cars of this era, and

espcially with Gurney Nutting.   The lightweight 'aluminum' structure of the

door is more like an airplane than a car.

 

 

The dashboard has plenty of gauges and was inspired by a prototype PII Rolls-Royce

powered by a Merlin V-12 which had even more instrumentation.

 

 

The underside of the model is as much fun to look at as the top side.  Between

water pipes and oil lines, ther is not much spare space.

 

 

The plaid upholstery matches the headliner and echoes the later practice of

race cars in the fifties.  It was the Elves' first experience with fabric upholstery.

 

 

"Blade" running boards are a signature DMC addition to monsters.

 

 

Working top has a folding brass frame that disappears when the front section is

rolled up to expose the driver's compartment.

 

 

Bare aluminum hoods, huge exhaust pipes, and an undeniably brutal aspect--

the Elves are happy.

 

Wheel discs make this view a bit more sinister--a good thing.

This shows the 1:87 model in the rear compartment which hides the battery, as well

as the roof compartment that hides the folding top mechanism.

The digital photos on this site are unaltered.  Well, 'unaltered' may be a bit of an exaggeration, but for the most part they bear

some semblance to the models depicted.  If you see dust, the image is dead nuts on.  If there is no dust, it is something of a crapshoot, but

captures the essence of the model without the distractions of  background clutter and pet hair and  the odd insect wing or bird dropping.
