2021 Cadillac CT4 RWD Sedan Turbo 4

One I had to have to complete my "last of the Cadillac cars" set.  Not sure how much longer Cadillac will be producing cars, the CT6 was phased out a few years ago but NOW I have all three: CT4, CT5 & CT6.

NOTE: I do have a top-of-line Sony digital....   the more I see just how bad my pics are (and oh, that dust!!) ..the more I think I should be using it.  🤔 🤨 🤔 

Anyway... this 1/18 CT4 is very nice.  Good shut lines, nice finish (even if color-matching is a bit off) and decent detail. A few things like the rear seats and the windshield mounted camera/sensor proved to be all but impossible to shoot (...with my poor skills.  Rich would have NO problem 😎 ). 

I love trunks, this one is great and it includes that right-side "pocket."  The cup holders fooled me. Until I saw my pics, I thought they were "drilled down." 

Well, for all who care (too modern & boring for some I know..) here it is:

CT4 21
CT4 17
CT4 1
CT4 12
CT4 13
CT4 4
CT4 5
CT 4 6
CT 4 7
CT 4 8
CT4 11
CT 4 9
CT4 8
CT4 19
CT4 3
CT4 2
CT4 20
CT4 14
CT4 15

You know, it's funny....  just a few years ago, "dark wheels" did NOTHING for me either.  I must admit, the more I see them on the road NOW, the more I like them (especially when they're shinny black). Love them or hate them however, I'm glad to have them represented in my collection.

Very nice replica ! I was happy to see Cadillac get back to more RWD (or AWD) cars for performance or other advantages. This looks like a fine representation and I would like it even if it were a static model done in resin or diecast.

Yes, yours looks better to me too.... One question though (..and this is where I'd have a problem because I'm nuts)..   

Q: We know Ford offered dark rims on these Mustangs, but did they offer a silver version (like yours)?  🤔 🤨 🤔

@chris   

I don't think so...lol.  That's what 'personal customizing' is all about !! I'm not that 'nuts' about authenticity Smile

Some things yes and others no. When it comes to wheels I had no choice as the 2 'stangs offered both had black wheels. 

It was a bit of an issue to paint them so as not to mess up the center wheel caps. I held my breath to try and keep a steady hand.    Smile

Ford offers 2 sets of rims & both are dark, the base set & the carbon fiber rims, as part of the Carbon Fiber Track Pack...which is the version Maisto modeled.

Great looking CT4, @chris.  Really like the color.  Wonder if they'll do the Blackwing version?

Thanks Gavin for the info on the Mustang rims. Thanks also for the "Caddy compliments." Yes, a Blackwing CT4 (or even CT5) would be great to see, but I doubt we ever will. ☹️

Yes, so would I Steve. I have a "better than average" collection of 1/18 Cadillacs but NO resin jobs (..which sadly, would fill in the gaps). But yes, I'd love too see some specific 1/18 diecast Cadillacs: ATS Coupe, 1960-1962, 1957, 1971... and PLEASE a 1967 Cadillac Sedan de Ville!

Who knows what the future will bring? 😏

I'd be drooling all over a diecast 1/18 '67 Eldorado with fully opening parts. 

Darn it, Yat Ming gave us a very nice '66 Toro !
