Here's everything I know:  "1/43 Equipe Tron Automodelli 1947 Cadillac 62 Coupe Fast Back. Car is a Seine Blue and French Gray."

I am getting ready to start working on a Tron kit, a '55 Dodge.  I purchased it on the "used" market and was trying to find some information about EQUIPE TRON (Italy).  That's when I bumped into this Cadillac.  The Dodge seems pretty good and I'm looking forward to building it.  Has anyone ever owned or even seen the Cadillac?  Click on any picture for enlarging.

   Thanks for any information.

(later)  I just found this Cadillac as an unbuilt kit on eBay, listed as

TRON KITS CADILLAC 62 - 1947 - UNBUILT RESIN KIT 1:43 - VERY GOOD IN BOX

Especially with very high mailing fee, it's beyond me;  I just don't pay this much for a kit, given my propensity for messing up.  But it looks interesting.

The Cadillac is very nice. I bought one already assembled last year. I've not seen one in kit form. I don't know anything about the kits, but that is beyond my abilities anyway.

Here's mine.

Like John, I did dare attempt a resin Tron kit, so I bought a factory built Alfa Giulietta Spider years ago...

Paolo Tron is still around but not selling much these days. He's on FB with all the 'usual suspects'.

 This 1947 Cadillac coupe and sedan are resin kits marked Provence Moulage.  Not sure it these are related to Tron or not,  or what the connection, if any between Tron and PM was.    The convertible is a Brooklin.

 And here's a Tron 1955 Dodge convertible and one of these converted into a La Femme

 And what is on the work bench today,  a Arena Models kit of a 1954 Dodge Royal hardtop to be built stock, not in Panamericana racing livery.

Good projects, John.  Your skills are most admirable.   The Dodge I'm building is the same as your '55, but I'm using different colors.  Thanks for all your good information.

My one and only remaining Tron model, built by Paolo. The 1950 Olds that won the Carrera Panamerica.

Provence Moulage built 1/43 models for Tron.  My Alfa Romeo is marked as such...
