I got this resin body from eBay and I had an AMT 71 duster minus the body so i decided to make it work and with a little trimming of the chassis:

as you can see there was some filling to be done but there were only 3 air bubbles and were a quick fix so i was happy.

also i wanted to have a engine so i opened the hood, not too spectacular as i fount the resin a bit harder to scribe so its a little rough (i will add a bit of material around the hood and sand it to shape to get a better fit).

another good thing is i will get the nicely detailed duster chassis (although not quite accurate for a HQ but it does look good)

Here it is with paint:

i had to alter the leaf springs to move the rear axle forward a tiny bit so the rear wheels were more centered in the arches.

Ignore the "1958" on the plate holder it will be covered with a licence plate.

Engine bay will work nicely, i will just make a filler panel to go around the edges.

after fiddling with the wheels i got them where i want them.

 

The paint work looks much better outside so there will be new pics tomorrow.

 

Let me know what you think.

I got the engine/chassis/interior mostly completed (just needs a few little bits here and there)

 

I had a bit of a problem with the rear seat:

I sanded it back carefully and second attempt got it good.

The white on the seats is just not yet dried PVA glue.

Let me know what you think.

At least it has the motor & under pinnings of a real car, lol. Seriously though, nice work, always liked the HQ Monaro.
