  1. Thanks Anton, If I can make a part, I prefer to do that than buy aftermarket. So the valve covers are topped with a photo representation of the real thing. Cheers....Geoff
  2. A rainy day today, so more time to work on the Nova. Test fitting the engine, rollcage and fuel cell. All coming together quite well. Cheers....Geoff
  3. The HK Monaro and HK Premier are both available as bodies only or full kits from The Parts Box - thepartsbox.com , along with many other resin bodies and kits. I recommend their work highly, having purchased many times with 100% satisfaction. Cheers....Geoff
  4. Guys, Here are some of the resin or fibreglass repops of the HK and EH Holden promos. The HK promos are extremely accurate in scale. The EH Wagon not so much (I owned a full size one). They were produced by a company called Jaymar in Camperdown Victoria, obviously from original promos. I picked these up at very modest prices at either model shows or swap meets. Cheers....Geoff
  5. Guys, It is 1/25 scale and cost me $200 from a distant relative in Tasmania about 15 years or more ago. Alan's post above is very informative. Thanks Alan. I've included pics of the chassis plate which is quite detailed. The only wording on it is MADE IN AUSTRALIA. So for 1967/68, it showed we had the wherewithall to do excellent promos. And like most promos, the friction motor drives the front wheels. Cheers....Geoff
  6. Rollcage done! Just needs a cleanup and a lick of paint. Cheers.....Geoff
  7. A wet day outside so more time at the bench today. So far, I have fashioned the new rear wing and support struts. The rollcage additions are also going well. Cheers.....Geoff
  8. Tim, the Police here did in fact run Subaru WRXs, the standard versions, not the rally versions. Cheers......Geoff
  9. This is one of the promotional models released in 1967/8 to introduce the then new 1968 HK Holden Premier. Very few original promotional models remain, but many resin or fibreglass repops have found their way into the modelling community here in Australia. Cheers......Geoff
  10. Tamiya's Volvo 850 Saloon car with custom printed decals. Rattle can finish. Cheers.....Geoff
  11. Fujimi body over Tamiya (Texaco Ford Sierra) chassis and interior. Belts and details added. Custom laser printed decals. Rattle can finish. Cheers....Geoff
  12. Hasegawa kit built box stock with custom laser printed decals and phantom driver name. Rattle can finish. Cheers......Geoff
  13. Monogram kit built box stock with rattle can finish. Cheers....Geoff
  14. Tamiya's BMW 635CSI in Factory BMW race colours. Rattle can finish and built box stock. Cheers.....GEoff
  15. This is an Esci kit of the Ford Escort Mk II. Built box stock with white rattle can finish over the clear body. Paint has yellowed with age. Cheers....Geoff
