    Get some foil adhesive and brush it on where you want to put your foil. It will keep it stuck down on the flat paint. 

    Also good under that ultra chrome foil that has a reputation for not sticking.

    This is what I use.

    One could use plain old "white glue", it's the same stuff, just a whole lot cheaper & it does the same job.

    Recently a young bloke I know who's autistic & likes the S & H Torino wanted to build a model of it after seeing mine. 

    I purchased 1 for him & we built it together, no painting, just as it came out of the box (a 1st for me), he glued & assembled, I done the decals, I've never seen someone so happy at such a basic build, that model & it's box are displayed with great pride on his bookshelf.

    I could not wait for the rerelease so i bought another papa truck and decals from modeltruckin
    The only not rereleased in the pic is the Bandag Bandit.
    They do look great standing next to eachother.

    They look awesome. I'm guessing the rear wheels stick out past the guards on the hideout truck as they do with the Papa truck, I had a heck of a time getting them tucked under the guards on mine, I also used Auslowes torsion bar suspension on my Papa truck which didn't make things any easier. 

    Can't wait for the Bandag Bandit & Hideout truck to complete the set. These 2 are a lot easier to paint as well.

    Thank you all for your help.

    The car pictured is the Max Rockatansky/The Dark One, 351, XB, 4 door Falcon. March Hare's was a 250 in line 6 cylinder XA 4 door Falcon. Big Bopper's was a 302, XB 4 door Falcon (ex cop car). Max's black 2 door was a 351 XB GT Falcon. The black car is a Pursuit Special, this fact is made very clear in the 1st movie, it was only called the Interceptor in the 2nd movie.

    I went to school in the same building complex at the same time that the MM2 cars were being built. There are 2, 2 doors used in the 2nd movie, the original MM1 car & a copy. They are easy to tell apart, the original has its windshield wipers & it's 2 tone paint scheme still on the sides but not on the bonnet (hood), the copy has neither & also the interior does not have as much junk in it as the original does. 

    The Parts Box Max cars are 1/25 scale & will look out of place next to my 1/24 Aoshima kits & as I'm autistic, this will not do.

    found this from a google search. I dont know if it is what you're looking for though      http://cs.finescale.com/fsm/modeling_subjects/f/6/t/13623.aspx

    Thank you but not what I'm looking for, these are the parts to convert the Aoshima kit back to the MM1 Pursuit Special, these I have. 

    The conversion kit I'm looking for requires cutting part of the roof & doors & removing the entire rear section of the Aoshima kit & grafting on the resin 4 door section, it also came with the XB GT grill, both bumpers, 4 door interior & some other odds & sods. 

    There were also conversion kits to do Big Bopper & March Hare's cars using the Aoshima kit as the base. 

    I guess now there's the 1/18 de cast that's just being recently released (tires look weird) it won't be long before a 1/24 scale die cast is done. I'd still prefer to build my own just to satisfy my OCD. :)

    You mean the base? Its just a bottom of the display case it will be living in. Dust is a scale model cancer, and I usually seal them in individual boxes to stop that.

    Thanks all!

    My brother & I call these cars mobile ramps because of their shape & if you drop the front wheels off & you have a ramp. Sorry for not explaining my original comment a bit better. Still a very nice build.
