A few years back someone was doing a conversion to turn the Aoshima kit into Max's 4 door Interceptor, does anyone remember it & where I might acquire one, thanks.

Pretty sure 'The Parts Box' do this car - https://www.thepartsbox.com/

Thank you, I know of this kit, it's 1/25 as a posed to Aoshima's 1/24 & it would look out of scale next to the Aoshima cars that's why I'm chasing the conversion set for the Aoshima car.

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. :)

I'm not sure I ever saw a conversion from the Aoshima kit available. I have an old Planet X kit of this one, which is so-so. The one at the link looks MUCH nicer than the one I have.

For your money and your trouble, the one at the link from The Parts Box might be the way to go...I have my eye on their Holden HQ for a Nightrider build...

I think the car in the pic is actually a 4-Door XB Falcon.

The car in the pic is a Falcon, that’s a screencap right from the film. Whatever they filmed on, it made the cars look squashed. 

The link I posted earlier does take you right to a 4 door Falcon kit. It looks like the best one available to me.

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.
