80s Pro street DDA hq Holden

Hello I’ve been awaiting starting this build for a while now but I’m finally able to start as my ranchero is nearly on the way to be done and the nova awaits painting of the body I can start to work on a Holden model kit finally. IMG_6454.jpeg.c866c7ad980805cb66451533c776fd54.jpeg here’s the 80s pro street look I’m going for. I’ve got a 1:1 scale hk Holden ute that will be built exactly like that ute there but just with a single headlight front

that’s all for now

The kit is very good it all snaps together and is highly detailed IMG_0390.thumb.jpeg.407581b4702404e8b2aeabcf007f2c6b.jpeg  
IMG_0389.thumb.jpeg.052c934192fefc9b15c2f42355ac077a.jpegit has had no glue on it and it snaps together and even the boot is detailed image.thumb.jpg.ca1f508d0c07e6cf0f72449d21c4f297.jpg

I look forward to following your build. I'm a big fan of the Ute and Monaros. I bought a new '05 Pontiac GTO that you will recognize as a Monaro in drag.

Update I have just about completed the interior but the front bucket seats have been stripped and await to be primed then painted and I’m currently scratch building a b and m shifter for it but that’s all for now IMG_0471.thumb.jpeg.68e72ed2fa197fab747250fc23992ea6.jpegIMG_0472.thumb.jpeg.8696451ad67191fa8597773f31ced0bd.jpegIMG_0469.thumb.jpeg.7f6ffcda8edc4ad90dc1c1eafe26a829.jpegIMG_0470.thumb.jpeg.0bf8dbd2f5e4bb26dd125e9fe4ac15a1.jpeg

Great build, thanks for adding some reference photos, the shop truck was cool.
Now to my question, how is the plastic in this kit ? Somewhere I read that it can neither be filled nor glued ??! 

I use the SMS glue but it is very difficult to get it to stick that’s the one downside other then the seats being rubber but other then that it’s alright

My cousin owned a two door hq coupe with a 327 stroked to 302 chev and it was mad... single dominator not like yours with Hilborn injection. Yours looks good and sits well on the springs. Keep it up Brock

That would have been a beast back then my 1:1 scale hk ute will be getting a injected big block after I start on it
