All that aside, it's great to see that someone is making these Aussie icons. Even if it is in 1:24. Good on 'em
Now to the picky bit. The roofline shouldn't round off like that. It should be bold and boxy.
But that's the only whinge I've got.

I like the old holdens as well but why go to so much trouble makin a 1:1 EH 2 door ? I would just look for a 64 Chevy coupe myself

Unfortunately Holden in their wisdom didnt think us Aussies needed coupes until 1968 , Ford gave us a coupe XM falcon in 1965 from memory or XP model in 64 ? cant recall the exact years - do a google search you will find them .
Some well healed ( cashed up ) Aussies could have enjoyed "imported" two door cars and even rag top ( soft top roof ) cars in the 1920s , 30s , 40s , 50s and 60s from various manufacturers but in general most of our Dads or grand dads would have bought locally produced Holdens , Fords and Valiants with very short options lists to choose from , but the local aussie cars did all have 4 air conditioners in them ......they rolled down the windows
ps if your keen to have one of these bodies you could try contacting Thunderbirds raceway via the auslot home page ( T Birds sell MJK kits ) or google MJK engineering in South Australia , Keith may make extra bodies ? I dont think it was intended as a production thing just something Keith felt like doing for fun as far as I know
