Lately i've really gotten into building model cars from Australia...because for one I find them quite fascinating, and two, it's not something you'll see here stateside. Let me show you a few examples...

G'day mrk62!!! When it comes to model cars, I am the chromium guru!! MPC made the Mustang II models from 74-78...and they were all fastbacks. I don't know if any of the many resin casters makes one...If you cvan scratch build your own bodystyles by using a piece here and a piece there (like I do sometimes!!) you may start with a fastback kit, and start from there...let me show you an example of what I mean...

Now, neither JoHan or Lindberg made a 64 Plymouth 2-door sedan kit, BUT they made a 64 Dodge 2-door sedan. I siply grafted on a dodge roof to the Plymouth hardtop bodyshell, and used the Dodge interior except the dash...
