This came resin cast from Glenn Polkington in Australia.....

And this is the finished item, all I needed to find was clear plastic for the front and rear windows. I also added alloy intakes on top of the engine.............

Being a resin kit the wheels had to be painted as in the original Monogram plastic kit they were chromed.

Thanks Spencer, yes candy apple green, Tamiya Acrylic rattle can! Plus Plasti-kote Buttercup Yellow rattle can as well! And of course a great kit, resin yes but good quality, but as all resin castings, shave a bit off here and a bit off there until it all falls into place!

I needed build plans and mentioned it on one of the sites and they have an archive of plans online and sent a set that I just printed out, superb!

Very, very cool! Obviously, a lot of work and craftsmanship was needed to produce such an outstanding replica. The change in color and yellow top is a refreshing break-a-way from the real car’s high-maintenance black vinyl top. And those Michelin “pie crust” slicks – very wild! I also dig the different velocity stacks … they really make the “nail-head” Buick mill come alive. By the way, the “wind-up key” style push bar was first used by legendary drag racer “T.V. Tommy” Ivo … it not only proved to be effective when push starting his slingshot rail, but kept his wheel stands from becoming too extreme.
