Toyota Corona
Posted by aussiemuscle308 on Saturday, October 30, 2010 11:33 PM

1984 Toyota Corona Wagon, as owned by my father before me. Finding a model of this rather boring buzzbox (compared to all other versions of the corona) wasn't easy, until i found the Aoshima Corona HT 2000 sedan. I cut off the roof and rear and built it up with styrene sheet.

Hi Kevin,

Looks pretty "cool". That's a really good job of scratchbuilding. By the way, would you happen to have the name & number of the "chick" (almost) in the Blue dress? Smile,Wink, & Grin Whistling

 Hi Kevin.

Now that's not true. I commented on the wagon first and then on the girl. I commented on the car 'cuz it's a real nice model and I like nice models. I commented on the girl 'cuz I know I like girls, I just can't remember why!! It really doesn't matter, 'cuz my wife wouldn't let me keep her anyway. Confused

Thanks barry, nice recovery. the chick in the blue dress is my least favourite. her dress is 'filled in', so it looks like a 'skort' (skirt/short). i've now put the number plates on the model and my mother was most impressed with the wagon. someone offered some 4 lug 14" steelies, so hopefully that'll make it even more accurate.

G'day Aussiemuscle308, good job on the old grocery getter Corona.  I'd appreciate if you would please let me know where you obtained the accurate NSW number plates.  Is there a local Oz supplier?  thanks for your help.

The license plate was taken from the photo of the actual car. I cropped the photo and printed it from ms word( it let's you set the exact size).

Thanks aussie, I'll give it a go. I had a look on partsbox, you do nice work, and it's good to see traditional Australian cars like the FC and Monaros. Regards

Well, 8 years later i've finally updated this thread. With my new 3D printer, i made some more correct looking steelie rims for my Dad's Toyota Corona. They were designed in Fusion 360 and printed on my Flashforge printer. The first few tests had very weak centers, so i had to redesign it a few times.

Thanx for the update, aussie, she looks pretty accurate to me.  It's good to see you getting so involved with the 3D printing, I'm interested in how the process is evolving.  Cheers.
