My copy arrived yesterday, some interesting articles and for Me the 'Building of SAR Dressed Stone Stations' appears to be vary adaptable for VR Blue Stone.
The fun of modelling always adapting from someones good work and ideas.
In AMRM news there is some good news for Eureka now that a lot of their recovered tooling is back in safe keeping allowing some models promised years ago to see the light of day.

Picked up my copy today; the local newsagent at Wynyard station now stocks it.

Found it interesting (or disappointing) that no Auscision updates were in the news section; guessing there's no news to tell at this stage.

There was an update on the AMRM facebook page about two weeks ago - news arrived too late for the magazine:

In the photo on page 59, accompanying a letter, one of the model Holden sedans is misidentified.

The red and white car, identified as a model EK, is in fact an FB, the immediately preceding model of Holden sedan.

On the EK, the chrome strip, which on the FB edged the side two tone panel, ran the full length at waist level. On the EK, only the roof colour could differ from the main body colour. The main difference between the EK and the FB was that the EK offered the three speed automatic "Powerglide" transmission. The grille was slightly different, and that on the model is correct for the FB.

It is worth noting the decline of two tone paint options at this time. The model FC sedan illustrated represents a 1959 production car. A car with those colours in in 1958 would have had the roof and boot painted white, along with the side panels.

Sorry to have to correct you Peter but the powerglide is a 2 speed auto . The 3 speed is a trimatic .

And also rather unfortunately the EK was released with the Hydramatic Transmission, which was a 3 Speed.  Powerglides were released with the HD in 1965 and were used up to and including the HT in 1969/1970.

Peter is right, the EK was Holden's first automatic.

Interestingly, the model pictured is described as an 1961 EK on the Australian Modeller and Road Rager websites. The 1960 FB doesn't seem to have any chrome strip at all.

But if you Google the models, Peter is right.
