New Tooling from Classic Metal Works

The transition era modelers are not only getting three new buses, but it looks like a couple of all new automobiles are also in the works.  Here is what I found on Walthers new products page for October:

50317 - 1953 Ford Country Squire Wagon - Carnival
50318 - 1953 Ford Country Squire Wagon - Fern Mist Green
50319 - 1953 Ford Country Squire Wagon - Woodsmoke Gray 
50320 - 1953 Ford Country Squire Wagon - Raven Black
50321 - 1956 Dodge Royal 4-Door - Two-Tone Coral/Gray
50322 - 1956 Dodge Royal 4-Door - Two-Tone Aqua/White
50323 - 1956 Dodge Coronet 4-Door - Black
50324 - 1956 Dodge Coronet 4-Door - Taxi

Here is the link to Walthers if you want to check them out yourself:

I also checked out Classic Metal Works to see if they had any information listed, and I could not find anything for the 1953 Ford wagon or the 1956 Dodge.  They do show a CAD drawing for the 1950 Dodge Meadowbrook that was announced awhile back.

The Meadowbrook has already been released. I don;t think they update their website that often. All of those cars will be most welcome. The first of the tanker trucks should be here soon too.

Sorry! Surf''s not UP. The 1953 Ford Squire wagon introduced the use of Dinock  simulated wood panneling replacing real wood. Oh well. I wish they were doing the 1956 wagon as thats what we had as a 2nd family car when i was a kid. Other car was a plain Jane black two door 1949 Chev.                                                                                                                                                   Nate Goodman (Nato).

I saw that too. Have no idea but this could be most interesting! Unfortunately, it's HO. The Blatz Beer truck will be cool.

56 Dodge Coronet


Nice Northern Pacific color scheme... sorta.

"Hmm... too much chrome...!



Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.

GM swallowing up Chrysler would be the Penn Central of the auto-industry. 2 Money losers merging doesn't create a moneymaker.

But maybe GM might reconsider their size rule on toys/models.

Like most
shotgun weddings ongoing happiness is seldom guaranteed.  Chrysler is owned by an investment group and they really want to cut and run.  GM is likely to become an unwilling partner rather than a white knight. 
As a GM (Saturn) and Chrysler owner I'm hoping for the best, but in car shopping this year I was appalled at the build quality and repair records/forecast for Chrysler.  I really liked my plastic-fantastic 'K' car back when and TiVoPrincess may never let go of her LeBaron but the current Chryslers looked cheap and as if they were purposely designed that way...
