    Didn't know anything about these coming out. Just went on the website for American Excellence and they show them in stock. Manufacturer is MCG. I've never heard of that manufacturer.

    I bought the black one without the roof rack. It goes great with my 1/18 scale Airstream trailer. The car is nicely done, but with no opening features and the chassis is not detailed.

    Great-looking wagon for a collection - and not too badly priced, either. I was thinking of switching to 1/64 scale for further collecting, but it seems those smaller ones are just as expensive overall on average, as the big ones.

    I just want ones in HO scale. Hell, I'll take 'em as 3D-printed! But that wagon with the Silver Twinkie (you're a man with taste) and the angler are very cool. Can you provide a pic of the underside? I just want to see how they've put the bottom together and perhaps see if the undercarriage could be scratchbuilt and/or kitbashed.

    If those were mine, I'd locate another Starliner, such as one someone dropped or was knocked off a shelf and use the parts to install a proper underside. Much as those American Excellence models look great inside and on the body, for the price, they should have a nice underbody also.
