It's been pointed out there should be a space/sheet metal between taillights and bumper. That aside I like it a lot. It's the first true 1/64 roundback we have. Any chance of comparison shots with the AW Country Squire and '69 Chevy wagon? Is the Buick a shade shorter than the '76 Caddy?

So the Buick Estate Wagon has arrived! Now if only a store in my area carried Auto World. The local WalMarts seem to have given up on them.

I can't remember at the moment which tote my Country Squires are in, but I did some shots with the Coupe DeVille and the Kingswood. The Buick appears to be really close in length bumper to bumper to the Coupe DeVille and a tad longer than the Kingswood.

Thanks for the comparison pics Ryan. That sounds about right since the '76 Deville was 230" long with a 130" wheelbase. Buick roundy for '74 was 231" long on a 127" wheelbase. I think once shrunken to scale there isn't a lot of difference. Let's review the GM 70s slate from AW: They have a luxury 2 door coupe. They have a full size clamshell wagon. Now they need a Impala sedan from '74/'75 to complete the full size GMs.

In addition, I wouldn't mind seeing a '75 Pontiac Grand Ville convertible to round out this series.

The difference in size between the Buick and the Chevy makes sense, since the Kingswood Estate was built on the G.M. "B"-Body while the Buick and Cadillac were on the larger "C"-Body.
