These are at least $75 on eBay. WTF? :o :cry:
I had to step up strong to get mine, not quite that strong but close.

Ian, excellent!

It looks not bad and the shut lines are OK. This is the second time I've heard of Paragon models. Are they new to the model business?

UH 1960 Ford Galaxie Ranch Wagon (Bond Series 'From Russia with Love):
Image[/quote]
Here is what I did with my Russian Lover wagon. So far, it is just stance and wheel/tire combo, but I am thinking on how to get a 1959-1962 custom paint look onto it as well. I must thank whomever is coming up with all these "Bond" vehicles. They are filling a hole for us North American aficendos. Now I am inspired to try to fix the roofline on the Falcon ranchero.

Gee... :shock:

...those two great looking Ford station wagons (1960 and 1964), from the James Bond collection, are getting very hard to find, and are fetching unbelievably high prices! :o

I would really like the Country Squire fake wood look and whitewall tyres and chrome trim wheels on my Galaxie. That would fit nicely with my Trax 62 Falcon Country Squire. Surely it wouldn't be difficult for UH to do some street versions of the more unusual American cars from the Bond series.

Ford Country Squire 1963 from the 007 collection

I am sorry, Splonker, but you lost me. Do you mean that the trim like the '64 is what you would like to see on the 1960?
I agree that it would be great to have country squire versions right from '53 to '73 in full size and Falcons.

Image
Don't forget this '63 country squire. If I remember correctly, it's made by Conquest.

I'll post pictures of my 2 favourite English wagons here as well. Both come from Lansdown.

I sure would like to see an early 50's Austin A40 in a wagon version if anyone has it.

Wagon143: I would like my '60 Galaxie Ranch Wagon kitted out as a Country Squire. Not keen on the later '64 (edited).

The red Bond wagon is a '64. How I wish someone would do a '63.

Wrong Ian I think. Not me I'm just glad someone pointed out that it was a '64 model!

Wow, the wagons make nice rally cars, these more "standard" looking cars doesn't appear any more in the Dakar Rally these days?

I've never liked station wagons. Nevertheless, I have two models.

Image
Dinky. I have this one because this is the car I learned to drive in. Stick shift on the steering column.

Minichamps.

Love estates in 1:1 but not in 1/43. Outside my 'cars I have owned' theme I have 1, unless you count the Ferrari 'Breadvan' !
Cheers,

Bingo, you've chosen well: the '40 Ford from Minichamps in a correct green is one of the best models yet of an American station wagon in 1:43. The various wagons from Brooklin (at twice the price) are very good, but no better than the MC. Worth a mention and a look: Brooklin's ambitiously detailed '40 Buick woody in maroon is due this month (check out Brooklin Models' website under 'This Week's Pictures') ;)
