Absolutely love it!  Can a 4 door sedan be far behind?

 

Jeff, what year is your 1:1 stawag?  Pictures?

mines a 63, the primered glass parts you see will be cast in clear resin. this will probably be a complete kit, chassis ans all

Wagons are sexy, including this one. Should be another winner from Motor City.  :)
