At long last after an 18 month wait NEO finally relaunched their 1952 Chevrolet station wagon in maroon after the original black one.   This completes my line up of 1952 Chevrolets.  

1952 Chevrolet wagon #1
1952 Chevrolet wagon #3
1952 Chevrolet wagon #2

And the rest.   All Record models acquired decades ago.

Now if I could just talk NEO into relaunching their 1949 Chrysler that was originally in black but was later pictured in blue but never done.

Apparently so,  if only for reissues in different colors.

John, that's great! I like your approach...that is, every body style is represented for a particular year & make. Nice! That was my goal years ago for every American car produced from 1950-1961.

Chris:   Thanks for your comment.  A quick review of the model shelves seems to indicate I have almost every model body style for the following.   At the risk of being thought of as nuts, here's a sampling.   1959 Plymouth,  1950 Ford,  1950 Chevrolet,  1950 Oldsmobile, 1950 Buick,  1950 Pontiac,  1962 Chevy II,  1960 Falcon, 1954 Buick,  1967 Chevrolet Impala,  1963 Oldsmobile, 1955 Chevrolet,  1956 Ford,  1951 Imperial,  1949 Lincoln,  1956 Chevrolet,  1957 Chevrolet, 1958 Buick,  1940 Dodge,  1956 Plymouth,  1954 Mercury,  1960 Ford.   I'm sure  I've left some off.

I'm not familiar with the Record models but I find it very appealing. I don't know why but I have a soft spot for the 1952 Chevrolet Sedan on your first shelf. One I like is the Record 1952 Pontiac Fastback 4D Sedan. One is on sale at 1153.09 CND on Ebay. I think it's very exaggerated not to say ridiculous 🙄 Thanks for the pics.

Here's the black one. It was issued in 2018, or possibly 2017.

I have a pretty complete range of those Record Pontiacs from 1950-52.  Many were kits or repaints in more correct colors.  The tin woody station wagon is a conversion using (I think) a Kager transkit.   Keep in mind that with Chevrolet the fast back 2 door was only done in 1952,  no four doors that year as I recall.  Probably the same with Pontiac.

Impressive collection. I do a little bit of that, buying multiple body styles for a car’s model year, but nothing as extensive as you. I also do multiple color schemes for a specific model airplane. I am probably just as nuts as you. Happy collecting!

I bought the black '52 Chevy Styleline wagon (that Harv showed) twice in 2021. Each time it arrived severely damaged and I got a refund from 2 different sellers - funny, sort of. I just bought the maroon one that John showed and I agree it is a better look than the black one so, in the end, I'm a winner!

Very nice the 52 Chevy in maroon. Neo seems to be alive inside the Modelcar Group. They are reissuing old castings in different colors and each time to time there is a new casting... 

Here are my two 52 Neo Chevies...
