Well my friends,I got ripped off by the Chinese!.I had an agreement with MKO miniatures the Manufacturer of my 1956 Dodge Wagon model that I would be exclusive in selling these models  as per the owner of the real cars request.We worked very well together until MKO made an error on the models which I caught and after paying 600.00 shipping.Too expensive to send them back get repaired and resend.MKO never sent any pictures for my approval before going into production.Instead of an apology and making things right they corrected the remaining models I had coming and shipped them leaving me with almost 1/3 of my order as error cars.They refused to send me the parts and instead wanted to sell my models to other dealers.I was advised in the past couple of days that TRAX/URTI was selling my exact three models in a different package.I contacted TRAX/URTI and they said I would have to talk with MKO miniatures about it.Be careful who you trust!

I have the limited edition tri-colored one with spoked wheels. It sits next to my Neo 1956 300B.

@ben-lampson The two tone Green and the three tone had rear fender fins added.They never contacted me after casting the fins and went in to production ,making them curved at the top instead of straight.

Greg, very sorry to hear of this. Please keep us updated on developments. I have had issues as a consumer with Trax/URTI.
