    Default Classic Metal Works 1974-76 Buick Estate Wagon in N Scale?

    While I was looking for more information on the CMW garbage truck and low boy equipment trailer that Wig-Wag LLC is showing will be released in March (http://wig-wag-trains-cart.com/vehic...age=1&Items=12) announcement on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/classicmetalworksfans/

    For anyone that does not want to follow the link to Facebook, the posting date was November 15, and it states 1974-76 Buick Estate Wagons will be produced in HO with a March release, and N scale versions will follow in the summer of 2020.

    So the big question is, has GM has changed its position on licensing small vehicle models?

    Walthers has the Buicks, along with a new tank trailer (with a 1954 Chevy?) on their website showing they are expected on 5/31/2020. https://www.walthers.com/classic-met...stock/n/page/2
    I am guessing the tractor will be the 1954 Ford rather than a newly tooled Chevy.

    N Scale Supply has some graphics, but the Chevy shown on that website appears to be the HO 1957 Chevy. https://www.nscalesupply.com/Newslet...ewsletter.html

    And Bill Giacci of CMW Holdings Ltd sent an email to the N Scale Vehicle Association Yahoo group stating GM changed their licensing policy in 2017. So, manufacturers now can get a license from GM to produce the smaller models, as long as the model is marketed as an "adult collectible" rather than a child's toy.

    I received an email from Scott at N Scale Supply. Scott contacted CMW and confirmed the tractor with the tank trailer will be the 1954 Ford.

    The N Scale Supply web page has been updated to list the 1954 Ford for both the tank trailer tractor and the garbage truck. https://www.nscalesupply.com/CMW/CMW.html

    Walthers still has these trucks listed as Chevrolets.
