I always shied away from buying ERTL/BBurago/Maisto since the finish wasnt that good. But in this case , the I stand corrected!!!. Lovely piece.

Here's a 1:25 Scale - 1946 Dodge Power Wagon from ERTL Collectibles.
Amazing truck. Although I personally prefer First Gear for scale models of American Trucks. But the details are impressive all around, but the engine is a little let down I feel. All in all, good buy

The dodge power wagon shows us an example of how scale models should be built. The lines and the metal are so well used. Its simply terrific.

Rudra, I picked it up couple years ago in the US at a local hobby store. Not sure if they make it in 1:18 scale.

I have a couple ERTL models and their quality/finish is way better than Maisto or Bburago

Its a 1:32 scaled model. I got it from Walden, a store here in Hyderabad. I did not see the same model in Life Style/Shoppers Stop at all.

Guys, check this link.

I have no words for the talent, effort and craftsmanship that has gone into its making. This is as real as it gets.

Just call the number on the tow truck, will be there in a jiffy. 'If you can't move it, we will tow it.'

@artofzen: that's a very nice addition.

Continuing vintage, here's something for gas deliveries, a 1:25 Scale - 1939 Studebaker Tanker in chrome red from ERTL Collectibles. Also a coin bank.
