I will wait for the green version. I prefer the wire wheels, though.
One thing about this one: too much white inside. The package shelf should be gray, from pics I've seen of the 1:1.

PICS Acme 1/18 1956 Chrysler by Robert M. Woolley #28685.1.3
Thanks for these pics Robert. Looks like there's a "steelie" for a spare. Great! (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #28685.1.3.1
Chris, My 1;1 Imperial has the wire wheel option but the spare by Bob Jackman #28685.1.3.1.1
..right. As far as I know, that is correct. I'm glad to see PM (ACME) replicated that accurately. (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #28685.1.3.1.1.1
" Spectacular " Pictures ... Great Enjoyment on your XCLNT close ups - Thank You (EOM) by Dennis Mong #28685.1.3.2
I will wait for the green version. I prefer the wire wheels, though. by Al Dorado #28685.2
YES! Not only is it wrong but it's too "bright" inside. An easy fix though. (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #28685.2.1
Based on the photos of the prototype and by Robert Lawhn #28685.3
YES, reissue the 1956 Chevies but W/O the skirts! (EOM) by Robert M. Woolley #28685.3.1
The skirts were always "removable." One could easily "snap" them out. (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #28685.3.1.1
I have a PM Bel Air in Laurel Green and Crocus Yellow. No skirts or cont. kit. Super nice model. (EOM) by Al Dorado #28685.3.2
Yes Al, I have a "few" myself. It's a great model...and it's a hardtop...and it's a four door! (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #28685.3.2.1
Yes, a reissue of the 1956 Bel Air Sport Sedan would be just swell! by David Crowe #28685.3.3
...perhaps for the European market. But here in the States let's stick with factory colors...please! (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #28685.3.3.1
There are all sorts of colors that are fine. "Factory" colors by Mike DeTorrice #28685.3.3.1.1
Anyone know how it compares in size beside Maistos '56 Chrysler and Signatures by Ken Spear #28685.4
Good question Ken. I wish I knew. The Maisto is terrible (very underscaled) and Sig's Imperial is... by Christopher Moroni #28685.4.1
I have both this St. Regis and the 55 Imperial. This model is longer than the Imperial by Bob Jackman #28685.4.1.1

Thanks Barry. Assuming the 56 New Yorker and Imperial are the by Bob Jackman #28685.4.1.1.1.1
Right. Bob, Barry.... it makes sense to me as well. (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #28685.4.1.1.1.1.1
Makes me wonder if ACME, using this PM Chrysler tooling, will offer a 1/18 '56 300. It's possible! (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #28685.4.1.1.1.1.1.1
PICs 1/18 Maisto 300 and Acme New Yorker size photos by Robert M. Woolley #28685.4.2
