    Outside of the hood issue, it looks like a pretty decent casting of the Suburban.

      Is that a post in the back like the Matchbox cars?

            That's a first.
            Due to the recent budget cuts,
            the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil, plus the
            current state of the economy, the light at the end
            of the tunnel has been turned off.

              Well, "I can" allow it, in a one-euro model, but in one that costs me vastly more since here, the only way to acquire it through the web, then no.

                looks good- maybe not perfect and the post isn't ideal... but i'll get a few and suspend my disbelief.

                    What does this post do for a diecast? Maybe keep the roof from falling?

                      It holds the body, glass, interior, to the base at the rear. With vehicles like this, sometimes the makers use a notch or cutout area on the rear panel to slip in a tab instead of having to rivet it together. That is a much better than a rivet 'pole" showing inside the back of the vehicle.

                        Oh for the love of socks... makes me almost want to cancel my order.

                        I’m paying for authentic 1/64 scale premium diecast here, not a dollar car. Sheesh.

                          They could have done something like with pullback cars where they cover the post with molded in luggage in the interior.

                            AW could have done this differently, for instance like M2 uses a tab in the rear bumper area. However, remember, the image you see on most screens is over 3 times actual size. As it is sitting here in front of me, I can hardly see it. Painting it black would help. There was also a comment on the grill. It does have a nice "texture". Maybe a black wash would help.
