Premium X 1950 Nash Ambassador

Premium X 1950 Nash Ambassador

Nash’s Airflytes were the most aerodynamic American cars when they were introduced in 1949, and boasted some of the first fully unitized bodies. All that technology was lost on the teenagers of the day, however; the car’s seats folded flat to make a large, comfortable bed. Do the math. Here’s more math: Premium X’s  take on the large Nash Ambassador for 1950 calls that name out on its box and baseplate, and the resin model’s dimensions are right on the money for the bigger bathtub – but the in-scale, legible fender scripts badge it as a shorter “Statesman.” That gaffe aside, everything about this model is exactly as it should be. The excellent two-tone paint has crisp separation lines, with perfectly fitted photo-etched beltline moldings, and every piece of trim is done, to scale, with either plated or photo-etched pieces. A favorite exterior detail is the colorful, 3D hood emblem, and the interior trim is done to the same level, with a unique “Uniscope” instrument pod (with detailed gauges) perched on the steering column. There are  relief-cast, silver-painted interior handles, as well as small cranks for the vent window.  The model’s shape matches photos from all angles, and all dimensions are exactly 1:43 scale. Thanks to Wild About Wheels for providing this sample. — Wayne Moyer
