...back on for the umpteenth time, and did a "beauty shot" of it--one of my all-time favorite, nearly box-stock builds: Monogram's 1930 Packard Speedster Phaeton, built in 1979.

I loved these classic kits- I must have built three or four of the boattail version, but none of them turned out like this!

IMHO, we don't see enough of these classics anymore.
Sharp and clean, looks great!

Nice Packard, Art. You didn't run across one of those '48-'53 Chevy Panels or Suburbans that you use to cast, when you were digging, did you? I missed getting one when you were in the business. Do you know where I might get one? Do the molds still exist?

Thanks,
