These are 1/43 scale resin. They are all priced at about $100. They are very nice.

Beautiful Packards. I have the NEO wagon in the same color and Automodello Packard in creme instead of the red. They are incredible!!!

Very nice collection. They sit so well together, despite being all from different manufacturers.

Thanks Guys. I knew there were some Packard fans here.

 

@Charlie. It's funny you ask, because I go to it every year, and I knew it was coming up, so I checked the date, and I was a day late.

I will make it next year, with a model in hand. I am building an AMT '70 Baldwin Motion Camaro for the contest. I have the model, and just got the photo-etching detail set today.

 

Oh, BTW. I was born in Marlborough. Do you still live there?

I do live in Marlborough, Ben. I actually lived down your way for about 3-1/4 years (New Bedford) before moving back home.

 

Did you go to MHS? Class of '93 here.

 

If you're free tonight- or any third Wednesday, MassCar meets in Canton now at the Porter & Chester Institute on Campanelli Dr., next to the auto shop. That's located right off of 139 in Stoughton. if coming up from Brockton on Rt. 27 or Turnpike St., turn left at the goofy intersection at Cumberland Farms and the townhouse-style office building is (Turnpike St.) https://maps.google.... 02021&t=m&z=16

 

Meetings start about 7:00.

@Charlie.

I only spent a few years in Marlborough. Mom moved us to Waltham, and finished up highschool in 1985, and promptly went in the Marine Corps. Then after 4 years in the Marines, I moved to Brockton, and pretty much been here since.

I would L-O-V-E to join you guys on your Wednesday meetings, but I work on Wednesday nights 2nd shift, and I know exactly where that is, thanks for the info. Maybe I can switch nights with somebody and join you guys.

 I am a AAA roadside tech. My job title is actually called "On the Go" tech. I am the guy they call if there is any chance of getting the car started to avoid a tow. I was about 20 years as a dealership tech, so as much as I enjoyed that, I like my job now so much more. My days off are Thursdays, so I go to the big car cruise every Thursday night at the Raynham dog track, and at Patriots place in Foxboro. I'll PM you if I can make it sometime. 

Thanks Charlie.

I will be posting pics of the new Danbury Mint '35 Ford, so watch for that thread.

Teaser pics.................

I Think The Packards are one of the most Beautiful cars of the Time...

 

Wish Tamiya would produce some of those Subjects...Since the kits are good for detail...Just a Thought...

 

Thanks for the Wonderful pic's.... Really like the '38

Except, they are NOT all Packards!  The Josef Stalin Limousine is a ZIL, which was a Soviet-era, rather loose copy of a 1939-41 Packard 180 Limousine.  By loose copy I mean that while most all of the styling was copied, that's pretty much where it all ended.

 

Oh, I know about the supposed shipping of Packard 180 dies to the Soviet Union during WW-II, but Packard historians have very much debunked that rumor--in fact, the ZIL is considerably different from a Packard 180 in most of its dimensions, absolulely no body panels are even clise to interchangeable as well.

 

Oh well!

Correct.
Good catch Art. I was waiting to see if anyone else knew the facts. I love the mystery that surrounds this car.

For modelers, the sedan and roadster are available in scale model kits, the sedan in a couple of scales and the roadster in 1:16.
