Yes you are correct. it was a scratch built car as well. I used the Runabout body from the doors forward and a Monogram '30 model A coupe for the turtle deck. It is not perfect but plays the part well. That is why the Speedster Victoria will be a little while before it sees light of day. It will also be scratch built but I haven't figured out how to build it yet. I am a bit weird because I am so into sets of things. I built the Roadster first, then the Phaeton then the Sedan. I couldn't just leave the set unfinished. I want to build one more Speedster Runabout as mine really is no longer up to the standard of the other thee models.
This is one of the most impressive models I have seen in a long time. I especially like the gun compartment. While I was not crazy about the yellow during the WIP I think it looks right on the finished product. Stunning model you have here Harry. I am looking forwardto seeing the next car.
The goal for this model was to make it look box stock when in fact it was basically scratch built from the fenders up. A fun but lengthy project it is the fourth in my set of five Packard 734's. The fifth, a Speedster Victoria is forthcoming.
I took a long vacation from this project...again. I am now into the final assembly stage though I am taking a step back with the body. I just wasn't happy with the appearance of the taped on top. Therefore I'm going to take a chance on painting it onto the finished body. Wish me luck.
