Caribbean in white/blue and brown, just got the flyer an hour ago. Loks good. They say that they spent $250,000 to make this model, completely new tooling etc. I think I am gonna get me one.

I got mine two weeks ago. It is a beautiful and very well detailed model. The reversible seat cushions are a bit of a pain to get positioned just right, it just takes some patience. Even has the flip up a/c vents molded into the top of the dash.

Now if they would do a 1958 Buick Limited

That'd be easy - just dip the whole thing in chrome.

Just to make sure it is accurate. turn it upside down, does the Ultramatic leak? Ordered mine tonight.

A Chinese Packard. That's really neat. I can hardly wait to help them.

I've still got to spend money on real South Bend parts. A moving Studebaker collects no dust.:)

Just the Clipper had tail lights like the '57 & '58 Packards. The senior Packards had the same tail lights as on the '55s.

I stand corrected! [B)] You're exactly right. My Grandpa had a '55 400. I obviously have limited Packard knowledge! Thanks!
