1922 Packard in 1/87

Built from the Jordan injected molded kit (not for the faint of heart). I liked the running gear of the Packard so much I just can't cover it with a bed. It will probably end up a load on a more modern truck/trailer. Not very well seen is my attempt at the Packard Single Six. It is painted with Floquil RR tie brown with a thick wash of alcohol and India ink followed by a few different rust colored acrylic washes with clear flat lacquer coats between washes.

Very nice! I wasn't aware of this kit.

Beautiful assembly & finishes!  I "know" all of those tiny little HO bits are really delicate, but your finishes make it look like a big ole heavy truck.  Nice!  -- Dallas

1:87, huh? Adequate. -- Russ

Hey, that is cool. I would not have guessed it was 1/87.....looks 1/48. Nicely done!

Chester, congratulations on this new kit. You ARE an inspiration to many of us, even living thousands of kilometers away!!
