1940 Packard Darrin Super 8 Victoria by Western Models (WMS31).

I have collected a significant number of Western Models over the years. It is nice to see them continued in the Brooklin fold.

This one I rather like in deep red with a white top up. It is white metal and about 35 years old at this point.

Nice model and a nice background. That makes a great set of pictures.

Fine pictures, Prof. Green.  I agree with you on these Western models, with one small exception-  I like that Packard open.

But I really appreciate Western giving us the optional top, just in case of rain.

It looks great top down David. I have a top down version from Minimarque 43 which I need to photograph.

I always liked the Packard Victoria of the 30s - 40s. I have the 2 Victorias (1934 - 1937) Automodello did and they are wonderful models. This was a great time for coachbuilders.

Bowman and Schwartz also did the phenomenal 1940 Cadillac Victoria that of course pairs very well with these Packards. This is an early GLM model.
