Two nice looking models Keko. I have the Packard wagon by both Brooklin and Goldvarg so I won't be adding it. I have the Vette in 1/24 scale so I will add it in 1/43 scale. Thanks for sharing.

Great wagon, Keko.  I have three different versions of this Packard and like all of them!

@bob-jackman You might want to seek out the Matrix Bob - it is far superior to the other two. There were three Astrovettes, one for each Apollo 12 crewmember. Both of these are older issues from a few years back.

When I purchased this Matrix some years ago, I put my BRK model in storage...

However: it has a fault, look at the hubcap...

Thanks Harv. Despite the Packard Twelve wheel cover I will seek out this model. I agree the model is far superior to either the Brooklin or Goldvarg which your pictures clearly show.

@ralf I never noticed that Ralf! Of course my eyes ain't what they used to be. Too bad because the detail on that hubcap is otherwise amazing.

@bob-jackman They reissued the model in metallic green not long ago, so you might find a few of these around.
