This model had even more effect in history, becauce it was taken as a nearest pattern for the Soviet VIP limousine '1959 GAZ 13 Chaika in fact (pleace compare):

The british Top Gear TV-carshow has told about it, and certainly, with its traditional humour sence (available at YOUTUBE, foк example there: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4GtDyZVg56k).

Yes, the Packard and Chaika are very similar, except for the differences in the rear fenders. The GAZ 13 appears to have used the rear fender style of the 1955 Lincoln.

Today I built a new center body section with curves, instead of angles. I can't upload photos from the computer I'm currently using, but earlier today I posted the pictures on this link: Cardboard 1956 Packard Caribbean Hardtop.

Started the interior tub. An interior panel is shown glued to the floorpan, then there are the patterns for the colored paper pieces that will cover the panel. These are followed by progressive pictures of the panel's decoration, followed by the dry-test fit of the completed panel into the tub.

Looks great, Mark. Are the interior colors and panel shapes your own design, or authentic to the car? If your own design, you have really captured the '50s look.

Authentic to the car, from photos from the web of the '56 Caribbean convertible interior. I'm hoping that the color scheme is the same for the hardtop. Convertible interior photos are all I've found, so far.

Instead of using the corrugated slabs (above posts)for seat cushions, I made the cushions and seat backs as strip-and-panel boxes. If I had used the corrugated pieces, I would have had to paper the fluted edges, and I still would have had to clad them with cardboard strips and panels.


The front seat is done, and is dry test-fitted into the interior.

It seems to take as long to do an interior as it does to do an entire exterior.
