I have started a 1956 Packard Carribean Hardtop, about 1/20th scale (5/8ths inch to the foot). By 1956, the Studebaker-Packard merger was two years old. My usual strip-and-panel construction. I have tried getting more accurate with my models, many times, but a lack of patience and proficiency in geometry gets in the way. I finally realize that I like my basic method; its consistency, predicatability, simplicity, and its look. I've done so many models this way on the paper modeling forums, that it has become my trademark method. It's the way I build a car. I started with an old magazine advertisement as the reference for my profile drawings and subsequent patterns.
