Description


Thank you for all your kind comments about my previous models. This one will be available soon in my store on RR as Poser and Daz studio model. The rad cap mascot has been created by my friend Gaius. Thank you my friend! The Packard Eight was a luxury automobile produced by Packard between 1924 and 1936, and was an all new platform that took the top market position from the earlier Packard Twin Six which was first introduced in 1916. When it was introduced, it was designated as the Senior Packard until the company ended in the late 1950s. Packard's first eight cylinder engine was introduced as the Single Eight with two wheelbases offered in 136 in (3,500 mm) and 143 in (3,600 mm), while sharing a naming convention with the junior Single Six. Starting in 1928, new naming conventions were offered as four models, the Standard Eight, Custom Eight, De Luxe Eight, and Speedster it was powered by a low-compression aluminum-head L-head inline eight producing 90 bhp (67 kW)[8] (hence the name). Packard ads bragged the engine "floated" on new rubber mounts. Power would be upgraded to 110 hp (82 kW) in 1932 and 120 hp (89 kW) in 1933. The Eight offered optional (no extra cost) four-speed synchromesh transmission. Like other Packards of this era, it featured Ride Control, a system of dash-adjustable hydraulic shock absorbers. The Eight also featured automatic chassis lubrication and "shatterproof" glass. The Eight was available on several wheelbases. It was advertised as a two-door roadster, two-door convertible & two-door convertible Victoria (both new for 1932), phaeton, four-door dual-cowl phaeton & Sport Phaeton (a four-door four-seat dual-cowl phaeton new in 1932) two-door coupé, four-door sedan, landau, town car, and limousine. The Packard eight utilized a very rare swivel accelerator pedal, patented by Pat Au back in the early 1900s. Production of the De Luxe Eight was less than ten per day. It was available in eleven body styles. In 1930, the Eight was factory priced between US$2425 ($37,568 in 2020 dollars ) and US$2885 for the Standard Eight, US$3190 to US$3885 for the Custom Eight, and US$4585 to US$5350 ($82,882 in 2020 dollars). The Packard Speedster Eight Model 734 was a performance-oriented passenger car line by the Packard Motor Car Company offered for the 1930 model year (7th series) only. Based on a heavily modified Standard Eight (733) chassis, it got narrower and lower coachwork. The 734 straight eight engine is derived from the 740 Custom Eight's. It differs in valve and manifold revisions, a Detroit Lubricator dual updraft carburetor, a vacuum booster pump and a ribbed exhaust manifold. The engine delivers 145 HP (740: 106 HP) @3400 RPM without increase in bore or stroke, which remain at 3½ x 5 in. Retail prices started at USD$5,200 ($80,559 in 2020 dollars) for the Boattail Speedster, Runabout Speedster and Phaeton Speedster, while the Victoria Speedster and Sedan Speedster went for USD$6,000 ($92,952 in 2020 dollars). Speedster Eights have four instead of three speeds, and the customer could choose from several rear end ratios at no extra cost. 734 models have their parking lights mounted on the fenders, not on the body like Standard Eights. They also feature senior car's hoods with for ventilation door. Only 113 cars were built. Available 734 Speedster Eight models include: Body style #422 Boattail Roadster, Body style #443 Sedan Body style, #445 Phaeton Body style, #447 Victoria Body style, #452 Runabout.

Terrific work! Looks really nice!

Funny to know, that Packard a few years later in WWII, build the Rolls Royce Merlin (or in that case the Packard Merlin) in License to equip the "North American P-51 Mustang" with it (replacing the in higher altitude less powerful Alison Engine. 😆

C'est un modèle tout simplement magnifique et l'on aimerait par un quelconque tour de magie, être projeté dans les années 30 pour prendre le volant de ce bijou ; en attendant, je suis certain que nombreux sont ceux qui vont se précipiter pour acquérir cette belle auto...en 3D ! Et ne me remercie pas pour le bouchon, j'ai été très heureux de participer à un détail.

Meticulous renders, beautiful sheen on the cars, and exquisite clarity. Also, you use fine angles, to show off as many of the cars' features as you can. And your hues are vivid, saturated and bright. (Brilliant whites.) Beautiful work on these!

Une déclinaison éblouissante de cette Packard racée et élégante. Je ne trouve pas l'adjectif pour évoquer le niveau himalayen de la qualité de la modélisation. Génial, certainement !
