It’s hard to overstate the influence of Raymond Dietrich. He’s the creative mind behind iconic designs spanning genres and generations, and is responsible for establishing the design language that defined entire brands. After co-founding LeBaron and doing design work for Lincoln, Studebaker, Franklin, Erskine, and Checker Cab, he became the first head of design at Chrysler. Decades after his retirement from the auto business, he was hired by Gibson Guitars in the 1960s to design what would become one of the most iconic and recognizable instruments of all time—the Gibson Firebird. But for many, his custom Packards will remain his signature works, and the 1934 Convertible Twelve Victoria is perhaps the most coveted and respected.

The Twelve was Packard’s flagship—the car positioned to take on the best from Cadillac and Lincoln throughout the depths of the Great Depression. It was named for its engine, which was ideal to power Packard’s top model. It was initially called the Twin Six in honor of the flagship Packard from a decade earlier, but was rebadged the Twelve to confer the image of power and prestige. Dietrich’s design elements take that to the next level—particularly the 1934 model, whose V-shaped grille and long cowl that flows all the way back to the windscreen offer unsurpassed elegance for four very lucky passengers.

Automodello honors Dietrich’s masterpiece with this exacting 1:43 replica of his exquisite take on the Packard Twelve Convertible Victoria. It is offered in three versions, each with a removable top and tonneau cover for top-up or top-down display. The standard edition comes in red with a tan top and interior and will be limited to 299 pieces. The Tribute Edition is triple blue, released to celebrate the Packard Automobile Classics 50th Annual Meet, and limited to 150 hand-numbered examples. The super-rare Homage Edition is black with a black top and tan interior, and limited to just 24 hand-numbered pieces. Congratulations on joining a very exclusive group of Packard enthusiast collectors!

The best die-cast model in my collection February 18, 2016
Reviewer: Francis Pivar  
This has to be the most exquisite model I have ever seen.  The fine details are amazing.  I was a little disappointed to learn that it was made in China but they are certainly improving over what they have done in the past.  No Franklin Mint or Danbury Mint model has yet to achieve this level of realism even in 1/24 scale.  No need for an opening hood and doors - this is a model to be admired, not played with.  I'm very pleased with this purchase.
