Scale
Hello again John, you hit it right on the head everything you write is true. With the original Highway Travelers my son and I drove to Fleetwood Pa. to measure Dr. Paul Sable's Hudson Italia. He was cooperative me and my son,Tom, and we spent 5 to 6 hours measuring and taking more than 100 pictures of his beautiful Italia. We also traveled to Baltimore Md. to measure the Fraser and the owner, Joseph, I seem to have forgotten his last name. Again we spent many hours there. Unfortunately he passed away before we finished the model. I did send one to his widow and she sent a beautiful and gracious letter thanking us for the model. Can you imagine thanking us when we owed so much to her husband for his generosity of letting us use his Fraser. By the way it was the #3 car with overdrive off the assembly line.

Regards, Paul

What does wheel base have to do with scale if body measurements aren't correct? (EOM) by Bob Kleven #25325.3.2.2
