I am looking to add a Lincoln Coupe of that period to my collection. It seems NEO did a nice detailed resin model of a 1937 Coupe. I would appreciate opinions of members already having one. 

The next option is the metal Brooklin 1940 Coupe that looks OK in the NBC Edition and I ordered one not being sure if I made a good decision.

In my search of info, I found a post of Harv posting pictures  here of several Lincoln Coupes of his collection. I would appreciate if he could step in and give an opinion about which one is the most detailed and accurate.

The Neo Zephyr is no doubt very nice, but it it doesn't hold a candle to the Brooklin NB Center model.

I have both, so I can make that assessment, but of course, it is only my opinion.

When I buy models, I buy the best ones available, but if you looking to save money, there are cheaper ones available.

You get what you pay for.

I am very picky with the models I purchase, and this NB Center Zephyr knocked my socks off!

I think the Neo is quite well done. Here are pics again for anyone missing my original post.

I have the non-NBC Brooklin 1940 Zephyr. If I did not already have it, I would have bought it at Allentown. The added details are nice but it wasn't enough to push me into an upgrade. Ben's pics above show how nice it is.

Ben, I saw the NB Center Lincoln last month at the model show in Countryside Illinois. I agree with your assessment, it is a very nice model. I also agree with you about buying the best available.

From the pictures posted here of the NBC, the rear tail lights are slanted while they should be horizontal. This is what I find from reference books of what should be accurate and a picture from the Brooklin site shows the correct position of the tail lights on the 1:1. I just hope the one I will receive will be better assembled. I also hope I will not receive my model with a crooked rear bumper.

The NEO model overall looks very sharp but I believe the grille is too wide. I had the 1/18 Ertl  P100 model many years ago and this was the one to have.

For reference here are some 1:1 pics.

The taillights seem to be canted on each side and are mounted on a curved surface; they are not horizontal. I'd say the Brooklin is accurate with regard to placement.
