Brooklin 1949 Buick Sedanette
Here is another older Brooklin. There are many things not quite right with this model such as very wide front fenders and very small front windshield as well as lack of detail.
I am posting photos of the original and my updated version in Cumulus Grey. Thanks for looking.
They are very charming and substantial models. 👀
Well done. I really like you choice of color.
Love the enhancements. One of my early Brooklins and while it's not perfect it's still a favorite. I also have a cream colored white metal version which is highly detailed but I can't remember the maker...Motor City?
You did a lot of work on that one - glad you have the original next to it, so it's a bit more obvious all the enhancements you did!
What about this one ....
....Also this one.
I owned ALL the Buicks of the period in all scales. The best have been the Motor City I sold about 15 years ago for real big money because I was going out of the 1/43 scale at the time. These are TSME and very close to MC if not even better as resin models.
And then there are these from my Buick shelf, conversions of Motor Max diecasts.

@john-quilter Nice work as always John. I especially like the stately four door sedan.
@bob-jackman I also really love them because I owned a 1:1 concours 1949 Riviera for many years. On these TSME models the tires were a little too skinny so I replaced them from distressed Stamp 1941 Cadillacs I have.
