From My Collection... Monday 3/06/23 - Post 1
I have been away for a few weeks, suffered with a few issues. A hospital visit (which followed some recuperation at home), nasty weather (which resulted in no power), then no internet (long, long story there) All of these things has given me some time to go over my extensive catalog of unposted photos.
With that, I plan on posting a few of them today. Thank-you for looking.
As I discovered Brooklin Models a few years ago, one group of models that really caught my eye was their extensive selection of Buicks. I had been collecting model cars in one scale or another for many years, and while the Buick marque had some representation in different scales, nothing compared to what Brooklin offered. I made my list of wants, and then started hunting them down. I am pleased to say that I think I've done a decent job of adding all the Buick models I wanted, and I can also say, I am thrilled with each and every one of them.
The 1st model I would like to feature is this wonderful wood-bodied estate wagon. Brooklin 1st issued this model in 2013, it was presented in what Brooklin labeled Royal Maroon and featured an amazing crafting of the wood panels & trim. As it turned out, a transfer of this model to the BML range brought a truer example of Royal Maroon, which has led me to label the 1st example as Dark Red. Before the change in red and the BML version, they followed the 1st release in another color. It was issued in 2015 and was offered in Lassen Green.
It is the example in Lassen Green I wish to feature in this photoset.

as a bonus to this wonderful model, I recently was able to acquire a very nice example of a 1940 Buick Touring Sedan released by Victory Models. They make a great pair.

Nice models, ones I do not have. I have 11 Buick 1/43 scale models, which is the largest number of a single marque in my collection. I look forward to seeing some of your other Buicks.

Nice paring, John. It's good to have you back!
The Victory touring sedan is particularly handsome. Here's the 1941 version by Enchantment Land, Jerry Rettig, along with a Western Models.

That is hysterical, John. And small world—Nurse Ratched was played by Louise Fletcher (1933-2022) whose brother, John Fletcher, was one of my professors at Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria, Virginia back in the late 1960’s.
