I was pledged to secrecy a few weeks ago but now the list has been published in The Brooklin Collector.

BML-11 Lincoln Zephyr
BML-14 Chrysler T&C
BRK. 208a '67 Wildcat
BRK. 219 '54 Cadillac 
BRK. 225 '51 Hudson
BRK. 230 Nash Healey
 
If you, like me, already bought some of these, read 'em and weep. If you collect every variation, here's more for you to add. Eventually all the NB collection cars that Brooklin has modeled will be upgraded, said upgrades including improved interior and exterior details, badging, window surrounds, mirrors, antennae, and (as applicable) spotlights.

@michel-lemieux I don't think so, but John Kuvakas might want to verify that.

@michel-lemieux, membership in either of the clubs is not necessary for purchasing the new NB Center line of models. But, there will be examples of the initial production batch that will be numbered and available at our event in Allentown on Nov 19 & 20. That's where the new line will be unveiled.

NB Center line of models?

Does these BRK models will be sell by sellers that we know after the event? I suppose that they are in limited?

@michel-lemieux, Brooklin is introducing a new line of models, "The NB Center Collection". It will be highly detailed miniatures of the 1:1 cars in the NB Collection. The models will be introduced in Allentown on Nov 20. No one will have them in stock until after that date. The first production run will be limited editions, numbered and available in Allentown to those who attend the event. Afterward, they will be available to the general public. Numbers will be limited. You can contact your favorite dealer to see if he will be stocking them. But, it is still very early in the process. I'm betting some dealers are not aware of the new line. The models are not yet completed and won't be until just before their introduction. 

Anyone can attend the event. Preregistration entry is $10 for club members, $20 for non-club members. You can preregister by emailing Wood Foss at dwf1@cox.net. Wood accepts PayPal but takes checks as well. The club model will be available around the time of the show. For those who attend, we'll hand them out there. For those who are not attending, they will be sent to you. The club model, the '56 Century convertible, is not one of the NB Center Collection models.

On Brooklin's site is an upcoming '65 Impala Convertible with an impressive upgraded level of detail.  These look like the type of details you are describing.  Will the NB line have similar pricing to this new Impala?

@mark-lampariello, those Impalas we a very limited run of models with the top up or down feature. Pricing on the new line of NB models has not yet been determined.

Harv, as one who has bought all of these cars already I feel like a real sap but the man with the money can do as he pleases. My future purchases of Brooklins will definitely be more selective and with greater caution.

It's going to be the third different color for at least the Chrysler, Cadillac and Buick. I bought the black Cadillac thinking it would never be offered in another color scheme. Have known maybe I would have waited? Ideally, the BRK models could be offered in different colors at the same time like MCUSA did and even some Conquest.

I look forward and I am counting the time that rest to see the six models of the new line the NB Center collection who will be released in about one month. I am wonder if the six models will be showed and available in same times  and if the models will be the same color as the BRK standard models or of the colors of the cars presented at the event in Pennsylvania? Other thing that i wonder what will be the price of these models? I will see in 30 days and one hour approximetely.

I believe these will be in the colors of the standard models with extra details. Prices not announced yet but a premium will be added for the extra work involved. They will be available in the range after the event

It’s hard to imagine how any more detail could be added to the ‘54 Cadillac. It’s as highly detailed as possible now!  But additional colors, yes please! If they build I will buy.

How about one in this color scheme?
