A little back story on this model addition...

A week or so ago, a picture of this model was shown in a thread that featured Brooklin's new '46 Pontiac. I learned that it was for sale on eBay and made that purchase right away. This model looked so impressive-I had to have it. The original model is one of my favorite Brooklin models. It is just incredible as it was originally issued, and this modification takes it to another level. 

The model was crafted by John Roberts and his artistry is amazing. Now when I saw the photos on eBay, I knew this model would be a perfect companion to the '46 Pontiac Torpedo Eight that was just issued by Brooklin in the NB Center Collection. Of course, you be the judge-what do you think?

Of course, the '41 will be featured in its own photoshoot coming up as soon as I finish the photos.

They look great together John.  I think one having more contrasting/flashy wheels, deleted skirts and whitewalls actually looks better than if they were both the same.

A great comparison of two beautiful cars, John. Looking forward to seeing your pictures of the ‘46 Torpedo. Interesting name for a post war car.

  1. Great looking Pontiacs, both '41 and '46. Very attractive Silver Streak styling on both of them and it is quite clear John Robert's work is exceptional !

A fantastic set that look like they were born together!

You can see that Pontiac used most of the tooling from the '41's to produce the '46's after the war.
