That Santa Rosa Coral with cream around the windows is both gorgeous and correctly done. John White did some beautiful enhancements. Thanks for posting this one

white metal done the way Brooklin is doing it today (and Motor City et al in the past) will always be my choice over resin

Nice display Tim and welcome! 

I also buy both resin and white metal, and like you, I prefer white metal models.

My favorites are MOC's, Conquest, recent detailed Brooklins (especially the NB Center models) and WMCE's.

Here are a few pics of my collection....my models are a little more crammed than yours.

Welcome, Tim.  With models like these, you're going to be a real asset here.  Good pictures, too!

@ben-lampson Some lovely models there Ben and beautifully presented.  I still need to catch up with some of the later Brooklins which you already seem to have. The 1956 Riviera is one but I have held back as I have two Madison 1956 Buicks and somehow think they will clash with the Brooklin Riviera. Should I take the plunge?

 Very Impressive.  And even a little Pink Floyd artwork to boot. 😎

Oh Tim, you sure should! I am a white metal model snob, and I highly recommend the 1956 Riviera....in fact, I hold it in such high regards, that I compare it with my NB Center models because of its chrome trim (everywhere it should be), its resin headlights and its wing mirrors....one on both doors! 

Have you gifted yourself any of the NB Center models? they are honeys but pricey. I have the decked out Chrysler Town & Country, the '54 Caddy and the Lincoln Zephyr, and I am not-so-patiently waiting for the NB Center 1946 Pontiac fastback. 

Here are pics of the Zephyr and the Chrysler and the latest pic from Brooklin on the progress of the NB Center Pontiac.

I don't have pics of the Caddy yet....maybe that can be my project today.

lol Frank......you noticed the 'bottom' of my Pink Floyd poster above my models.....women say men have selective sight and hearing....maybe they are on to something! I have owned that poster for 25 years.

It has a glass cover over it and is framed.

@ben-lampson Just placed order for the Riviera.  The 46 Pontiac will be a must. Nearest Pontiacs I have to this era are :-

Beautiful models Tim, and sadly I do not have any of them......yet, but the hunt goes on!

Conquest/Madison models are my favorites, and it is my opinion that some of them hold a candle to some of the best MOC's.

You won't regret your Riviera purchase........mine plays well with its other Buick white metal counterparts.

@ben-lampson Thanks for posting these beautiful Buicks. Also I think I will place an order for the 41 Phaeton by Brooklin.  It goes well with the Westerns which I also have.

Love all those big-toothy-outrageous '50 Buicks. Where did they come from?

I have a couple of resin bodies (Provence Moulage) that are completed by parts from a cheap diecast (Solido) yet to build including the woody wagon, also a Sedanet. Doubt if I ever will though.

Models = Miracles in miniature = Holding History in ones hand
Cheers and Happy Collecting,
Steve

Those are by Conquest models. 

There is a two door coupe, a two door fastback, a convertible and a woody wagon.

All fantastic and very limited edition models. 

I pushed Buz to produce the fastback, so I bought all three colors.
