These are part of NB's personal 1/43 collection - had to be moved to make room for the unveiling!

Like Julie from Brooklin posted to Facebook, I also took the 1/43 I bought and placed it on the 1/1!

It was cool to see the 1/43 and 1/1 versions of this too!

Finally, Brooklin made 20 limited sets of these 'exploded' cars.  Here are 2 of them, that are displayed at the NB Center.

Thanks for the pictures Karl. My Town & Country is scheduled to be delivered today.

Karl bought a Brooklin that wasn't an Alfa!!!! I am shocked!

Mr. B's diecasts and handbuilts were moved to the NHVR (National Historic Vehicle Register) area to make room for the NB Brooklin models in the display cases. I got a couple of shots too. I have most of the Dinky Toys and mostly in the same colors.

I have most of these Dinky Toys as well.  Whenever I see such a pic it brings a smile to my face and brightens up my day.  Same goes for vintage Matchbox and Corgi. That's nostalgia for ya I guess!

Does these Sinclair gas pumps will be available on the Brooklin website to the general public?

@michel-lemieux It could have even been me! I know i did at least three examples of all six models. Check to see you have the correct booklet inside - it was fast and furious boxing up the correct cars for the box..

I did not know the exploded models were for sale! Someone missed making an announcement or I was off riding in one of Mr. B's cars.

Very nice selection of mostly mint cars. I note the racing Austin Healey Sprite next to the one table. Was this decorated as 'Group 44"?

I sure hope that Town & Country was firmly attached to the car window sill!

I don't think the exploded versions were ever officially on sale.

I tried to be fast!   It was a very wide sill (same for the fender).

It was dug up somewhere - no decorations.  As Harv said, it was in the NHVR section, not part of the NB collection...
