BRK226 Is Here.
Its not a complicated looking model, but its good. The 1970 Buick GS 455 Hardtop Saloon. Its finished in Silver Mist Irridescent with a black interior. This one has interior detail; gear lever, window winders, plated instrument panel, but I don't think this is an indicator that all Brooklin Models will be treated as such as the Coupé is based on the convertible so Brooklin have used the same parts. Recommended retail price is £175, but as before, shopping around will no doubt reveal discounted Buicks. I'll post the video shortly. Here's the still pictures

BRK226 Is Here. by Mike Coupe #25480
Looks great! (EOM) by Ed Glorius #25480.1
It looks good, but for now I am going to wait on this one. Sure would like a different color. (EOM) by John Merritt #25480.2
Yes, the color does nothing for it, IMHO. (EOM) by Mark Sweeney #25480.2.1
Agreed. the color doesn't do it any favors. (EOM) by Curtis Parisi #25480.2.1.1
Its not my fave color for this car, but I think it will look better "up close". (EOM) by Jack Dodds #25480.2.1.1.1
I'm afraid they'll do a vinyl roof on a re-color, like the maroon Wildcat 4-door. (EOM) by Ed Glorius #25480.2.2
There were a ton of GS's with vinyl tops. (EOM) by John Kuvakas #25480.2.2.1
Yep, and this one might have benefitted from a black vinyl top. by Rick Thompson #25480.2.2.1.1
I think it would look much better with a black "vinyl" roof. (EOM) by Jack Dodds #25480.2.2.1.1.1
Pics: Again, like this? by David Knight #25480.2.2.1.1.1.1
Yes...much better...and of course the white letter tires are perfect. (EOM) by Jack Dodds #25480.2.2.1.1.1.1.1
Rick and Jack I agree with both of you. My 69 GS had a vinyl top. (EOM) by Bob Jackman #25480.2.2.1.1.1.2
It seems like its difficult to do the vinyl roof look justice in 1:43. (EOM) by Jack Dodds #25480.2.2.1.1.2
Would not a satin finish fit the bill? Neither matt, nor gloss. (EOM) by Mike Coupe #25480.2.2.1.1.2.1
A textured vinyl look can be done by using a by Ken Smith #25480.2.2.1.1.2.1.1
