I love the older Brooklins BluntFronts! I have the Kaiser Manhattan too.
I have the early Tucker Torpedo and the second revised version too. I also have 1 of the 3 different color versions made for the Tucker Club.
The detail of the older Brooklins wasn't that good, but they are still a favorite of mine. You didn't have to worry about loosing mirrors, antennas, and the hood ornaments that you had to glue on with the newer Brooklin castings.
