John Kuvakas is a great friend of hobbyDB and a connoisseur of cars in 1:1 and smaller scales. He started a YouTube channel to highlight old and new models and we just love it. So we asked him to start sharing his Top-3 most popular videos of each month. Give them a watch here!
November was a busy month, setting a record for visits to the channel. As some of the 1/43 makers move into the late sixties and early-to-mid seventies, we’re seeing a very positive reaction to these cars with a surprising number of folks watching videos reviews of models based on car-design’s “Malaise Era.”
This bears watching as the folks who grew up loving cars in the seventies never considered them being anything other than the newest, shiniest, most desirable of all the cars on the road. Even as we see the demographic for the hobby evolve, older, well-executed models can still be very popular. It seems there will always be a market for outstanding quality.
Our most popular video was a review of Brooklin’s spectacular new NB Center Collection 1946 Pontiac Torpedo 8 Sedan Coupe. The new line of highly detailed replicas of the cars in the NB Center Collection is hitting home runs with each new release. With an all-new factory functioning on all cylinders, 2023 should prove to be a promising year for Brooklin.
Brooklin snagged second place as well with a video posted late in October that continues to attract viewers well into November, “Brooklin & BCC News for October 2022.” Brooklin fans are eager to hear about the new factory. Now that it’s back up and running, work on the spectacular new ’54 Caribbean is commencing.
Third place was occupied by Stamp’s beautiful ’69 Cadillac Coupe DeVille. Stamp, a relative newcomer to resin scale models, is doing some really amazing models with incredible work on their wheels, trim and interiors. This video hit a soft spot for a lot of folks.
That’s a wrap for November. Here’s wishing a Merry Christmas to all, may all your blessings be 1:1 and your problems 1:64!
