"Stand On It" - Episode 4
Today we continue with the other project that I am carrying out in this period, the Dodge Challenger used by John Schneider in the movie "Stand On It". Finally, after having completely painted the body in glossy black, I proceeded to apply the grids on the air intakes of the hood (I used a kitchen sieve), after which I applied the gold stripes along the entire body. The result is amazing: even if the model has yet to be completed (mirrors, side windows and some other details) I could not resist putting it side-by-side to the two Pontiac Trans Ams from "Smokey and The Bandit", the film that inspired the new "Stand On It". See you soon with the latest updates on this model, after which I will start modifying a new model!

"Christmas Cars" - Episode 5
Summer is now over and autumn, with its low temperatures, has already shown up here in Varese. So what's better than getting to work to complete some diecast models? Over the past weekend I took the opportunity to work a bit on the General Lee used in John Schneider's "Christmas Cars" movie. Finally I managed to paint the rims, then finishing them with chrome details using the "Liquid Chrome" pens produced by Pump Marker (purchased on Amazon). The final effect is amazing, just look at the comparison I made with the rims of an old General Lee produced by ERTL. In the next few days I will also make a comparison with those mounted on the General Lee of AutoWorld. But now enjoy all the photos and let me know if you like them! See you soon!

"Stand On It" - Episode 3
Happy weekend buddies, today I want to show you the progress made on the Dodge Challenger used in the movie "Stand On It" by John Schneider. As you can see from the images, I finally painted the bodywork with an awesome glossy black: I am very satisfied with the result obtained above all on the bonnet, but also for the black / gold combination that the car must have at the end of the work. We are definitely on the right track, there is still a lot of work to do but I am more and more satisfied! See you on the next episode!

"Stand On It" - Episode 2
Here I am back from vacation! During the holidays I planned (and ordered) several new models to modify during the fall and winter, but there will be time for that... Today I want to show you the progress made on the Dodge Challenger used in the movie "Stand On It" by John Schneider. As you can see from the pictures, I have finally removed the paint from the body, and I have also started to do some tests for printing the eagle that will then go on the hood. To conclude, I then proceeded to fill the hood air intakes, perfectly detailing the new hood lines. In the next episode I will finally show you the painted bodywork. Now enjoy the pictures!

"Stand On It" - Episode 1
As I promised, here I am with the last post before the holidays: before showing you the Challenger used in "Stand On It" I show you the update on the Charger used in "Christmas Cars": today my buddy Andrea gave me the 4 wheels printed in resin, still need to paint them, but I have already tried to fit them on the car and I would say they look really good! Judge for yourself! In just over 2 weeks, on my return, I will finish the work on this car, be patient! The work on the Challenger is progressing very fast, so I didn't want to wait too long to show you the pictures of this car, so I take this opportunity to show you the changes made to the bodywork to create the T-Top, the air intakes on the hood and the painting of the gold-colored rims. At the end of the holidays I will show you all the further updates and I am sure you will fall in love with this car too and you will be looking forward to watc John Schneider's new movie "Stand On It". Now enjoy the pictures and see you soon!

"Christmas Cars" - Episode 4
After a few days here I am with some new updates on the Dodge Charger/Ford Crown Victoria used in the movie "Christmas Cars". As I had anticipated in the last post dedicated to this model, I had mounted temporary rims borrowed from a General Lee produced by ERTL. In the meantime, however, thanks to the help of dear friend Andrea Ciardulli who assisted me in the 3D modeling, I proceeded to create new replacement rims that came as close as possible to the American Racing Vector rims mounted on the real General Lee. Below you can see the various resin printing tests that I did up to the version that I believe to be the definitive one: the final model has not yet been painted, but this operation will be carried out when I return from the many desired holidays! In addition, in the gallery of new images you can also see the new decals that I have prepared and applied to the cut roof. Be patient then for another 2 weeks, after which I will update you with the final photos of the painted and mounted rims on the car. But tomorrow, before leaving for the holidays, I will publish one more post dedicated to the first modifications made on the Dodge Challenger of the movie "Stand On It". I'm in a creative mood and I have to take advantage of it!

"Stand On It" - New movie from John Schneider
It's a pretty prolific period from a modeling point of view: the lockdown period has given me new creative ideas, so I'm working a lot on many new models. One of these is the awesome Dodge Challenger used by John Schneider in his new movie "Stand On It", a tribute film to the legendary "Smokey and The Bandit" starring Burt Reynolds in 1977. The news of this new movie had already been circulating on the web for several months: some short videos and some images stolen from the set had appeared, so I wasted no time and immediately set to work to create a 1:18 scale copy of the car star of the film. Of course I am still working on this car (strangely, in fact, I am working at the same time on this Challenger and on the Charger of "Christmas Cars"): in a few days I will show you the first images from the beginning of the works, but since that two days ago is when the trailer of the film was released, I didn't want to wait any longer, so I'll give you just a little preview of my model (together with the models of the cars used in the films of John Schneider, "Collier & Co." and "Christmas Cars"), but of course together with the movie trailer so you can enjoy this little masterpiece that will arrive in a few months on DVD. But now enough with the words, enjoy the trailer !!!!
