I do not sell these models. This site is only dedicated to my private collection.
The period, due to Covid, is certainly not the easiest, but sometimes it is necessary to have fun for a moment, even thinking about more fun things: this is why I have prepared 5 Jack-o'-lantern pumpkins this year! To make them darker, I decided to park the 3 baddest cars in movie history next to him: "Christine's" Plymouth Fury, "The Black Car" modified Lincoln Continental Mark III and "Death Proof "'s Chevy Nova SS. . Let the darkest night of the year begin !!!! PS: among the pumpkins, there is the "replica" of a very famous pumpkin seen in a movie from the 80s ... let's see who can figure out which one!

"Stand On It" - Work in Progress VIDEO
Good morning guys! Starting from today I will begin to show my custom models not only through the images published here on the site and on Instagram, but also through short videos (which you will find here but also directly on my Youtube channel) that will show all the modifies made in sequence on every single car. I just have to wish you good viewing with the first video dedicated to John Schneider's Dodge Challenger used in the movie "Stand On It".

"Bad Boys for Life" - Episode 1
Never sit idle! The models to be modified are so many and since here in Italy we are again in lockdown due to Covid-19, I took the opportunity to start some new custom model. This time it was the Porsche 911 Carrera 4S used in the movie "Bad Boys for Life" (sooner or later I will tell you about my personal opinion on this movie ...). To create the replica of this car I bought 2 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, one of the correct color (metallic blue) and one of the wrong color (gray) but with the right rims and interior as the one saw in the movie. All I needed was to swap the parts and this change was really quick and easy! I still have to make the plate, but in the next few days I will create and print it. Naturally I proceeded to sell the gray Porsche 911 Carrera 4S with the blue rims: the proceeds will certainly be used to finance some other projects! Enjoy and see you next time!

Mobile version of the site
Little news about the site (and not to the models that I'm modifing these days, but tomorrow I will update you with those too!): From today the site has a mobile version, more usable from your phones or tablets. At the moment it is only available for the English language, but by Monday it will also be ready for the Italian version. Furthermore, at the moment I have prepared most of the features present in the Desktop version of the site, but in the coming weeks I will continue adding other features as well, including uploading images to each individual user's photo gallery. If you feel like it, try the new version and if you find something that does not work, report it to me via the "Contact" section. Good evening!

Northeast Ohio Dukes: STUNTLIFE movies!
Today I finally received a package from the United States that I had been waiting for about ten days: inside there were the two movies by Raymond Kohn, "STUNTLIFE: The Wild Ride" and "STUNTLIFE: The Bandit Project". I have always followed Raymond's adventures since 2007 with his stunt shows organized during some events dedicated to the series "The Dukes of Hazzard" and as soon as I learned of the existence of these movies, I tried to find a way to watch them, but one of the solutions, viewing them on Amazon Prime Video, was impossible because such films are not broadcasted on this streaming platform in Europe. So I managed to contact Raymond via Facebook, who kindly helped me to complete the purchase of the 2 DVDs. After just over 10 days the package arrived at my home and I can finally enjoy all its evolutions and those of his group of stuntmen "Northeast Ohio Dukes". In the next few days I will be posting more in-depth reviews for each of the 2 films, but for now enjoy the DVD covers along with the diecast models of the two cars that Raymond jump like in the movies and TV series we loved as children. If you are interested in owning these DVDs go now and order them on the "Northeast Ohio Dukes" website, you will not regret it!

Enos Race Car - Episode 1
Good morning guys, between ups and downs (due to this damned situation of Covid) I try to distract myself a bit by modifying some diecast models. For some time I had been planning to complete the quartet of racing cars used in episode 7 of the first season of "The Dukes of Hazzard": more precisely, I was missing only Enos's car, already having several General Lee, the Lucifer (custom model created by me same years ago) and Cooter's Camaro, produced by AutoWorld. So I decided to buy a 1975 Plymouth Fury (in the police version of "Smokey and The Bandit") and modify it, preparing new graphics to be applied on the sides and on the trunk. Today I will show you the preparation of these graphics and the tests on the car, then in the next episodes the final application on the bodywork. Have fun and, please, stay safe!

My review about "STUNTLIFE: The Wild Ride"
Here I am today with the first of my two reviews of Raymond Kohn's films produced in collaboration with "Northeast Ohio Dukes". Today I'll tell you about the first DVD, "STUNTLIFE: The Wild Ride". The film shows the first 22 jumps made by Raymond with General Lee from 2007 to 2018. For each jump, presented naturally in chronological order, Raymond describes the preparation and the consequences reported on a physical level, proposing the various jumps from various angles to enjoy the evolutions of his General Lees at their best. In addition, there are interviews with his family and the staff of the "Northeast Ohio Dukes" in which the complicity and passion that unite them to Raymond, but also the concern before each jump for the "reckless" pilot shines through. During the preparation phases, some moments of the construction of the various "General Lee" are also shown: it should be noted, in fact, that the Chargers used in these jumps are practically non-restorable cars, mainly intended for junkyards, prepared on an aesthetic but also structural level only to be able to withstand the moment of the jump, and then be rearranged to be able to face other jumps. In addition to the excellent images that show the various jumps, everything is accompanied by an excellent soundtrack, capable of transmitting the right sensations according to the situations experienced by Raymond and his team. Personally I recommend the purchase, to lovers of the series "The Dukes of Hazzard" but above all to lovers of good old stunts, which today due to CGI have been a bit lost in Hollywood productions. What you will see in this DVD is all real: passion, courage and a bit of healthy unconsciousness, just what was proposed to us in the 70s / 80s by the various stuntmen of the cinema world and which made us love the world of films and automotive-themed TV series. If you are interested to buy this DVD, go to the http://www.northeastohiodukes.net site or the "Northeast Ohio Dukes" Facebook page.

Finally "Stand On It!" available on demand!
Finally Orange Friday has arrived, the most awaited Friday of the year by all fans of "The Dukes of Hazzard". Every year, on this last Friday of November, John Schneider always offers some news or offers to his fans: this year is the date on which the new film "Stand On it!" Is proposed on-demand. (of which I have already made the replica of the Dodge Challenger), a tribute to the 1977 film "Smokey & The Bandit". To see it, all you need to do is go to "CineflixDoD", register for free and then rent it (for 72 hours) via the Vimeo platform. Come on then, there is no time to waste: I have already rented it for the whole weekend and I will finally enjoy it after all these months of waiting!

My review about "STUNTLIFE: The Bandit Project"
Christmas is approaching and, albeit slowly, I am preparing to modify some diecast models during the holidays, especially because I don't want to waste time. In the meantime, I managed to watch the second DVD that Raymond Kohn of "Northeast Ohio Dukes" sent me, this time dedicated to the jump he made in 2019, inspired by the movie "Smokey and the Bandit". As in the first movie, also in this case we will be able to follow all the phases of the organization, not only the jump with the Trans Am, but also a jump (the twenty-third) carried out with a General Lee. In both cases, before witnessing the awesome jumps recorded by multiple cameras, we will be able to follow all the organizational complications that Raymond and his group had to solve in order to carry out these two great evolutions. I do not want to anticipate any of these problems, otherwise I would spoil the surprise: know that thanks to Raymond's tenacity, the jumps were completed in the best possible way, despite all the complications that he encountered. Of course, you can also witness all the preparation phases of the two vehicles, which Raymond managed to transform from 2 wrecks to 2 perfect stunt cars, first of all safe but also beautiful from the aesthetic side. As the first movie, you can purchase this DVD from the http://www.northeastohiodukes.net site or on the "Northeast Ohio Dukes" Facebook page. Alternatively, for those who reside in the United States of America it is possible to rent this film directly from the Amazon Prime video platform. Don't miss this great movie and stay tuned. Why? Because Raymond's next jump will be with another Trans Am, but this time it will be K.I.T.T. !!!!

Enos Race Car - Episode 2
Goodmorning everyone! We have left 2020 behind us and 2021 has already started two months ago but it is certainly no better than what we left behind. In these two months I have been quite busy with work, but the good thing is that in the meantime I have still moved on to modify a few custom models that I will show you in the coming weeks. So I would say to start again where we left off, that is from the progress on Enos' racing car: today I will show you the definitive laying of the side decals and the preparation of the one that will be placed on the trunk. In the next few days, however, you will finally see it completed, see you soon!

Veloce come il Vento: Stefano Accorsi e Matilda De Angelis
Even on this quiet Sunday, which precedes the orange zone in Lombardy, small satisfactions can come and change the day: on my Instagram channel I posted some pictures about the two Peugeot 205 that I had replicated from the movie "Veloce come il Vento / Italian Race" and I received the views and appreciations of the two main actors of the film, Stefano Accorsi and Matilda De Angelis. It is not the first time, it had already happened in the past, but even a small gesture like this is always a pleasure and makes it clear that my hobby is understood and appreciated!

Enos Race Car - Episode 3
And here we are finally at the third episode dedicated to Enos' racing car. In the following pictures you can see all the decals applied on each side of the diecast model. Only the license plates that I will create in the next few days are missing, after which I will publish the last episode of this model and I will show you the first works on my next custom model. So do not miss the next episode and everything that will come in the coming months, you will not be disappointed!

"Stand On It" - Sheriff car - Episode 1
After the summer, my creative vein is back! With the upcoming release of "Poker Run", the new movie by John Schneider sequel of "Stand On It", I have decided to continue creating the other cars used in this film series. So today it's the turn of the car used and destroyed by the Sheriff Cletus T. Necessary (Tyrus) and by his son Sonny T. Necessary (Dion Baia). I have been thinking of making this car for some time, but I never decided whether to do the intact version or the one destroyed following the various accidents suffered during the film. Confronting myself with Dion Baia, who kindly provided me with some information about it, I decided to do the destroyed version. As you can see from the pics, the model has a dashboard reproduced in resin by my friend Roberto because its original dashboard was used in the Dodge Charger from the movie "Christmas Cars" (since in that case the car is not a real Charger but a replica based on Ford Crow Victoria). Once finished and painted, however, you will not notice anything! So today I show you the starting model, but in the coming days you will already see the result obtained with the Dremmel. It will be very funny!!!!

"Stand On It" - Sheriff car - Episode 2
New changes on the Ford Crown Victoria from the movie "Stand On It". This time I removed all the external details (lights, mirrors, handles, etc.), all the internal door panels and I removed the pad printing on the sides of the body. In fact, I could have done it only on the doors (since they will be the only parts to remain white and I didn't want to repaint them) but while I was there I preferred to do it also on the fenders to do a more complete and precise job. The next step will be to cut the roof, so always stay around and by the middle of next week you will surely see the final "shapes" of this car!

"Stand On It" - Sheriff car - Episode 3
As promised, here's the fun part: cutting the roof! When I am about to make these changes I am always a bit tense because if you are wrong you can not go back, but I must say that now I'm getting carried away and in fact I was not wrong! After disassembling the entire model, I proceeded to cut the roof pillars with the Dremmel in exactly the same points as we saw in the movie "Stand On It". I then tried to do some setup tests by also removing the driver's door and I would say that the car begins to look more and more like the one used by Sheriff Cletus T. Necessary and his son Sonny. The next step will be to paint the car in a shade of blue/azure identical to that used in the film. Come back to visit the site because in a few days you will see the new look of this Ford Crown Victoria!

"Stand On It" - Sheriff car - Episode 4
Day by day, the Ford Crown Victoria is increasingly resembling the real model used in the movie "Stand On It" and its sequel "Poker Run" due out later this year. As you can see from the images, I proceeded to create the dent on the front left fender and of course the whole body was painted with a blue/light blue shade. The next changes will affect the bumpers, rims, dashboard and decals on the front. Now enjoy the photos and don't miss the next episodes of this series!

"Stand On It" - Sheriff car - Episode 5
A few days late, but here I am introducing you to some other updates made on the Sheriff's car from the movie "Stand On It". As you can see from the pictures, I modified the front bumper by making a cut just like on the real car. At that point I painted it with the same light blue color and I applied it to the body. Finally, I created the decals with the Sheriff's logo (using a photo of Dion Baia) to be applied on the front doors and I reassembled all the doors on the body, of course all except that of the driver which, as in the film, is torn off by a truck driver and placed in the rear seats as evidence of the crime. Next week I will publish the pictures of the car with all the details reassembled: a few more days and then you can finally see this model completed. See you soon and have a good weekend!

"Stand On It" - Sheriff car - Episode 6
We are almost running out of this custom model: in fact today it's time to show you the car with all the details repositioned on the body, but also the painted resin dashboard that my friend Roberto gave me some months ago (in the Links section you will also find the link to his modeling site). The next step will be to find more suitable rims similar to the iron ones used in the film. So do not miss the next episode: you can enjoy the Ford Crown Victoria finally completed! Have a nice week!

"Stand On It" - Sheriff car - Episode 7
We have finally arrived at the end of this last model that I customized! In fact, I managed to complete Sheriff Cletus T. Necessary's car from the movie "Stand On It": I removed the original Ford Crown Victoria wheels and replaced them with a correct set of wheels (from a 1969 Dodge Charger produced from Maisto) by painting them in matt black. The final effect is now perfect and below you can then see the finished model in all its glory. In the next few days I will show it to you together with the Dodge Challenger Hellcat used by John Schneider (Duke Marietta). Enjoy and have a good start to the week!

E.R. Locations at Warner Bros Studios
It's been some time since I wanted to come back to offer you other articles on the locations used in the films and TV series we are most fond of and having made some trips to the United States in recent years I have a lot of material to show you. It is therefore with great pleasure that today I will present another part of Warner Bros Studios (more or less close to the New York set area) which has been used for 15 years as the main location of the TV series "E.R.", namely the main building of the County General Hospital of Chicago. But let's not waste any more time: click on the map below and immerse yourself again in the most famous emergency room on TV!

Happy Halloween with Christine!
Finally, after changing the layout of the site throughout the month of October, we have come to celebrate Halloween. This year I thought about making a short video, using one of the first models I bought at the beginning of my collection and one of the last that arrived just a month ago: Christine! Enjoy this video and celebrate Halloween in the scariest way, perhaps enjoying the wonderful John Carpenter's film!
