Last Updates: October, 31 2020!!

I do not sell these models. This site is only dedicated to my private collection.




Halloween 2020

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!

Xtreme Lee - Work in progress - Episode 5

And here we are, as promised, to introduce you to the latest changes to Kenny Wayne Shepherd's "Xtreme Lee". In this case, the changes focused mainly on the interior, with the preparation of the decal for the center console. Not happy, however, I also decided to replace the engine with a more beautiful and detailed one produced by ACME. Needless to say, the result is fantastic: I am really satisfied with how it turned out and on the Instagram profile it is enjoying a lot of success among fans (including the same Kenny Wayne Shepherd who put "like" to the photo!).
Now, I just take a weekend break, and then we start again with some new models, so come back and see me soon, since there will be news for Halloween anyway!

Xtreme Lee - Work in progress - Episode 4

Last weekend I was able to work on the interior of Kenny Wayne Shepherd's "Xtreme Lee". First of all, I removed the old seats and built a support with plasticard to support the new, more sporty and enveloping seats (coming from an old Ferrari produced by Burago). Furthermore, since the new seats had a hollow back, I always proceeded with the plasticard to create the closure of the back. Of course, I then proceeded to paint all the pieces with a light brown paint (code RAL 1001, produced by Macota) and the result is truly fabulous! However, to complete the dashboard I proceeded to create a template of the instrument area and through my computer I created a decal to be applied on the plastic part. Finally, since I do this on all my models, I have lined the car floor with a darker brown carpet.
We are therefore now towards the conclusion of this model: next time I will show you all the finished interior and the final assembly of the car. Bring a little more patience, it will be worth it, I promise!

Xtreme Lee - Work in progress - Episode 3

The Xtreme Lee couldn't stay without the front wheels for too long, so I went to work and modified the front axle to accommodate the new ACME wheels. To do this, I had to put some spacers, that is washers that allowed the wheels to be positioned flush with the body, just as I had already done for the rear wheels. Could I limit myself to this? Absolutely not, so I created (like the good old days!) the front push-bar with plasticard. Of course I also took the opportunity to report all the measurements on Fusion 3D so I can re-print others in the future (you never know!).
That's all for today, but stay tuned: as soon as the brown paint I ordered arrives, I will proceed with the interior modification, you will see some nice ones!

Xtreme Lee - Work in progress - Episode 2

Slowly I am carrying out the work on the Xtreme Lee: today I have been busy recreating the rear axle where to connect the new rear wheels produced by ACME (model A1801837W). Since the attachment of the wheels was different from the standard ones produced by Maisto, I had to recreate a new axle with wire that would adapt to the suspension system provided on the model. I also adjusted the set-up and the new wheels are now at the right height.
In the next few days I will go on mounting the new ACME wheels at the front. Enjoy it and see you next update!

Xtreme Lee - Work in progress - Episode 1

We are now in the middle of autumn, it's cold and the Covid-19 nightmare still hovers over our heads: there is nothing better, then, than staying at home in the warmth, perhaps working on some new model. It has been a long time since I wanted to replicate it in 1:18 scale and I finally found the incentive to start the legendary "Xtreme Lee", a modernized clone of General Lee made by musician Kenny Wayne Shepherd. To create this new model, I started from a base that is now fairly cheap and easy to find, the 1969 Dodge Charger made by Maisto. So I started by removing the R/T pad printed on the rear of the model and then I moved on to make the roof and door stickers using some photos of the real car found on the Internet.
Now enjoy the photos, in the next few days I will show you the work done on the suspensions and rims. Have a nice Sunday!

"Stand On It" - Episode 5

Finally we have arrived at the last episode of the series dedicated to the Dodge Challenger used by John Schneider in the movie "Stand On It". Not much was missing to complete it, but I still had to install the exterior mirrors and build the rear side windows. So now I can consider this custom model really completed, but as you can see from the image above, something is brewing: you will remember that at the beginning of the creation of this model I used 2 Challengers to use the front wheels of one to put them in place of the rears of the other. So I had this second Challenger and this time I have decided that I will do something that I have never done before, but you will have to wait ... it will be a surprise ... in motion!

"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!
