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




The new General Lee!

   Finally, this morning I get my Authentics General Lee. The model is incredible: it's completely different respect the old one and the details are very high. The paint job is perfect: the orange is bright and smooth and there are no faults. The window's profiles are not painted but they are realized with chromium-plated plastic (so, they look more realistic). On this version, the rims are very accurate: the design is perfect and they don't seem "toy" rims like the old General Lee. Also the front and the rear parts are changed: on the front we find revolving lights, while in the rear we find real plastic lights (not painted).
   The greatest update on this model is the trunk: on the old version, it's binded with the body, while in this version it can be opened. Indeed, in the trunk we can found a fifth wheel and some other tools. However, to see another great update, we can open the hood: now, on the engine bay, there is an amazing 440 Magnum engine, very detailed, with a lot of particulars, like the wirings, the battery, the air filter, etc. At last, the interior is completely changed: RC2/ERTL used a different plastic to realized the dashboard and the seats and it appears more realistic. Like the rest of the car, also the interior has been enriched with a lot of details, like the safety belts, the lower console and, finally, the rear seats!!!
   However, this is only a fast review of this model: tomorrow I will publish a complete comparison between the old and this General Lee, like the comparison I realized some months ago with "Herbie" diecast model.
