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

"Christmas Cars" - Work in Progress - Step 1

Once the quarantine due to the lockdown ended, I had to recover some (of the freedom and) of the lost time, but I still dedicated myself to customizing my diecast models. I have not updated the site, so I take this opportunity now to offer you some models in the coming weeks that I have modified in recent months.
Today I would like to start again by offering you the 1969 Dodge Charger, in the "General Lee" version used in the last movie directed, produced and starring John Schneider, "Christmas Cars". I don't know how many of you have seen it, but in my case I managed to buy an autographed copy of the DVD directly from John Schneider and I enjoyed it during the last Christmas holidays. Watching the movie I had the idea of ​​making a model of this car: many will not love the choice to cut the roof of a General Lee (but by watching the film and following all the recent facts related to the problems of the Confederate flag you will understand more of its meaning, still appreciating more about the movie and the message that John Schneider wanted to convey).
Going back to the model, the car used in the film is actually a Ford Crown Victoria covered with the bodywork of a 1969 Dodge Charger: I wanted to recreate something that therefore came closest to this fusion of two cars, so I didn't use a real General Lee model (ERTL, AutoWorld, etc.), but a simple 1969 Dodge Charger produced by Maisto and a Ford Crown Victoria from Motormax. In the next episodes of this work in progress I will show you how I managed to combine these two cars, creating a "hybrid" General Lee without its roof. But now I start showing you the model and the first changes that I made on it, removing the rear black stripe). Enjoy and have a nice weekend!
