Project "Lee 1"

   Yesterday, I started to work on another model: with an another General Lee I want try to create the "Lee 1", the very first General Lee ever created (it's famous because it's the General Lee that appears at the end of every theme song).
   First of all, I started to create the CB antenna: to do this, I used a simple eraser and using the cutter, I modeled the correct shape to create the base; then, using a bristle taken from a broom, I painted it with chrome paint to create the rod. Moreover, using Paint Shop Pro, I created the cross flags decal and I attached it in front of the CB antenna (remember that the "Lee 1" belong to the "Georgia Era", so it has this decal near the back window). For last but not least, using 2 original ERTL rollbars, I created a full rollcage following the shape used in the real car: the result is perfect and this evening I will paint it with the correct color and then I will continue to work on the interior. Enjoy with the pictures!!!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

   Finally, I painted the full rollcage: I shoot some pictures putting it into the car and the result is very very good: I like it very much and I'm very satisfied!! Moreover, I removed the chrome profiles on the lateral mudguards (like the original "Lee 1") and I added some decals: in particular, I added the rear license plate (the famous "CNH 320"), the front rebel flag and the Warner parking authorization on the windscreen.
   Unfortunately, this post will be the last for the 2007: today I will leave my town to spend the Christmas holiday with my family and my girlfriend. I will come back in the first days of January, so I want to use this occation to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

Other updates on the "Lee1"

   Finally, after a long Christmas holiday I resumed to work on the "Lee1". First of all, I tryed to improve the rims: I created for every wheel a circular mask, and then I painted the uncovered zone with black mat. Later, on every wheel, I painted some parts with a silver drawing pen to create the correct effect created by the "American Vectors" on the real car. Terminated to work on the wheels, I started to work on the lateral rockets and on the internal chassis: to modify these parts, I used some "plasticard" A4 papers. With a pen I traced the correct shapes I needed and then with the cutter I cut the contour. In the end, I attached all the plastic parts on the chassis to recreate the correct structure and then I painted all the chassis with a gold/bronze color.
   Unfortunately, in this period is snowy, so I can't take good pictures of the model: I need to wait until the sun will come back, so go back ASAP to visit my site!!

The "Lee1" is taking its shape...

   In these days, I worked hard on the "Lee1": first of all, I created the lower console using the plasticard and then I painted it with a tan color (today I will realize a decal with the wood texture for the top part). Moreover, with a lot of fear, I corrected the ride height: to do this, I cut about 2mm from every suspension, but now the result is perfect: now the car seems to have a lowering kits and it's seems more aggressive. Subsequently I painted all the chassis with a gold color: naturally, I painted the engine compartment too so in the next days I will work on the engine. At the end, I created a new front push bar: to do this, I used the original leading edge, and then with the plasticard I recreated the correct shapes; after a good paint, I mounted it on the model and the look is great! That's all, so... enjoy yourself with the new pictures!!!

Only few updates

   Others little updates on the "Lee1": I added a decal on the dashboard to reproduce all the car instruments. Moreover, I started to work on the engine: I'm trying to create with the plasticard the filter cover; when it will be ready, I will paint it with black mat and then I will put on it a decal with the brand "FOUR BARREL".
   Lastly, I continued to work on "Street Hawk", trying to create the lateral layout: in the next days, I will correct some little defects and then I will create the same shapes with the plasticard.

Little steps on the "Lee1" engine

   Step by step, the engine go ahead... I finished to prepare the air filer (black mat paint with the "FOUR BARREL" decal) and then I painted all the parts with an orange paint. Now, I need only to add some details, like the wirings, then when I will finish it, I will put it on the engine bay and I will try to recreate the famous jump in front of the Seney Hall.

The engine is almost finished

   In these days I'm working on the "Street Hawk" bike, but I found the time to work also on the Lee1's engine. I added some details, in particular some wirings and then I installed it on the engine bay. However, the model it's not finished: I need to add other distinctive features to the engine, like the car battery and the water tray. Moreover, I will substitute all the decals with a new correct set.

Other details on the Lee1

   After a long period, I resumed to work on the "Lee1", infact the model is not yet finished: I need to refine the engine bay adding some details. So yesterday, I painted with black gloss the front traverse like the real "Lee1" and this evening I will paint the orange stripe on the front grill and then I will add other details like the wirings and the battery.

Lee1: The Neverending Story!

   As promised, yesterday I corrected other details on the "Lee1". First of all, I painted the front grill with gloss black, then I corrected the edges of the front light's grill: curiously, ERTL produced this model with orange outlines and this is not correct. So, with a lot of patience I accomodated this error.
   The next weekend I will go in Verona to meet my girlfriend, but the next week I will continue to work on the Lee1, especially on the engine. Have a nice weekend!!

A new antenna for the Lee1

   In this period, I started to work hard on my models (I'm working on the Lee1 and on the 2 Travellers but this time I will show you only the progress on the first one). In particular, I created the front radio antenna located on the hood side. To do this, I used a bristle catch from a broom, then I painted it with a silver paint. The result is good and finally I can say that my Lee1 is complete on the exterior... Now I need only to complete it, finishing the engine bay.

Perfection is impossible

   In the last weekend I worked a lot on my models (especially on the Travellers) but today I will show you only my last update on the Lee1: watching some pictures of the real car, I noticed I forgot to add some chromed profiles (normally used with the vinyl roof). So, using plasticard I realized 4 thin stripes and then I painted them with silver paint. I hope you like the final result!!

Two simple updates on my Lee1

   The other day I won on eBay a beautiful object about the Lee1, the first General Lee ever built. Waiting for that object arrives at my house, I decided to fix two flaws that my Lee1 has always had: the push bar and the antenna close to the hood. So, I created a new push bar with the plasticard (now with the proper point of attack on the body) and then I scaled the base of the antenna, now more precise and less coarse.
