Happy Birthday General Lee - Part 1

Waiting to complete the arrangement of the last showcases in my new attic (I will publish some new pics during the next weekend) I am carrying out the modification of 4 diecast models in parallel and today I would like to start showing you the first one. It was a project that I had in mind for a long time but that I never decided to make it: after seeing a similar version from my friend Roberto, I therefore decided to do it, but making a version more similar to the one made several years ago by Jeremey Tigner. Naturally I'm talking about the Dodge Charger that can be glimpsed in the episode "Happy Birthday General Lee": as a base I'm using a black Dodge Charger produced by Maisto and in addition to making some changes in terms of paintwork, I'll apply new resin-molded rims, a new engine much more precise than the standard one and of course I will also modify the interior, changing color and adding many more details.
In this first episode, I'll show you the starting model and the new engine, then I'll show you the first changes in the next ones. See you soon and have fun!

Happy Birthday General Lee - Part 2

Here we are at the second episode of General Lee in the "Happy Birthday" version. In this phase I proceeded to modify the platform to accommodate the new engine, I painted the interior with the classic light brown and completely masked the bodywork of the car, leaving only the front mudguard on the driver's side exposed, then painting it with a gray primer to give the same effect as seen in the TV series. I also proceeded to paint the bonnet in the same way: to do so, I followed the same logic as Jeremey Tigner. In fact, in the series, the front fender and hood are completely distorted in the impact, so when the Dodge Charger is repaired, these parts are replaced and painted with a primer, before being painted orange. In the gallery, therefore, you will also find the repainted bonnet that I modified to be easily assembled and disassembled once the model is closed. But you will see all this in the next episode!

Happy Birthday General Lee - Part 3

Although in the new house there is always some little work to do to finish some rooms, I managed to find some time to go on with the "Happy Birthday" version of the General Lee. First of all I painted all the elements relating to the interior (seats, floor, side panels, dashboard, etc.) and after having assembled them, I proceeded to assemble the bodywork on the chassis: from the photos it is possible to see first of all the new engine it lends itself well on an aesthetic level in this diecast model, but also the final rendering of the model with and without the hood. In the next few days I will print the American Racing Vector rims (as I already did for the Dodge Charger from "Christmas Cars") so stay tuned because once this model is finished I will immediately start working on another version of the General Lee. Happy Sunday!

Happy Birthday General Lee - Part 4

A few days late, I managed to print the American Racing Vector rims with the attachment compatible with that of the Dodge Charger produced by Maisto. I printed 8 (and not just 4) because I will also need them for another model that I will make in the next few weeks, but it's too early to talk about it yet. In the next few days I will paint them and color the spokes and then finally I will be able to apply them on the model to complete this latest creation of mine. See you soon and enjoy the pictures!

Happy Birthday General Lee - Part 5

Ready to start the engine? Finally I was able to complete the rims of this model: after printing them, I painted them matte black and then I detailed the spokes with a silver marker. Once positioned on the car, I proceeded to put the front grille and the rear light unit back in their place and this model too can be considered completed and ready to be displayed in the windows together with all the others.
Now enjoy the photos and see you soon with updates on other models in the pipeline!
