General Lee - 15 year project
Posted by vince311 on Saturday, March 11, 2017 9:47 PM

Been working on this model for 15 years. Stop and start, stop and start.

Slowly getting closer. maybe 2017 is the year

I found nothing in the AMT general lee kit worth using. Maybe the 1/16 scale is better?

For my build, the roll bar, push bar and antenna are scratch built. Vector wheels are resin from Fireball Modelworks. I created the decals. Body gets a coat of orange in the Spring.

The Revell Charger kit is the way to go for accuracy in 1:25. The MPC 1:16 kit is a NASCAR body, with incorrectly shaped fender wells.

Thx Joe! I had seen your work years back on a DOH site. I figured as much on the 1:16. Sigh. Say, what do you recommend for the "general lee" decals?
