  1. I actually made a huge list of "Waylonisms" that takes up several pages, too long for here. But two from Rosco: "I caught them fighting like the third monkey on the gangplank of Noah's Ark!" (S4E1 "Mrs Daisy Hogg") Or: Cooter: "Well, what brings you out so early, Boss?" Rosco: "I'll tell you what brings him out. He knows you’re an early bird, and with him being a worm, he plans on catching you.” (S5E19 "Welcome Back Bo 'N Luke")

  3. Y'all are awesome cousins, and it's an honor to break bread with y'all at the family gatherings! Now gotta add the last of the lights. First the tow rig has six small rounded-rectangular position lights. To make them all as uniform as possible I made a master shape from styrene, then made impressions of it in moldmaking material. I made a lot of extras since I wanted a lot to choose from, and would only take the best 6. This ended up being a very wise move. Clear resin was poured into the mold impressions and thank God there were 6 decent ones to use from the resulting blob. They h

  4. Now for the rotating beacon atop the rig. Found something very similar from Tony's Custom Squads. Still needed some cleaning up, and the finish redone in Alclad Stainless Steel (although Polished Aluminum perhaps might have been a better choice). License plate was made by cutting a piece of aluminum turkey roasting pan to match the size of the license plate decal. Now for the rear view mirrors. I discovered from my photos that there were two similar yet different styles used, probably meaning two different trucks used for filming the series. I settled

    Bo's Extravaganza 2021

  16. On to the actual tow cable. I was first referred to some braided metal cable produced specifically for modelmakers, but it was much too thick, and didn't coil around the spool at all. I found my answer in a picture hanging kit. The braided wire for hanging pictures on a wall was almost perfect in the smallest size, the 10-50 lb strength. I ran it through a candle flame to give it the appropriate worn/stained appearance. Next, some of the most critical scratchbuilding of the project, the sling. I tried various materials to simulate the heavy duty rubber straps, in

  17. Y'all are 'way too kind...believe me I'm a mere mortal myself, just ask my sweetheart or anyone who works with me! Not sure about Hoss though... The red paint on the wrecker was going to be critical. It isn't regular red. Not only is it sort of a brick red color, but it's also stained and heavily sunbleached, giving a chalky appearance. You know, like playground equipment that gets sunbleached and then when you touch it you get white chalky residue on your hand? That's what it looks like. So. How to do sunbleached off-red without making it look straight pink? I started w

  18. Scratchbuilding the winch was a challenge since a lot of it was guesswork. As far as the brace/frame (not sure the correct terminology), I discovered I didn't have to guess the width; apparently it should be the same width as the chassis frame, which makes sense from an engineering standpoint. Then, the more I built, the more extra details I'd discover in the photos. This was a long, long process. The tow booms were heavily modified from those in the MPC Datsun Monster Truck kit. Both ends were totally scratchbuilt to bring it all together, after careful stu

  19. The real nightmare of this project was the wrecker. I knew almost nothing about tow trucks, and there are no tow truck models or conversion sets for anything even close to this type. I was told it was a Holmes wrecker, in the 400 series....but amazingly, Google searches with that info yielded nothing! So I went the hard route. I went through countless Dukes episodes on DVD, pausing them to photograph any good views of the unit. Yep, that's right, I photographed the TV screen, and had photo prints made. The dozens of photos I took gave just enough reference material to build this.

  21. The entire chassis has a very toylike appearance, with almost every detail molded right on as one piece. So it was completely cut apart down to the basic frame and rebuilt. Front suspension was improved a bit, rear suspension completely rebuilt, and exhaust system with mufflers was scratch built. This would have to be mostly redone a second time when I realized the wheel base needed lengthening to accommodate the Holmes wrecker. I won't tell you what I said when I realized this.... The interior was made as dirty and grimy as possible, a

  23. They were talking about this on a financial show today. They have the same problem in the summer when people are running air conditioners a lot. People don't drive a lot in an ice storm but they drive a lot in the summer so are going to be charging their cars a lot. Proposing changes make folks feel good but they don't mean anything if they can't be implemented practically.

    Michael McDowell won the Daytona 500 when the two Penske teammates wrecked in front of him. I watched the replays on youtube this morning and was surprised that it was basically single file on the last few laps. This is his first Cup victory in his 14 year 358 starts career. At least now he'll be remembered for something other than surviving that horrendous practice crash at the beginning of his cup career. All the drivers walked away from the crashes this year though I bet Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski are nursing some pain this morning. Here's the top ten. 1 Michael McDowell

  26. LoL I'll have to ask her who she thinks is the best looking guy on GH. None of them are as handsome as Jesse Duke though. Speaking of Denver Pyle, I just watched the episode of Andy Griffith where Drisco Darling has a crush on Aunt Bea. Denver was born in 1920 and she was born in 1902 but they looked similar in age. I'm now Denver's age from the second year of the filming of Dukes.

  28. I wouldn't word it "the hots" but she is trying to look like Emma as much as possible to make me happy...fixed her hair that way, got the same glasses, slouches down a little to look shorter. She even got a job at the post office and rides wheelies on her dirt bike to deliver the letters. Of course there's the old saying "what's good for the goose is good for the gander". In exchange, I've been working on my Jesse look and sound to make her happy. Here goes "I ain't yer Uncle Jesse!" There, did that sound like him?

    I'm afraid I had to Google her name, Roger. It looks like she's been in a lot of things I've heard of, but very few that I've seen. One thing in her bio caught my eye - she's from a place in Mississippi called Purvis, which is nearly our favorite sheriff's middle name.

  31. The only girl currently on TV I think is pretty is Lacey Chabert. She does a lot of Hallmark movies now but was most famous for Mean Girls. She's nowhere as pretty as my wife or Emma Tisdale but she's okay. Maybe Hoss or someone can post a newer picture of her since I don't know how. She looks a little different now than on Mean Girls.

  37. 'Treasure of Hazzard' was on earlier, and there's a scene near the end where Daisy and Boss are fighting over the box with the payroll in it. As the others run over, I'm not convinced that that's Denver on the right. It's odd because he's in the other scenes at the end (the inset picture is taken about 30 seconds later). What do y'all think? His hair looks more gray than white. Maybe it's the same double who was caught in the shot below from 'Mason Dixon's Girls'.
