    I was flicking through the TV channels tonight when I saw "The Dukes of Hazzard" in the listings. I've been here before, and then been disappointed to find that it's the 2005 movie, but this time it was the real thing. Dukes is being shown on a UK channel called Forces TV (part of the British Forces Broadcasting Service - Sky 181, Virgin 274, Freeview 96 and Freesat 165). They're showing double episodes at various times on Saturdays and Sundays - tonight I caught the end of 'Mary Kaye's Baby' and then 'Repo Men'. You can catch all of the first six episodes across the weekend. Here's tomorrow's line-up (all times are GMT): 1pm - 'One Armed Bandits' 2pm - 'Daisy's Song' 6pm - 'One Armed Bandits' 7pm - 'Daisy's Song' 10pm - 'High Octane' 11pm - 'Swamp Molly' Next Saturday we've got: 1pm - 'Mary Kaye's Baby' 2pm - 'Repo Men' 6pm - 'Mary Kaye's Baby' 7pm - 'Repo Men' 10pm - 'Luke's Love Story' 11pm - 'The Big Heist'

    Thank you! Not sure how long exactly, but several long months for sure. Wish I'd been starting with one good-conditioned kit instead of a junker with some spare parts added, I wouldn't have had half as many setbacks.

    If I could only pick one it would be High Octane but that is sure a tough choice.

    Hello Everyone, I would like to point out that with respect to the Dukes of Hazzard, the phraseology for the Corona virus is wrong- Why do they say "Flattening the curve,.....", when the Dukes of Hazzard song says - "Straight'ning the curve, ......... flatt'ning the hills- Someday the mountain might get them, but the law never will" Amit Kshirsagar amost1972@gmail.com Ann Arbor, Michigan

    New to Hazzard Net

    Hey Everyone! Just wanted to say hello! I have been watching DOH since I was a little boy in the 80's . I have been reading this page for many years but finally wanted to join. I successfully taped every show while it was broadcast on the Nashville Network. It was all on vhs tape. I spend a lot of time buying old cars and lunch boxes to decorate my radio room. I currently hold a ametuer radio licence and spend a lot of time on the radio talking with friends locally and all over USA. I always make sure to mention that I got started in radio due to the DOH. I currently own 2 CB radios that were the type used in the General Lee. I have made a Youtube video of those radios. I keep them just for decorative purposes. Anyway, been wanting to decorate my radio room like JD's Boars Nest office. I need green lights, a English Bulldog statue, swordfish, pictures of dogs playing pool, retro wood paneling a Barbour chair and so on.... Lol. If u know where to get any cool props, please let me know. Also, i was thinking about getting a glass case to put some of my memorabilia. I hate just knowing that it is sitting in boxes... Tnx everyone for making this a great page..

    Once damaged to taste, the foil is filled from behind with tons of gap-filling superglue and plastic strip reinforcements. Then to the body itself, the same treatment but MUCH bigger. LOTS of superglue to fill it all from behind. Then priming and sanding in appropriate areas.

    Coronavirus

    Well here in Ohio the governor basically said Shelter in place which started midnight this morning. My wife's work is one of the business's not shutting down because they are making some kind of doohickey for Hospitals though after they fill their latest order the boss might shut it down for a week or two. We've taken some time off working for my cousin since one of the businesses we clean the employees travel all over the world and we just don't feel safe cleaning the offices at this time. Saturday we had to go to 4 stores just to fill this week's grocery list The last stores that were open for 24 hours in town finally scaled back their hours to just 12 hours a day to mitigate the panic buying. Sad part is even though stores are limiting certain products to 1 or 2 per customer people are still finding ways around that by either going in multiple times or using their kids or hitting all the stores for the same product. I was chatting with one store employee when we were waiting in line for the store to open and we were talking about the milk panic buying the other day and one of the panic buyers happened to chime in saying they needed all that milk for their business, then it got kind of ugly with the crowd so the topic got changed to calm things down. Hopefully with this shut in order maybe the stores can restock their shelves. Stay safe and Healthy everyone. Thank god we all have Hazzard county to escape too every once and a while.

    Coronavirus

    Since I've been sick for so long, mine and hubby's lives haven't changed a whole lot with self-isolation. LOL. Now everybody else gets to experience how I've been living. Hubby and I are both being careful because we're both immunocompromised. We're going to be home for a very long haul. Fortunately, I'm an introvert and ever since I was a kid I had no problems finding ways to entertain myself. I hope y'all are doing well. If you happen to read this, please check in on this thread so we know you're doing ok. The West coast seemed to shut down pretty quickly and it appears to have slowed the spread a bit. I see the East coast has exploded though. Stay safe over there, Easties. And if you're one of the ones who happened to hoard toilet paper, I've heard you can make moonshine from it...

    I watched Days of Thunder last night. I haven't seen it in years. I'd forgotten how good it is. There were a couple unrealistic scenes but overall pretty entertaining.

    Lots of people around here still leave the keys in their cars, not so much with all the meth/heroin problems, but definitely common place to leave your keys in the ignition when I was a teen (90's). So I imagine it was even more commonplace to do so in the late 70's early 80's in the rural south.

    My favorite moonshiner is Jesse Duke. My second favorite is Hobie Harkins. My third favorite is Popcorn Sutton. Since two of those three have passed on to ShineHeaven all that's left is Hobie's Finest....although rumor has it that Hoss has a couple barrels of Jesse's hidden down in the root cellar. Somehow they made it across Hazzard Pond.

    Dukes DVD Boxset?

    I've never come across Shout! Factory, but their FAQ page says "Most of our actual releases are Region 1/A locked, due to the fact that we almost always do not have the legal right to sell our products outside of North America." Unless you have a multi-region player, you'll need Region 2 for the UK. They don't seem to be selling Dukes at the moment anyway. There are plenty of copies on ebay, both new and used. If you don't mind used, the Milton Keynes and Bletchley branches of Cex currently have the Season 1 boxset in stock for £8.00.

    Coy and Vance were just doing what any actor who has the opportunity to be on a hit TV show would have done. they took the job they did not take john or tom's job, they were pawns of Warner bros. to cohere john and tom to come back to the show. it so happens that john and tom had a legit beef with warner bros. they were getting cheated in money due them on merchandising. as we all were. coy and Vance were brought on the show not to replace them that is impossible anyway but were brought on to make john and tom give into to warner' bros. demands. it was hard for the new guys as the fans resented their dressing and acting like john and tom they were just reading the scripts that were originally written for tom and john it was not their choice to change the charterers. I hope fans understand coy and Vance were pawns and needed the work. who can blame them i sure don't. Rosco

    Here's another update! I painted the interior and used embossing powder for the carpeting. The interior is painted Tamiya XF-59 Desert Yellow. The dashboard and speaker tray are painted Testors Acryl Leather with a few drops of white added. The center console is painted to look like wood although it doesn't show too well in the pictures. I painted Testors Acryl Leather over Testors Flat White with some Radone Tan added. I used BMF(Bare Metal Foil) on the door handles and trim. The chassis is done. Since it's a snap kit with molded in exhaust and drivetrain, I just painted it Testors Acryl Aircraft Interior Black. The Exhaust and drive shaft are brush painted with Citadel Leadbelcher. The engine oil pan is brush painted Testors International Orange and the transmission is Tamiya XF-16 Flat Aluminum. The gas tank was airbrushed with Tamiya XF-56 Metallic Grey. The body was clear coated with Gunze Mr. Super Clear and polished. I have to apply BMF to the moldings and install the windows.

    He once had Black TIlly II, the '65(ish) Mustang, flat black, with the majorly souped-up engine, sitting there ready when Jesse ended up needing it to race Boss's challenge.

    This is another one of my models completed the year before. Tough to find Ford pickups of the proper timeframe, and I found an old one on Ebay. In fact, it still had it's original purchase receipt in the box, dated 18 January 1975, almost four years to the day before the series started! So, all throughout my childhood watching the series every Friday night, this kit was sitting somewhere in someone's closet waiting for a 40-something year old me to purchase it and build decades later. I tend to think like that; if you don't, then y'all don't mind me..... Major bodywork had to be done; the kit depicted a vehicle with lots of side trim whereas Jesse's had none. This had to be ground away with a roto-tool, then sanded and touched up. Here are photos depicting all I've just mentioned:

    Well y'all, due to the recent Photobucket revolution, I'm re-posting the photos of this build. After these I'll post some of the in-progress shots since this was a somewhat complicated build, not out-of-the-box by any means.

    I nearly forgot Germany where it's called 'Ein Duke Kommt Selten Allein', literally 'A Duke Rarely Comes Alone' (again, Google just translates it as 'Dukes of Hazzard'). I can't find a German intro/theme tune, so I'm guessing they use the one with Waylon.

    Map of Hazzard County

    I found this map in 'Duke vs. Duke' from season 3. Bo is showing Daisy which route he'll use in the race on Luke's map. In the episode the map appears upside-down, so the first thing I did was rotate it. It didn't take long to realise that the map looked familiar. It looks like a copy of the same map used in 'Double Dukes', but with different hand written names (you can see that map a few posts back where I identified Redding, CA. as the real Colonial City). On the right is what looks like 'Drexel County', which is a new one to me. Other names that are readable are Shelby Road, Chalk Hill, Partridge? Farm, (unclear) Indian Caves, (unclear) Gulch and (unclear) Practice Area. Maybe someone with better eyes than me can identify some more. Here's the real map of where California meets Oregon and Nevada. You can see it for yourself on Google Maps. In the top map Bo's finger would be about halfway between the two 139s at the bottom of this map.

    Swamp Molly's Pickup

    This is the other project I started around the same time as Daisy's Jeep. It's Swamp Molly's 1946 Chevrolet 1/2 ton pickup. The same truck also appeared (slightly more distressed) a few episodes later in 'Deputy Dukes'. I could continue adding rust and primer well into the new year, but I've decided to call it finished . I still love muscle cars, but I've started to really like these curvy pickups from the '40s and '50s. I'm thinking of doing a restored version of this one, so watch this space .

    Swamp Molly's Pickup

    The parts have arrived, and the painting's done. Here's my restored version of Swamp Molly's pickup. I decided to go for a bright red finish with whitewall tires and a wooden enclosure around the bed. I also took a bit of artistic license by assuming that it originally belonged to Rhuebottom's. These old trucks clean up pretty well .

    I was looking forward to the first F1 race of the season tomorrow. It seems that fans were already at the gates of the track when they cancelled it yesterday. Nearly all sporting events are off over here, although my brother still got to see a lower league soccer match in the UK today.

    Coronavirus

    I think it's overblown too but on the other hand....we took my mom to a hospital in Cleveland last week and my wife and I both got sick with lung issues Sunday. We are still sick. We learned yesterday that it is now in Cleveland. If we can get into our doctor tomorrow we will. It's probably nothing but you never can tell. Tonight the NBA announced they are suspending the season and Tom Hanks and his wife announced they have it.
