  1. Sorry I'm late to the party here myself, but that write-up Roger did made my head so big, I couldn't get through the door to the next room where the computer is!

     

    But seriously: I appreciate the love, and I appreciate the comradery here even more.  Dukes fans are nothing but the finest people, so this is always a welcoming place to 'set a spell' and chew the fat.

    Even at this early stage, the model's looking great. Keep us posted with updates. It looks like it's a smaller scale compared to your model of Cooter's.

    Much appreciated!

    Yes, this is half the scale of my garage and Boar's Nest models.  Those were 1/2"=1' (1/24 in the familiar model kit scale).  This mockup is 1/4"=1' (1/48 in model kit scale).

  3. This is the beginning of a larger project- basically a model of a model.  This is to figure out if this scale is good for the eventual project to see if its big enough, etc., but its fun to see Hazzard Square in 3 dimensions even in this monotone form!   To answer the inevitable question, its made from printed designes mounted to foam core and assembled with hot glue.

  4. October and Fall in general is 'Dukes' season to me for some reason.  I think its because that's typically the time of year we would venture up to the Smokey Mountains area, which means trips to Cooter's and just being in the deep south region ('Hazzard country').  The last few years working for Ben Jones at all the Cooter's stores this time of year has just added to that feeling!

  5. Here is the current state of things at the end of October- Its really starting to look like the Hazzard garage we know.  Big thanks for my awesome team: My wife Dawn (who it turns out is a great scenic painter), Walter (who it turns out is a great carpenter and electrician!), and Joe, Nelu, and Shannon who keep the store running while we tear it apart, and scare children with the construction noise!  Its a particular challenge working around the General Lee- we have to be very careful swinging ladders, lumber, and paint around it.
