  1. I'm with Roger- 'Strange Visitor' is really hard to watch. That and 'Robot P Coltrane'. Although I'll admit I've thought of making a model of the robot. M
  2. I agree roger this is certainly a cozy place. It's probably better for me there isn't more activity here or is spend a lot more time on it when I should be working!
  3. Or somebody tricked a local kid into whitewashing the whole building.
  4. I'd like to see more activity here too- I wasn't around when it was super busy, but it does seem that it is slower than it used to be even from a couple years ago. I wish we could all get together in one room for a weekend and talk Dukes stuff. I kind live in Hazzard in my mind most days! So for the sake of discussion, what would you like to talk about? Mark
  5. We're keepin the lights on over here at the garage! Untitled by mommydawn2000, on Flickr
  6. The 'Rhuebottoms' set of buildings is coming along- almost ready to start painting. I think this will add some much needed 'context' to Cooter's garage and help to create that 'small town' setting. Untitled by mommydawn2000, on Flickr​
  7. Since enough is never enough, I'm moving on down the road and creating the buildings directly adjacent to the garage- Rhuebottoms General Store and O'Connor's Paint Supply. Unlike the garage set, these buildings were just facades with very little depth. In fact, O'Connor's Paint Supply was just a front wall attached on one side to a telephone pole type post for stability. For my model, I'm treating the buildings as 'real' and completing the backs- we saw the back door of Rhuebottoms at least once (using a generic metal shed wall someplace on the Warner lot), so I'll match that. We did see the inside of Rhuebottoms store a couple times (as well as the store room where Boss was stashing stolen fur coats), but I won't be adding interior details like I did with the garage. These buildings are just to add 'atmosphere' next to the garage and provide additional locations for some more model cars, trucks, and my Rhuebottoms delivery van. I'm using HossC's excellent drawings as my starting point! Untitled by mommydawn2000, on Flickr​ blueline by mommydawn2000, on Flickr​
  8. Thanks Dixie- always a pleasure to meet another Davenport! I'm going to get some more pics up soon in the model thread now that its 'complete' (at least complete for now until I add to the model with other buildings). Mark
  9. Its not earth-shattering, but it meant a lot to me. The voting was done by the participants and spectators at the show, so it meant something to come from fellow modelers. I want to think everyone here for the encouragment during this project. Thanks for letting me share!
  10. So this is what happened at the Hazzard Garage this past weekend... Untitled by mommydawn2000, on Flickr Untitled by mommydawn2000, on Flickr Untitled by mommydawn2000, on Flickr
  11. The Cooter on the hood is a combination of parts from different 1/25 figures; moslty meant to be Nascar crew and mechanics (plus a little sculpting with a sharp Exacto). M
  12. I'm ashamed to say I didn't catch this- I knew 'Little Enos' and 'Big Enos' rolled off the tongue too easily. I'm clearly not firing all cylinders lately. Ben wasn't in Gatlinburg this time. It seems he's had to restrict his activities a little lately by doctor's orders. Mark
  13. This one is fun- little Enos in the foreground, big Enos in the background!
  14. OK, here we go! Flickr problem solved, here are some pics from the model at the Hazzard Run last weekend: Untitled by mommydawn2000, on Flickr
