Here's my version of the Hazzard County Gospel Church sign. The screen grab is from 'Enos's Last Chance', but the sign can be seen in other episodes. Original:

hoss, do the now opening sign for the playpen too man, ill need it as well, anyways keep em commin man, cant wait to see more, anyways ttyl thanks and peace

I had to clarify which sign knightprowl was after. I was looking for a whole separate sign rather than just the banner underneath. I've included one of the original signs to show the juxtaposition of the two together. I wish they'd used straight line above and below the text - the wiggly lines were quite fiddly.

I haven't done Rosco's re-election poster from 'One Armed Bandits' yet, but I have done the one from 'The Revenge of Hughie Hogg' in season 5. The picture of Rosco isn't exactly as it appeared in the show because I went for the best quality photo I could find that was similar. Unlike some of the recent posters I've done, these typefaces are the closest I had, rather than starting from scratch. Otherwise, it's pretty close. Here's Uncle Jesse standing next to Rosco's poster in that episode:

Here's my version:

Here's the button badge that Rosco makes everyone wear (including Uncle Jesse in the picture above). I couldn't get a clear grab of this, or the flyer below, so the text is my best guess as far as typefaces are concerned.

And here's the flyer that Flash has in her mouth near the start of the episode:

The re-election poster is available to download as a printable PDF (Adobe Acrobat) file in the Dukes of Hazzard Downloads section of HNet along with the Carnival of Thrills poster. Both are US letter size, but will print without any problem on European A4 paper. There's also 10 different Dukes themed desktop wallpapers to download.

Great! (I say sarcastically)

I come to the HazzardNet to get away from all the crazyness of the world, like politics for example, and as soon as I log in I see some advertisement for some feller running for re-election. I thought we had moderators here to keep these spammers away.

Just kidding...nice job Hoss!

I know how you feel Roger - Ireland is in the process of electing a new president (that's our head of state, we also have a Taoiseach who's head of the government) so our lampposts are covered in posters and our mailboxes are full of political junk. That said, here's another political poster:

I hope this is the one you wanted, knightprowl - the Rosco poster from 'One Armed Bandits' you've been asking for.

As with the last one, I've substituted a different photo as I couldn't find this one at any resolution. The text is all done from scratch though.

I originally posted screengrabs of these billboards here. I've now done my own versions. First is the unfinished 'Hazzard Safety Week' poster from 'Goodbye General Lee'. Just to annoy me, the 'Drive Carefully' text is not quite the same as the last one I did, but I had to make most of it into outlines anyway!. I wonder why the painter didn't finish the black text before starting the red.

This is Lulu's billboard from 'Share and Share Alike'. I couldn't get a better picture of Lulu for this one, so I had to tweak the one from the screengrab.

Knightprowl, I edited down your post a bit. Please understand, I appreciate your rant on the current stat of affairs of the country and all but we like to keep HNet as apolitical as possible 'k?

Also since this thread is for Hoss to post his renditions of the various signs of Hazzard, I didn't want to see it get hijacked into a political tit for tat. Hope you understand.

Thanks, MaryAnne. Yes, we try to keep politics off of HazzardNet because we like it to be a place for us to escape all the bad crap going on in the world.

I kinda started it with my smarmy little comment, my apologies as well. There's a lot of dry tinder laying around on those subjects these days; tough times will do that.

ANYHOW! Back to the usual shenanigans. Hoss, I got another idea/request for Hazzard signs. In the early eps, maybe 1st season, there were some fun signs inside of the Boar's Nest. I think one was the "Boom Boom Room" ? I gotta re-watch and figure it out.

I've got a basement bar in my house (though I don't drink that much, the bar came with the house) and I'm thinking of decorating it ala Boar's Nest. Since I got the poles in the middle of the floor too and all that. (they hold up the house, I'd better keep 'em.)

I can't be the only nut on the planet who wants to make a basement bar Boar's Nest (say that five times fast) so any resources you have to offer would be an epic contribution to the fandom, adding to your already considerable fame.

The Boar's Nest sign is already done (back on page 1 of this thread), but I can have a look at the others. Either let me know the episodes and rough times they appear, or send me some screengrabs and I'll see what I can do.

Let's hope that this sign proves less controversial than the last :). It's the sign from the studio that the Dukes visit in 'The Dukes in Hollywood' in season 7. I thought I might get a break here because the 'Studios' text looks like a font called Souvenir, but it wasn't to be.

hey man thanks for those, but what about the other billboards shown in the show?

I'd forgotten about this one until I found that I had a screengrab of it the other day. If I recall correctly it's from 'Nothin' But the Truth' in season 4. The painter was just starting to outline the blue text when Boss grabbed the brush to change "CAN" to "CAN'T".

The 'Boom Boom Room' sign seems to appear well past the 1st season. I've just gone for a closest font match as I haven't managed to see it close up. The one in the Boar's Nest is more distressed than this.

Here's another sign from the Boar's Nest that I spied in the background. I think this may be a stock sign because I saw it in the background of a bar scene in 'The Fall Guy' the other day (it was the episode 'Eight Ball' from season 2 which guest starred Tony Curtis). Again, closest match font used.
