The Boar's Nest in 1/25 scale


Recommended Posts

Here we go again!  After Cooter's Garage, the next natural place to stop in Hazzard is the Boar's Nest.

Like the garage, this is such an iconic location that I had to do this one the same way- detailed inside and out.  I'll keep posting more as things are completed.

Thanks folks- as usual I have to give a shout-out and 'yeehaw' to HossC for his help on this as well.  I'm stealing (with permission I guess!) his sign art.  His take on the building dimensions and details was also very helpful.  Yea, I could do it myself but I certainly couldn't do it better and why reinvent the wheel!  It also adds another level of satisfaction to pull in the help of the HNet community on these projects.

At the moment I'm concentrating on finishing the outside of the BN before I 'go back inside' to decorate.  

Wow, this place went through a lot of changes over the years.  In addition to Boss' office switching sides of the building (reflecting a change in the interior sets), all the outside details move constantly.  The outside lights, number of hubcaps, the type and location of the gas pumps, number and location of the planters, and loading zone signs.  And this isn't even counting the differences in the Georgia and Hollywood buildings!

So, instead of trying to match a particular configuration or season, I'm picking my favorite features seen throughout the series.  The funny thing is I don't think anyone else (except maybe HossC!) will know the difference!

One of my hobbies is model trains, and I've learned from that that some people as a hobby actually do 'reinvent the wheel' for fun.

There's quite a lot of differences. I wouldn't notice different hubcabs but beside the office switching sides the whole bar switched sides. Also the poles are gone, sometimes a jukebox or pinball machine. Also double doors only just once there, and in the last episode a backstage for the podium.

Irrelevant but it was used in an episode where the back was shown and it was a sawmill. also it was used in a Knight rider epsidoe as well as some other stuff from the dukes set.
