The General Lee – 1/16 Scale Model Kit – YEEEE HAWWW


Hows it going eh?  I appreciate ya stopping by to check out THE GENERAL LEE.

If you were anything like me as a kid watching The Dukes of Hazzard was what you did on a Friday night right after watching The Incredible Hulk and you didn’t miss it because you loved it.

And what wasn’t their to love.  Muscle cars, high-speed chases, insane jumps and crashes, Daisy, bows with explosive tipped arrows and  lets not forget all the life lessons we all learned from Uncle Jessie..it was the 80’s nuff said.

After the episode would end, you couldn’t wait for the next Friday to arrive to see the next episode.  You would talk with your friends about the episode when you went back to school the following Monday.  You probably had the Dukes die-cast cars, or Dukes bed sheets, or t-shirts, or lunch boxes or backpacks and I know some of you probably had a poster of The General Lee on your bedroom wall. (Maybe a poster of Daisy Duke mmmm.. sorry zoned out).

I’m 42 years old and I still love The Dukes Of Hazzard, my friends still love it and many of the Dads I know watch The Dukes of Hazzard with their kids all the time.  Parenting done right in my opinion lol. Truth is the only thing that does make me sad when I think about the show is all the Dodge Chargers of which there were hundreds that gave their lives to provide us with all the amazing eye candy we still love to this day.

So naturally after re-embracing my inner nerd again its only natural that I had to buy this beautiful 1/16 Scale General Lee when I saw it in the local hobby store. (I have been known to make impulsive purchases when shopping and god knows this is the only General Lee I will ever be able to afford).

Below are some of the pics of the final build, I hope you enjoy.

Peace!
