The Memorial Day weekend is here!

It’s the biggest racing weekend of the year with the Monaco Grand Prix, the Indianapolis 500, and the Coke 600 making a marathon of race watching for fans worldwide.  Enjoy the holiday and the racing!

But more important, please remember that Memorial Day is when we take time to remember and honor all those who serve and have served in our nation’s armed forces, especially those who have given their lives in defense of our country and of the free and civilized world.  Take time and make opportunities to thank the military people you know and their families for the sacrifices, big and small, they make daily so America can remain free and strong.  Remember that in the world today there are individuals, nations, and ideologies that want to drag us into a barbarian past and shackle us under despicable tyranny.  Our fighting men and women stand between America and her sworn enemies and, ever more so, between all that is good in the world and all that is utterly evil.  Honor them this day, especially, and every other day of the year as well.

Our warehouse will be open on Monday for walk-in customers and phone orders but no orders will ship on Monday due to the holiday.

Pioneer does it again!

We just got word from Pioneer Models that their Dukes of Hazzard General Lee Charger is close to production, and the news comes with a BIG surprise!

Pioneer P016 General Lee Charger. Preorder now!

Yep!  coming at the same time will be a Hazzard County Dodge Monaco police car!

The cop car will have good ol’ Roscoe behind the wheel and his hound dog riding shotgun.  Let the chase begin!

YEEEEEE -HAAAAAAAH!

No word yet on stock number or price for the police car but we will have it up for preorder soon.

You can bet that the Hazzard County car will be just the first in a series of movie and TV show police cars, since the Dodge Monaco was the standard police cruiser both in real life and in the movies for a long, long time.  We have it on good authority that there will also be state and city police cars from all over the US as time goes on, though no plans beyond the DOH car have been firmed up as yet.

On the way to us now

Projects in progress

McLaren M12

You may remember sometime back we showed you our project to put a 60s-vintage Aurora A-Jet 1/32 scale McLaren body on a much-modified Fly sidewinder chassis with wheels and tires from a Monogram Greenwood Corvette.  At that time it was in the primer stage.

Here’s where we are with it now:

As you can see we now have the car painted in its overall red with decals and some detail painting done. We have fabricated a set of “bigblock” injector stacks using axle spacers made for 1/24 scale commercial-track cars with 1/16″ front axles.  Still to come are a driver figure, more details including a roll bar and mirrors, more decals, additional detail painting, clear coating, and final assembly.  Rear tires are aftermarket silicones.

Super Cooper

Here’s a new one we have been working on.  This one started as a Monogram Cooper-Cobra. but we are turning it into heavily modified Cooper with flared fenders to cover wide wheels and tires from a Carrera Ferrari 512BB.

The model is intended to look like what might have resulted if somebody in the mid-60s had taken a late-production Cooper Monaco and stuffed in a big Chevrolet V8.  Of course, the car would need cooling, downforce, and wide rubber to go with all that horsepower.  A lot of cars were modified like this back then and used in pro racing, often followed by careers in SCCA club racing.  Many of these cars, the ones that survived, have been converted back to their original configurations for vintage racing.

Here’s a 3/4 front view.  Mean-looking, isn’t it?  It’s so ugly it’s beautiful.

Here we see where we are with this car and where we started.  More to come in future newsletters.
