is the third time I have built a Dukes
of Hazzard Dodge Charger General Lee.
time, I did it more the way I wanted to rather than try
and build an exact replica of the real car.
used MRC Classic rims and tires, left out the roll bar and
did some other minor modifications and changes.
kit itself is the Revell Charger (I sanded off the vinyl
rood texture). It only has a 440, though I may build one
more of these Revell cars, but using a HEMI.
paint is Duplicolor Chevy Orange Engine paint out of a can,
simply because it was the closest shade of orange that I
wanted, and it was handy.
Revell kit is a newer mold, and thus is a better Charger
than the much older MPC offering.
under national pressure from Republicans and Conservatives
to remove the Democratic
Party's Confederate flag from view and controversy,
the Dukes of Hazzard General Lee kits are no longer beng
don't have an issue with that decision, it's fine. You don't
need a flag on the roof to build a great Dodge Charger model.
