    Also posted in my build thread in Big Boyz,

    Got it autographed by Catherine Bach aka Daisy Duke, who made an appearance at the spring Turkey Rod Run here in Daytona Beach today. She was very gracious and down to earth and was more then happy to use care in signing the hood of my car. The staff that assisted her were all over my car, asking questions and taking pictures of it. Many comments were made by them, as they were familiar with the particular model and what needed to be done to correct it into a more accurate looking GL. It was a thrilling day for me to say the least. Thank you all again for your comments. take care and thanks for looking.

    Almost Mike, I'd like to get the rest of the cast someday. But I'm happy to have hers. 70's teen boys had Farrah, 80's teen boys like me had Daisy!

    Gentlemen,
    I am in no way attempting to hijack this thread, but I can offer some assistance with the many problems with this kit. I recently built the Dukes Charger and solved (for my purposes anyway) a lot of the very obvious problems with this kit. My build thread is in here, Page 6 about halfway down, titled 1/16th Dukes Charger. Please feel free to peruse the build photos and take any thing you need from them to build your car. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Good luck.

    Beautiful work Jonathan!! I built a tribute '59 Impala convertible for a very close friend about a year ago. It was one of the most rewarding model building experiences I have ever had. I see him every so often and he always comments about how much time he spends looking at it and how he never should have sold that car! Hats off to you sir.

    Good evening gents,
    Just to update you all, last weekend I brought my GL to the MassCar show in Taunton Ma. I was pleasantly surprised to earn first place in the large scale class, as well as grab one of the masters awards for best Dodge. I also got to meet and talk to Mr. "Date Code" and Mopar guru, Steve Magnante. He took great interest in my GL and spent several minutes talking car guy stuff. He was also gracious enough to autograph my build sheet. I guess he was photographing Mopar models for an upcoming issue of Redline Dodge.com. Great guy to talk to and very down to earth. So needless to say it was a fantastic day. I got many great comments on my GL and made some new friends. I also grabbed an original 70's Revell Monroe Handler Mustang from the huge vendor area. I always wanted that kit in the 70's, but didn't have the skill to build it back then.
    Unfortunately, I am having trouble loading pics from Fotki, all of the sudden, so no show pics. If I get it figured out, I'll post them. Take care all.

    Nice job Danno. I built one of these several years ago as a Mass State Police car. Nice kit despite some inaccuracies like the boss 429 and chassis. There's a website called policecarmodels.com that can provide much more accurate scale goodies for you police car projects in the future. Lights, sirens, radios etc. The owners name is Jeff. Very helpful and knowledgeable.

    Very nice Greg. Just finished up the same car a few months ago as a Mass State Police cruiser. Any more pics?

    Would love to see it on my shelf! Great scratch building on the bed.

    Gentleman,
    Thank you for you thoughtful comments on my car. After the time and effort that went into it, I certainly appreciate your comments. I apologize to those who asked, but yes, it is the 1/16th version, re-release from MPC/Round 2. I am proud to say that I have an original version still in plastic and hope to display them both together in my man cave. Thanks again.

    Jay
