After several years of scratchbuilding, finally finished! Pretty much everything after the cab is scratchbuilt, plus the entire chassis was rebuilt and the wheel base extended.  Only complaint is the door decals are too big, but they're all I could find in years of looking. The build thread is here: http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/160025-hazzard-tow-truck/

Hi Andrew, this turned out fantastic!  Very nice weathering and detailing throughout. I followed along on the WIP thread and it is impressive how much work went into this. Awesome build!!

Cheers, Steve

Excellent re creation of the real thing! This is what AMT- MPC should have given us back in the day! Has all the period goodies in all the right places!

Great looking build. I enjoyed watching your build and the research you went thru for this one. Very realistic looking finishes.

I don't know how many hours you have invested in this project but the result is nothing short of spectacular!  Your dedication to the subject and your hard work is proof that great things can be accomplished when you are passionate and this qualifier obviously applies to your character traits!   I take my hat off to you sir! 👌

You mentioned to me in a reply on your WIP that you made the General Lee, did you make a thread of this on the forum?  I would be interested to see it if this is the case.

Thank you everyone for the wonderfully kind comments! I've been enjoying looking at several in here as well, y'all are rich in imagination and talent!

AMFan, here's the completed thread of my GLee, with the engine bay I went a little crazy on: http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/125697-my-ultimate-general-lee-in-125/?tab=comments#comment-1825592

Definitely the nicest and best built tow truck I have ever seen!   Your version of General Lee is also great sir, you are a very talented builder! 👍
