Older pic with the black wheels.....
Had white paint issues. Had to come up with a different color, which I did, but it didn't go with black wheels. So I had to make new wheels and new hubs (for the Rockwells). This is the completed frame/drivetrain.......
This is my grill re-do....
Still puttzin' with the interior. Should be wrapped up soon.

Hey all. New here, but I wasn't sure where to post my intro. My name is Larry but I'm known as Big Ed.
You're not new here, you're a long-time member that just hasn't posted in awhile!
Glad you are active now, and no, we never get tired of looking at that awesome Blazer!
Post the Scout WIP pics to show more of your incredible scratchbuilding

Nick, the grill was time comsuming. I thinned the plastic behind the grill bars (tedious) with my rotary tool. I can't think of the name of the bit, but it's a ball shape with cutting edges around it (?). I thinned it to where I could almost see thru the bars. Got my "helping hands" with magnifying glass and started cutting out in between each bar. Go slow...it's worth the effort. I then cut out the headlights and parkin' lights. Found suitable clear lenses for the parkin' and headlights. I found some chrome hubcaps in the parts box and reversed 'em for bezels behind the heads. I used rectangular off-road lights (sliced & diced) for bezels behind the parkin's. The yellow lenses were changed to clear ones. Don't have an updated pic, but you'll see it in the finished pics soon, so I'll continue here. The orange "bulbs" in the parkin' lights I found at a local craft store. They're stick-on dress-up items for cell phones or whatever. Thegrill was painted with Krylon Dull Aluminum and thinned-out acrylic black craft paint flowed into the crevices. That's pretty much it. Time consuming Nick, but it's what i do.
