Its done. The interior was flocked, photo etch gauges were used, hat pins were used for shifters and the cage made from styrene tube. The body was detailed with Bare Metal Foil and a rear bumper was made from more tube. The engine has machine aluminum pulleys and magneto, plug wires, fuel lines,and heater hoses. I made the tall air cleaner from Detail Master screen. I added a radiater and overflow, a master cylinder with brake lines. The engine bay in this kit was very sparce, so if you see it I added it. The exhaust was made from solder with SuperTrapp muflers from Machined Aluminum Specialtys.

Very nice build, nice details! This is what a Blazer should be instead of the luxury SUV they are now !

Oh, man! I don't even build 4x4s, but I want to now. Very cool! Clean too.

Well done. I've got a box stock built '72 Blazer I built a couple years ago, maybe it's time for an upgrade. B)
