  1. Here’s John’s website with all the kits he offers and prices. https://redlineresins.com/
  2. You can contact John thru his profile on Facebook.
  3. The Blazer kit includes the body, hood (he gave me a regular hood and a cowl hood) Blazer top, chassis, dash, firewall, two different front bumpers, a rear bumper, grill, radiator core support, interior bucket and seats. The casting are ok, I’ve seen better but these are easily workable. Finish is smooth for the most part. There are some light scratches on the cowl hood but everything else looks good. It’s designed to be used with the MPC Fall Guy GMC. The chassis is the chassis from the Fall Guy kit, I think he just shortened it a little.
  4. Hi all, I’m in need of the two lower body panels that glue to the sides of the cab in the Revell GMC Syclone Kit. They can be black or white. I need both sides.
  5. I got my two kits today (the 84 K5 Blazer and extended cab S10). They come wrapped in bubble wrap and the smaller parts are in Zip Lock bags. No kit boxes for them. They’re not bad. The shipping was fast! Had them in a few days. The parts will require cleanup. All voids have a thin layer of flash that will need to be removed, there are some light scratches on the cowl hoods from the body work on the master but very minor. Some parts need a little work to fit better such as the hoods and the Blazer top but it’s minor. Not a problem for any skilled model builder. Finish on the bodies is smooth but not glossy. Overall I’m very happy with them! To my knowledge, nobody else currently produces either of these kits. (Pics from John’s EBay auctions)

  7. I went ahead and bought the 84 K5 Blazer kit and the S10 extended cab kit. I’ll leave a review when I get them. I appreciate everyone’s help!
  8. 1975 Duster ProMod- scratchbuilt

    Wow, awesome work!
  9. Just wondering if anyone has bought any of the resin car or truck body kits from John Wiley (Redlinerestorations on EBay). I’m just just curious about the quality, fit and finish.
  10. The cab or the GMC grille?
  11. Wood Trailer Decking Question

    For my ERTL Great Dane flatbed build, I cut the fake plastic wood out and then had a guy cut and print the deck pieces on a thin sheet of balsa wood. All the printed screw heads reside directly above each bed crossmember.
  12. 1982 Trans Am. 80’s style

    Very cool!
  13. Very sorry to say that Damon Montague passed away this morning. I was fortunate to have him here in my home years ago. The first guy to put my resin wheels on his build.
  14. I reposted this news on a model truck group on Facebook. Some people on there are thinking that this is just an April fools joke. I sure hope it’s not!
  15. Hello all, does anyone know if this Chevy/GMC four door cab and the GMC grill (on front of pro street pickup in pic) are still being offered by anyone?
