1972 Chevy Blazer Custom


Recommended Posts

Just finished my new project: An AMT 1972 Chevy Blazer Custom. Called it „The Hellblazer“

Built from a used and unfinished kit I got from eBay for a good price:

To make it a little bit hotter I made a couple of changes: Suspension was lowered as much as possible and I used Foose Nitrous II wheels from Scale Production. Shaved the body, smoothed the tail gate and molded the bumpers. Scratch built the grill, taillights and exhaust tips through the rear bumper. Interior features a resin skull, flamed steering wheel from MCG, a dashboard-mounted LCD monitor, a Stereo system and 2006 Camaro seats. The V8- engine came from the Camaro as well. Flames were painted with Lazy Modeler paint masks.

Nice save! You nailed that "Truckin' Magazine" circa early 2000s look :D The tribal flame masks worked well with the 2-tone, and the flamed steering wheel (a feature I'd normally cringe at) is perfect for this style and era...ties it all together! I like the wheels too. Well done turning that pile of parts into such a slick ride.
