1/24 Chevy and GMC grilles for Revell/Monogram


Recommended Posts

Hi fellow modelers,

a long time project is finally done. I designed grilles for the 1/24 scale kits of the Chevy Blazer and the GMC Pickups from Monogram and Revell.

I did three model years for both and they are now available at my shapeways shop. https://www.shapeways.com/shops/ra-sti-acute-s-scale-accessories

Here some pics of the painted test prints I ordered to make sure they´ll fit.

They are all open and made out of six seperate parts (grill housing, grill insert, headlight lenses and turn signal lenses). I added a seperate lens of each if one gets broken or lost.

Best regards, Rico

Those look nice! You should consider doing various grilles for the AMT/MPC '84 GMC "Deserter" kit also. A Chevy tailgate and front bumper without turn signals would also be nice to have. Another idea: since Round2 is releasing the '72 Chevy pickup, a correct grille plus the '69-'70 grille.

Thank you guys. Ideas are always welcome although my spare time is still very limited and many requests are left to fullfil.

On the other hand I want to give it a try and take part on the CBR to build and finish at least one model kit this year. It´s been a very long time since my last finished build.

Hey I am looking to design one of my truck. But I have a 1991 GMC suburban which is still the squarebody but the front end was redesigned. Anybody know where I can get one for that truck?

Ryan at Z-force was supposed to be working on one in 1/25 but I don't know if he got it finished  or not.

Hi Rico, just checked out your grilles on Shapeways. Fantastic work!  I am in the process of gathering parts to build a friends late fathers 77 Scottsdale. Funny, I was just about to start cutting the center out of the grill due to the truck having a hand made tube grill insert. Any chance you would make a tube grill insert for these Chevy/ GMC grills in the future? That would be awesome! IMHO!

Don’t remember when, but I ordered his ‘72 to ‘78 Dodge truck hood and his ‘77/‘78 Dodge truck grille as well. I’m really happy with what I got and will not posting pictures of it, when I start working on my Monogram Ramcharger.

This is the hood and grille I got from him. I cut the doors to be for doors meant for a ‘74.

Its kind of funny how things go. I am the one that asked Rico to design the hood and grill for the Ramcharger/Trailduster a few years ago. I hated the 80 grill/hood and wanted something different and had no way of doing it myself. Several years later and I am designing and selling stuff myself. 

Rico does awesome work and I am very thankful for his efforts in making these great grills and hoods. He also does other cool stuff for other kits. 

 @camaro69  If you want to work on the Chevy truck grills, go for it. I know you can do a great job on them, and create a great product. I am not sure how soon I will get to them.
