Gmc syclone?

23 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I've been working on this project for a year or two now it started life as a gmc syclone but has turned into this crazy project... Body dropped, chopped top and I laid the A pillar back to keep a nice shape to the side windows, custom phantom grille, scratch built front bumper, shaved everything, door handles windshield whipers, gas door, tail lights, tailgate.. I added a sunroof, custom cut the hood and molded the rest of the hood into the body.. As for the chassis, it's sorta stock besides the back half which is custom tubed with a scratch build independent rear axle.. I just got back into this project after a few month brake from model building.. I hope to have it done in the next few months...

That looks great! I will definitely have to follow this build. I have a 1/20th S-10 that I've customized, and this will give me inspiration to finish it! Keep going, You're doing awesome!!!

Nice work. That, and the S-10 sister kits, is a fun kit to build/modify.

Here's my take, not to hijack your thread or anything. syclone4.png

Not much for updates.. I got the body wet sanded and another coat of primer on it I hope to have it painted this weekend. As for any other updates, I'm building door panels or door cards depending what side of the world your reading this from I hope to start working more on the interior this weekend sometime between coats of paint..

You should try to make a bed floor out of clear plastic. That would be a cool idea I think!

I've thought about that if I decide to do that I can always use the piece I've made as a templet.. I'm trying to find a tailgate with the embossed Chevrolet or gmc in it so I can mold it into this kit some where..

Started building the scratch built firewall with tubs for the front tires, I have a little more work to do to that.. Also started on the upper and lower control arm, since this kit didn't come with them. I think it might of been 4 wheel drive?

Got alittle more done on this never ending project haha... Thanks to pharoah for hooking me up with a chevy tailgate that I molded into the rear of the truck. I hope to have the front suspension done today and maybe be alittle closer to paint.

What primer did you use? Tailgate looks great...

We'll I didn't really use primer and the tailgate area. I ran out, so what you see there is a dusting of flat white and flat black spray paint.

That was the first thought that popped into my mind when I saw the picture of the removal bed section, it should be clear, and a bow-tie shaped rear window

Also started on the upper and lower control arm, since this kit didn't come with them. I think it might of been 4 wheel drive?

The Syclone and Typhoon were AWD

Awesome build btw. man are you giving me ideas, now i have to find some of those kits. i will start with the 1/20 lindberg syclone that i have.

VCG resins is working on a mold for the S-10 blazer/S-15 Jimmy body, that opens up the mod options too.

I really like those blazers.. I'm feeling like maybe grabbing one of those body's and not using the s10 body..
