First Generation Chevy S10 Blazer???
Posted by Anonymous on Saturday, September 17, 2005 9:24 AM
Good morning, I have been wanting to build a first generation Chevy S10 Blazer 1/25 model kit for a long time...but unfortunately I've had hell trying to find oneSad

Does anyone know if anyone has produced a first generation Chevy S10 Blazer kit??? How about a resin interior and body kit??

Thanks for any and all help,

Brian

None of the model companies has made a 1st gen S-10 Blazer, and as far as I know, there are no resins either. But it should be fairly easy to convert Revell's '92 S-10 into a blazer, as long as you are good at working with putty! Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

About 6 months ago I asked on another forum, and was told that there was a company at one time that did produce a resin Blazer kit.......but it had been long out of production.

Do you know when that Revell kit was produced? The only first gen S10 truck I've ever found was a 1/20th scale kit I believe......

The resin bodies are still out there...but you have to pay for them. I forget the name of the company that produced them, but I know they're long since out of business. Ebay would be your best bet of finding one. Here's a photo of mine, which is one its way to becoming a GMC Typhoon:

Now that is perfect! I've been randomly searching Ebay off and on for one for a while.....but I haven't found any just yet.

Converting a regular cab to Blazer would be a bit of a pain.......fabricating not only the rear section...but also a convincing interior tub........I know it could be done.....but hell, I don't feel like spending the time to do it...lol

Yeah, when I bought this one it was already built up. Which was cool, 'cuz I got the resin body, resin interior tub and resin frame along with it. All for a whopping $10! Unfortunately the market on these has gone up and now they're a bit more expensive. If I could find a good local guy to make a mold of this one for me I'd reproduce the body in resin myself.

Crap, $10? What a STEAL! I know a few reputable resin casters....but most of them resin cast HO scale slot car bodies. Casting something this large when compared to an HO car would be a bit challenging perhaps......although I'm sure not difficult for and experienced caster.

My local Hobby Lobby just now started carrying resin casting supplies in the model car section (frickin' finally,lol) Tongue and I've been wanting to pick up a kiit to try my hand at it. Casting a model car body can't be that difficult.....it'll just take a bunch of sillicone for the mold.......and a GOOD mold....which might be a bit tricky.
