I like it. Nice black finish on the Coupe. Did you use the Boyd Speedster?

Is the Blazer the 1969 AMT kit? Nice too!

I went to a "gentleman's club" because the sign said they had all the hottest models. I thought it was a hobby shop. Man, was I ever disappointed.

Thanks for the compliment guys.

The Blazer is actually the 70 (or 72...I never get my years right) fleetside from AMT. I loved the Blazer body and no one had one to offer, so I fused the bed and the body together.

The Coupie is actually the snap-tight Coupster that AMT offered. I modified the frame for the Prowler (which, by the way, fits perectly). The paint is plain old Testors black, with some Tamiya clear coat over it (its funny, on a 1/1, black is one of the hardest colors to use as it shows every inperfection, but in scale, it is one of the best paints that just lays down beautifully).

Gorgeous paint job on the coupe!!!!!! Great detail on the Blazer. Keep 'em comin'
I'm hopelessly addicted to building models. Not finishing them, just building them.

Great models. The coupe is beautiful, and the Blazer is so cool. I really like these old Blazers, and remember building one when AMT came with the Matchbox logo on the boxes. That one disappeared a lond time ago, but about a year ago, I found one assembled but not painted one that is now in my to-be-restored pile. Great one!!

Wow, more great work!
Thanks for posting those ScrappyJ. Tasteful mods, excellent job opening those doors, outstanding interiors.
Have you thought about a 1/24 custom bike on a trailer behind that Blazer, or maybe another model?

Great suggestion Mojo. I think I might have to take you up on that. What would you think...a crotch-rocket sport-bike, or a custom?

Hmmmm, one of those Airfix GP racers would be cool as a street bike. Hmmm, and I have one........wait a second.

Okay, I just ran out to the garage and checked the trailer in the '37 Ford. It's a bit short, but gives all the right hardware to make a nice motorcycle trailer.

That's TopsThumbs Up DJ! That Blazer looks like it's got some Corvette about it in the back end. Looks great though, love the blue too.

Thanks Brad and Billz.

The idea came from a red one that I'd seen on one of the magazines, but I wanted mine to be different...and since I'm somewhat of a chevy fan, I thought I would add some styling cues from the beloved vette. T

here is actually a blazer top that I vaccum-formed, but don't show it much. I'll take some pics. w/blaser top and post on FOTKI. I also made a hard-top cover, but that never got painted as it looked a little wierd.
