You have done an excellent job. That truck is nice. My favorite body style of the Chevy trucks and the 2 door looks perfect!

Thanks alot guys.

I'm pleased to have a 1970 Chevy Blazer in the pack now.
Just getting a few more bits done on the interior.

Made up the dash yesterday and got it stuck in place, as well as a few little things to fill the bed up a bit. Just some normal stuff like a couple carboard boxes, toolbox and some rope. Its always tricky tryna get good pics of the interior but heres a couple looking in. The first is through the dusty back window, the 2nd looking in the passenger side.






I got the body all mounted to the chassis too. Here's a pic to kinda show how i do it. Just building up little blocks on the body to fit between the frame rails and cross pieces. I make it all fit in really snug so i don't need to use attachment things like velcro, magnets or clips. Friction holds it on good enough.




So, there's always more evolving to do but i think its pretty much done for now.

Thanks for watching the build guys, first ride video coming soon.

I really like the picture through the back window!
If I was carving works of art like these, I'd never let them go.

Thank guys.

I took the Blazer out for its first ride today and shot some video too. Though i have two other bodies that fit this chassis, this one rides different with more weight in the rear. The others feel slightly front heavy but this one is quite balanced. Really nice roll to it too. I never weight my wheels so the weight of the truck stays up in the middle, i love watching it ride.

Anyhow, hope you dig the vid.

I'm in awe. It's truly a scale rig when the rubber hits the trail and it looks AND performs like a 1:1. Fantastic. Brings me back to the 80's when my best bud had a green K5 just like this. Loved that truck! Great vid and the cat rules. Mine just freaks out when I get the RC trucks out.

That video was just incredible! It looked so real...with some sound dubbed in, of an out of tune V8 or exhaust leak, it would be impossible to distinguish from a 1:1. You're Bronco is still my fav but this one is a close 2nd only because it's a Chevy and not for the details or the scaleness of it. Just awesome HQ...!!!

Love the truck and the vid. You have the best driving area. You blow my mind on what you can do with a piece of wood.

Thanks guys. I really appreciate the nice words.



Here's a few new action shots of the Blazer out in the trails.









I really like the look of those bigger modded flatirons, but i got some new RC4WD mud countrys and tried them on.
I think they look pretty good on there. More stock like but tough and still lifted a bit.
Got an exhaust pipe now too.









I find this last one looks like a magazine ad or brochure. Ha.
Little trucks are fun eh?
