Nailed it! Great to see someone finally do something with this great release.
Few people realize this decal scheem was an unusual FACTORY option!
It was available (similar designs) on other Shivvy vehicles as well, like the El Camino.
Hopefully JL will get on track and start producing interesting stuff again.

Waaaay better! Thanks for the original decal info Lummox, seem to recall seeing those (I didn't care for them, I never liked geometric graphics) but, great to know someone at JL is getting Chevy history right :thumbsup:. The 80's Chevelle, gag! :drunk:


A Q, does the topper come off of the Blazer?

Wow, Thanks guys for all the great comments!

Lummox, your the man! I did not know that this was a factory option. I found a picture of the real deal.

Well done, how did you lift this? Lifting diecast is always something I've tried to master
Thanks,

I remove the axles and wheels. I buy plastic tubes from Plastruct and cut them to length or you can use empty ink pen cartridges. Then I superglue them to the base of the truck after I file the the differentials down that are molded on the bases.

Hope this helps
