    Hmmm... since the Blazer and '84 pickup are both 1:25, the front clips could be cut and grafted to one another. I've got a set of 1:25 scale 44" Boggers that are just begging to be mounted, and how cool would it be to have a model of my '87 Blazer?! Thoughts are brewing in my head... good thing my dad used to build award winning models! :D

    Hmm, I have a '75 K5 with an '88 front clip that has the over/under headlights. The front clip swap on the models sounds interesting! :cool1:

    Am I blind? I can't find the K5 anywhere, just the trucks.

    It's in the snap-together section. I know, I was stumped at first too. :D

    Looking at the blue shortbed, .. I'd have to say that sucker looks to be made from the old "Fall Guy" truck model. Some slight differences, but not many.

    I figured it was, but wasn't sure about the tire tread. The wheels look to be the same, as well as the roll bar, grill guard etc. The K5 looks great, but I could do without the sunroof. They're all pretty sweet though. :thumb:

    Yeah, I'd fill in the sunroof and the holes for the lights on the roof and the big antenna whip hanging off the side. This would be a nice way to get back into scale models...

    I have this one and plan to bash it with white one and the 1984 parts to get as close to 1987 I can. Finally get to use that dermal I bought my father!

    :eek1: Where did you find that?!?! :bow: Is that a 1:25 scale too? Because I thought a lot of the Monograms were 1:24, which could cause some issues when grafting kits together. Regardless, I want one of those! I'm so jealous now... :p:
