    I found this on Tower Hobbies about 2 months ago and have been waiting patiently for it to come into stock. Now it has! I should have it next week. This is the only 2nd Gen fulltop ('73-'75) Blazer scale model I have ever found online. It's a '75.

    It's made by AMT/ERTL and I got it from Tower Hobbies. I was on an email waiting list for it. It's a plastic model that you assemble. I'm going to try and build it as close to looking like my '73 as possible. Hell I may even start a build thread for it :haha:

    There is a place up by Sweetk30 that can get old, discontinued models. I've been going there since I was a kid. Last time I was up there, he was closed! But I'll be back up there soon, wanted to ask about a 73-75. Or even a half top, could cut the top off (I know nothing about this) and make it into a 73-75.

    I used too build models all the time as a kid. I was looking at the Pick-Up model too. I bet I could get the Blazer and Pick-Up models and graft them together. Thus having a Burban. This might be the start of a new project.

    Sounds cool, but just like our actual trucks, its going to be a lot more expensive and take a lot longer that way.

    True, but I have looked everywhere and I cant find a model of the Suburban. All I can find is diecast, and they are the new 2000ish body.
