It's been busy here at Montana Diecast the last few days. Here is a a 1983 Chevy Blazer project I am working on customizing. I found two of these the other day, and thought I would give one a little custom detailing. The other one I will keep stock for my collection.
Here it is in the Western Montana Speed Shop. Here it is in the process of being taken apart. This will be a complete body off project. It will be getting a new interior, new paint, etc. Hey check out that lifted Batmobile in bay 2! I will have to do a blog post on that in the near future.
Here is the Chevy Blazer with a new red paint job. No interior yet, and we have the all glass and roof rack still to install. As you can see in this photo, we have a few other things going on in the shop today as well. Lets take a closer look at the blazer then we will look at those other projects.
We have been putting the little 4x4 Dodge A100 to work picking up supplies. Here we have a good supply of Zerex anti freeze, along with some tires and Hooker headers being unloaded.
This is a new 4x4 project. A nice 1979 Dodge pickup is getting a lift and new tires. Here the tires are just sitting in place. We still need to install the lift kit and build new axles.
And last but not least, this Hot Wheels Jaded has a fresh coat of purple, and is having the interior put back in. The green tires will be swapped out, and then this will get decals. This car will get the name Plum Crazy when it gets the decals added.
You may have noticed we got the garage doors installed in the shop. They can be open or closed. You can see more about how they were built in my video on my youtube channel. Building shop / Garage Doors for my 1/64 Dicast Cars and Trucks
Thanks for stopping by Montana Diecast. Remember to check out our Facebook page and Youtube Channel..
Welcome to my blog. I started this to have a place to share some pictures and videos of some of my custom diecast cars, trucks, and diorama stuff. Most of my stuff is 1/64 scale. Most of my vehicles are Hot Wheels and Matchbox. I do have a few other brands and I am sure over time I will get a more diverse collection. Well, enough talk for now. Let's look at some cars. Here is a Matchbox Lamborghini lm002 I recently finished.
No tire swap on this one. I never even took it apart. I just cracked it open and started adding some detail. The light bar on top is built from scratch.
Items in the back were added. The cooler and gas can are made from putty. The tool box and red drum gas can were cut from other doner vehicles.
I detailed a few things with paint, and added a black wash to highlight the grill and body lines, etc. Then I added the mud. Not the most detailed by any means, just a quick fun little project. Sometimes it's nice to just do a quick easy one.
