A nice start to 2021 for ACME, new is the 1972 Chevrolet Blazer K/5 in 1:18 scale. Lots of goodness here, diecast exterior, full access and some neat features on the interior side, plus a removable roof! This model is due in June 2021. Production is limited to about 1000 pieces. Please contact our site sponsors to pre-order yours!
Details look much nicer than previous samples showed! If this is a representation of a factory model, the tires may be a bit too big here. It also would’ve been appreciated if it had side marker lights, rather than having them painted on. All and all, no major complaints at all considering no one has made this in 1:18 yet. Sometimes, just getting one model made at all is a win for collectors.
Looks promising, but does the grille appear to have a slight “V” shape, or is it just me? The real vehicle has a flat grille which aligns flush with the headlamp bezels. And yes, the tires look comically oversized. I hope these issues are corrected before the model is released.
Note, this is a pre-production model.
Looks good enough and I,m happy this is a full featured model! But… I’m nit picking here, i don’t think there will much heating in that passenger compartment from the size of the heater hoses! Also since they’re putting huge 35 inch tires on these, why not go all the way and put some nicer rims as well? There were a lot of these older 4×4’s that had the white Jackman style steel wheels… No white letters on the trail T/As either? Good job though! I’ll get one of these!
