Tamiya Blazing blazer restoration

Recommended Posts

This is my second Blazing Blazer restoration. It was very bad shape blazer with front damage. But after some work i solved it out. So show you few photos of my work. My question is what color you would chose for the car? I am thinking of the box art - black. Thank you!

Thank you Champ85. I am thinking to make it ts40 collor, but still thinking. I need to make the roof panels still, they need a lot of work. Today had some fun with my Rough rider.

Looks like you had great fun I wish they had a turning circle like that though my sandscorcher takes the whole road to turn around 😄

I was lucky there was ice under the snow, Rough rider makes big circle turning around usually, but i got used to that!

Amazing work! Makes me want to buy a Blazer. What kind of primer did you use ? Not Tamiya I guess.

Hello all, thank you Blissard, yes i was using tamiya primer too, well, i had to use a lot of sanding, priming and sanding, to get it nice shape. Main primer was made in poland. Spray putty, - it helps to close all the repair and damage well!

No chassis photo, no restoration there.
