This is a truly original condition Blazing Blazer historically owned by thelegos before eventually finding its way to me. Roger tells me that it was one of the best original condition Blazers he owned - thanks Roger it's nice to know some of this cars history.
I could not believe the size of this car when it arrived and it's taken up quite some space in my rather small study!.
Body is in great condition with no damage, paintwork is all original and that's the way I'm keeping it.
Car is fully operational and came with a nice Acoms AP-427 that you can see in the last picture. The tyres are new and fitted by thelegos. The car does have some minor rust pitting on the rear bumper and a small piece of clear tape has been placed over the front body hole to protect the body clip from scratching the paint - think this however adds great originality to the car so again I'll leave it there.
Overall this car is in fantastic shape for its age. The metalwork has not been polished or stripped and has held up extremely well for its 30 or so years.
I'm really pleased to have this guy in my collection and I hope you like it as much as I do.

Update: Got me a new driver- stunning paint-job (by my buddy Matt Chovan over in the US) and fits in better IMO with the body paint-job and decals - hope you like

Thanks for the great comments guys - Great to look through all of your showrooms and especially cool to see some fab sister Blazers in the showrooms of RallyBaz, Challenger-RT, Slimmy and of course the famous J-man alloy roof (have to get me another Blazer to fit one of those John!!). Thanks again

Buddy, this one is a real score. Its beautiful. My blazer is gonna take a little time to finish. As I am waiting for rogue elements to make some cool stuff for it. I even sent him a body set that he could use for measurements and mockup. But can't say what the mods will be.

That is 1 spot on Blazer, now it's my turn congratulate you on your hidden gem!!
The red works really well too, it lifts the model.

Very nice my friend. Love it in red, I had two blazers the other was red and was torn when I decided to sell one. I prefer the red by far but stayed with box art as with all my models. I'm a little envious!
