55 Chevy Nomad Gasser

Tortuga Kustomz

Recommended Posts

Hello guys, i know i haven't make any progress post on this project, or did any post at all, but i've been extremely busy so i just do any model work on the little time i have, but now i'm getting more free time and have couple of projects on the bench.

I want to show you guys this little gasser that i just finish and love it, came out really nice, didn't have some of the parts so i need to ask for them and swap the engine from another kit, but at the end came out nice and i'm happy with it.

Paint is Testor lime green and white

slicks are form AMT race set

front wheels, gas tank, radiator are from parts box

engine is from nova funny car kit

stacks are from detail masters

exhaust, roll cage are scratch build


Hope you guys enjoy...

Very nice looking Gasser.  Really like the flares around the rear wheel wells, adds a touch of completion to the build.

This looks very cool, Marcos. I like that the nose isn't a mile high, too!

Thanks Daniel, i didn't want to see the car too high in the front, i like better this look for gassers, when i see those cars extremely high i find out that they have to be difficult to drive and race

A pic of the box art would be nice Marcos.  Thanks.  

I'm at work now but i put the box art on the video i upload to YouTube, hope that helps
