"Yellow Jacket" 57 Chevy Gasser


Recommended Posts

I finally finished my 57 Chevy gasser (look in the WIP for progress pictures).  There was a lot done to this kit......scratch built front suspension with poseable steering, front gas tank mount, scratch built battery tray, radiused rear wheel openings, the rear suspension is a combination of NASCAR Craftsman truck and '41 Willys ladder bars, aluminum driaveshaft, computer made decals and a host of little things from other kits.  I really enjoyed this build.  This is my first gasser model I have ever built.  I might build more.

What a neat and very believable gasser!  I love the idea of gluing small strips of plastic on the edge of the flip front to help guide it into position.  I have an unpainted built-up in my collection that I plan to build with a Badman theme.  I'm definitely using your idea on that one!
