57 Chevy Pro Sportsman
Posted by Justinryan215 on Monday, May 29, 2017 3:11 PM

I decided to do a "quick" build while waiting for paint to dry on my Dambusters Lancaster for the RAF group build, and so I grabbed this 57 chevy dragster off my shelf.

When I opened the box, I saw that I actually started building it, and already painted the body and applied some of the decals...so I figured I could get this one done quickly...boy was I wrong! Lol

Now, don't give me too much credit on the paint!  The flames are kit supplied decals!  Lol

I did get the engine completed tonight, all spark plug wires, and a fuel rail and lines going to the dual carbs....

Would you believe that this is the first model engine I ever wired and plumbed?  Because it is!

Also, a question for those in the know....are these fire suppression tanks or NOS tanks on either side of the battery?

I would say the tanks next to the battery are NOS that's my say.
