My entry for the Chevy 57' Gasser 1:25 Challenge 2018 at MMRK, Ikast (DK)




It started with a JDS2013 Gasser Chassis kit
Kit front and rear soldered together - motor mount is replaced with a brass item cut out of a motor bracket from a Schöler inline chassis.

Main chassis assembly
Work started on adapting the chassis and large motor to the kit. I replaced the kit chassis/floor plate with a similar part from another kit as this has a separate chassis frame.

Now the motor fits in - actually I had to completely rebuild the rear part with a mix of kit parts, placicard and vacformed parts - that took some time :-(
Ride height is determined with the wheels made for this car.
Drop arm added to ensure that the guide stays in the slot during wheelies.  The small wheels for the wheelie bar came from a Parma Dragster kit

My friend did only some minor work on the kit, before other tasks took his attention, and the kit went into storage.

In the early spring of 2013 my friend was scheduled to collect me an early morning for a slot car race in Odense and he brought me his kit for me to assemble with the message that he would not be able to finish it as he had been diagnosed with terminal cancer :-(  what a morning !!
He died in july 2014 after a terrible time, that nearly laid myself wasted :-(

I did, however finish the kit in Brumos livery as per his instructions and he wanted me to keep the model as a memory.
I built the kit mostly from the box, only adding a few details
