57 Bel Air
Posted by revshag on Saturday, January 24, 2004 5:00 PM
Is it just me or is AMT's 57 Bel Air kit really complicated? I got it on sale several months ago and it's just been sitting on my shelf. I'm a little burnt out on my current projects. I opened the box again to consider building it. There's so many pieces (seemingly unnsecessary).

Has anyone built this kit? I don't think it's the one to help me overcome burnout.

I am building 6 of them right now. Actually, a lot of the extra parts are custom pieces. There are 2 sets of wheels and 2 Chrome Reverse Rims for the dragster.

The kit goest together well and if you seporate all the custom pieces from the stock, you eliminate most of the clutter and confusion.

The only problem seems to be in the stock hub caps. I find that they don't seem to fit the wheels in the way that they would fit on the real car.

I know what you mean about looking at this kit and taking a long time on it. I have one here from 1993 and I am just getting to build it now! It's sat in the box for a long time and I just decided to build it and get it on the shelf.

Anyway, if you want some reference material, please check out my other link on the 1957 Chevy's here :
