Preheat oven to 350. Mix 1/2 cup of the sugar, flour and salt in top of double boiler. Blend in 3 egg yolks and milk. Cook, uncovered, over boiling water 10-12 minutes, or until thickened, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.
Reserve 12 of the wafers for garnish. Spread small amount of custard on bottom of 1 1/2 quart baking dish; cover with layers of 1/3 each of the remaining wafers and sliced bananas. Pour about 1/3 of the remaining custard over bananas. Continue to layer wafers, bananas and custard to make a total of 3 layers of each, ending with custard.
