Figured I’d upload a few pics while waiting for the big storm.
Every year I’ve made one of these for my boss’s daughter for her church. This year my son is old enough to participate so we’ve made one for him and mine also. Red #1 is my boy’s, #2 is the girl’s, and #54 belongs to yours truly. When Frank’s Nursery and Crafts went out of business I picked up a Krylon Mystique paint kit for about $5. I’ve had it for years and finally decided it’s time to use it. The paint changes from purple to brown to gold depending how the light hits it. The kids were shot with gray primer and Duplicolor automotive enamel. We all compete in different classes so I’ll still have a job if I beat my boss’s kid.

Nice set of cars you’ve made there.
I’ve been trying to find out something about the Pinewood Derby events and seem to be only getting bits & pieces on the net….
From my knowledgeable we haven’t really got it in Australia.
Anyways, great toys.
Cheers, crowie
