Cub Scouts Pinewood Derby Truck

February was our Pinewood Derby race for the cub scouts. Seeing as the Tiger Cubs are only ages 6-7 the dads had to do all of the cutting and carving. We decided that we wanted something different than the usual generic race car design, so Dad got to carving a truck out of the nice block of wood it started as.

Next was the easy (fun!) part of painting the car. N did most of the painting, but I did help with windows.

Dad the put the wheels on in which case our Pinewood Derby truck could have been finished. However we wanted something with more "wow" factor. So on went a few spare toys. A scorpion to guard the back, a skull on the hood, and a pirate skull on the top. The metal pieces on the back are weights.
