Re: Troop 816 - Blastcar Event (with pics!)

Thanks guys! It turned out to be a great event & there was a lot of fun to be had. The scouts are already talking about next year's race, so it's safe to say it's a hit. I do think that this could have taken off with some tweaks, such as encouraging the use of a track rather than the string. I reali...

Troop 816 - Blastcar Event (with pics!)

I think we are a bit late to the Blastcar bandwagon (if there ever was one ;) ) but we had our first race in late May. It was a long time coming, since I had actually started campaigning for Blastcars in 2013. Now, with us having a very small troop, there were only had six participants (out of ~10 b...

A couple new Blastcars

A few months ago, our troop attended the Furious and Fast camporee. One of the events/demonstrations was for Blastcar, which helped my brothers' troop get interested in the event. The boys have been given their blocks and in the meantime, I built a couple of my own. http://img.photobucket.com/albums...

New Pinewood & Blastcar builds

Just thought I'd post some of my new builds. I had gone about a year without working on a derby car, but my brothers' troop is doing blastcars this year, so I dusted off my tools and got to work. I started this one about a year ago, but finally finished this in early fall: http://img.photobucket.com...

Re: 1929 Model A Ford with BSA logo

Wow- that is amazing! Haven't done a Model A yet, but I have done a T & a 32. Nowhere as detailed as yours (or Whoda's) though! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v142/theredlineboss/Pinewood/IMGP2313_zpsa4bd9344.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v142/theredlineboss/Pinewood/IMG_0639_zpse2023f72....

Re: A few finished projects

Lol, thanks guys! I picked on the fourth one just because of it being a pinecar kit - I wound up with a kit and was curious what it was like to use. I do like how it looks tho- the colors worked well. As for the mystery kit: I was kind of puzzled by it at first; the owner had said it was used in an ...

A few finished projects

Since this year's racing season came to an end, I've been continuing with some projects. I'm hoping to keep myself busy while inspiring my younger brothers :lol: . The first four are fresh builds (yeah, the fourth one is lame), but the rest are old cars that I modified. http://img.photobucket.com/al...

Re: New Member's projects

Well, last Saturday was the derby and we had a blast! I brought in a light box to take pictures of the kids cars & I let them send my creations down the track after the actual derby. Some of the cars now have "Authentic Battle Damage!", but it's all in good fun. :D Oh, and my brother got first place...

Re: Memory Lane..

Wow- those are some great designs! I particularly like this one - it has a certain showcar vibe to it. :thumbup:

Re: New Member's projects

Thanks everyone! I'm trying to knock out a few more projects before my brother's derby (this Saturday!). Perhaps some of these designs will give someone an idea for even cooler designs in the future. Honestly, winning races is great, but I personally have more fun seeing a cool design take shape. :m...

Re: 60th Anniversary Build

Nicely done! I'm also working on one, but mine was an original kit that was started (but not finished) many years ago. It's interesting to try and figure out where to put the weight on these things.

Re: New Member's projects

Beautiful cars. The wheels on your green car look like the ones from the 1980's. Am I correct? Actually, I wasn't sure where to find the BSA wheels from the 80's (aside from pilfering them from old cars), so I picked up a few sets of Pine-Pro wheels. They are very similar to the old wheels, which i...

Re: New Member's projects

Thanks for the kind words - I've had a lot of fun working with these things. As I'm going along, I'm trying different shapes; I'm particularly like the way the yellow one is coming along and how my next project is developing: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v142/theredlineboss/Pinewood/IMG_0631_zp...

New Member's projects

New member here - Have been doing quite a bit of work on pinewood cars the last month or so (both making and picking up a few cool looking ones), and I thought it'd be fun to show off some of what I've been working on. It started when I was asked to help one of my brothers with his pinewood derby ca...
