When our local Scout Executive announced there would be an after party at the scout center after the Monster Jam show at the civic center, I stopped the derby projects I was working on and figured I’d try to make a monster truck to show the scouts. I decided on an Order of the Arrow Humvee. Specifically, a Takhonek Lodge OA Humvee (of which my son is a member). I’m not 100% happy with it, I rushed to do it in less than a week and sadly it shows. I raised it up, but not enough it seems. It doesn't look anywhere close to as monster-truckish as I had hoped. I glued the roof rack and kayaks on an hour before the party, it's still missing some details and it could have used some more sanding in spots.

I think it needs some bumpers or grill work and next time I'm gong to try colored Sharpie on the wheels not paint. I'll tinker with it some and then it goes in the tubs with the other 55. :)
