That is too COOL !!!! I Love the fenders. What did you have in mind for a trailer? A flat bed perhaps hauling a fully assembled Pinewood Derby track. A sign on the side saying, "Mid America or BUST !

That's beautiful work Whoda. Your creations always make me smile.

Cheers,
Speedster

Thank's Speedster!
For the trailer I have in mind to build a tanker..
(Haulin' Gas.. Racing Fuel )
with the same fat fenders on it!
Image
Still have a little work to do on it.. like the tank supports and so on!
Right now as is.. it's 7.25 oz shy of 25.0 oz.
So there's room for more details.

I like your ideas as well for a trailer! I might have to do a lowboy trailer with something like that sometime.

My neighbor, Don, hauled gas for Marathon Oil for 25 years. He has several models in a case hanging on his wall. He's going to smile from ear to ear when he sees your truck. I'll wait until it's finished.
Beautiful work, Whoda.

She's a Beauty !!!!!! I Love the Detail.
I'm getting a feeling the truck racing might be the most popular race at the Mid America. I hope they have a lot of pictures of the trucks.
Job Well Done.
Your speed amazes me.
Cheers

Okay Speedster and Don here it is all finished up!
Image

I added head lights to the truck and some safety reflectors to the trailer. before packing it up a shipping it off for Mid America though!

I liked the ideas you had about the trailers so much Bill, I might just have to build one like that for next years race!

However with all the details and small parts made.. comes the troubles with braking them off while packing them up!
Broke one of the push bars off the super boss truck.. no worries though I was able to fix it.

Looks like your wish of seeing the Super Boss truck race at Mid America might also come true after all!
With out a track of my own.. i have no idea on what they will do and that's the fun of it for me.

Your truck looks amazing. I am loving the name. For some reason coming up with good racing names is one of my favorite parts of pinewood derby.


Just do your best and we'll always have fun. Rockets are who we are! Go Rockets!

Thank's Rocket Man,
Good racing names are hard to come up with sometimes.. however some can take the wording in the wrong way as well.
I meant the logo race name haulin' gas
as just that a tanker truck haulin fuel such as gas and that's why it also says racing fuel as well.
