Multiple car display stand

Post by fonzfam » Thu May 15, 2008 2:25 pm

We have been giving the boys a stand each year on which to display their cars. A parent has suggested we give our Webelos a multi car stand in which to display all their previous cars at their "last" race. I think it's a marvelous idea but have been unable to find a simple or cost effective plan to display 3 or more cars. We are an LDS pack so each boy only makes 3 cars. I think a plan that could be adjusted to fit 3-5 would be an amazing asset to any pack. Does anyone have suggestions or plans?

For the Craftsman Pin there is a simple pedestal. 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 plate with a 2 x 2 - 4"s tall. You could make the plate bigger and have 3 to 5 - 2 x 2's all and different lengths, shortest being in front of course. Be like a stair step.

Just a quick idea.

Our District pushes the Derby Dome for $15 a piece. I think that's a little steep.
I'm sure someone in this illustrious forum has a good idea... it's just not me right now.

There are a few display cases shown in this thread

The one that BigTex posted may be about what you are looking for. You can always make it without the plexiglas front.

I have plans posted for the one that I built my kids. You can modify it to work with fewer cars.
