Cub Scouts Pinewood Derby {Batmobile}

This is our second year of the Pinewood Derby and Anthony is much more interested and prepared this year.  Click here to see his car from last year.  Initially his design for this year was modeled after a Lego Ninjago car, but once he had the idea of making the Batmobile, he was sold!  No turning back!

Yes, that’s a Lego Batman glued inside!

Here they are ready to paint the logo on. Handy hubby is showing Anthony where to paint – if you look closely you can see the Batman logo in vinyl (thanks to my Silhouette).

Not the best photo (hubby’s iPhone pics), but I had to document the little painter at work!

Anthony was worried that he was putting too much yellow paint on and that we wouldn’t be able to see the bat.  He was THRILLED when we peeled the vinyl off!

They decided to put the weights on like body armor.  Tomorrow night they are headed back to the post office near our home to weigh the car one last time – hoping to get it all set for this weekend since hubby will be at a basketball tournament while Anthony and I go to the Pinewood Derby (this has been their project, not mine!).

They did a great job!  The best part – Anthony says the important part of the Pinewood Derby is to just have fun.  He’s not even worried about winning!  Love him!
