My latest Foamy (it won't fly)

This is my latest foamy project. It's a pine derby car for the Awana's Grand Prix tomorrow... still a lot of work to do.

What kind of race Larry? Sort of a Soap Box Derby thing, maybe?

Nice looking car, bet it could fly with the right kind of wings....

Very Cool Larry!

Looks sexy, but it's gonna take an awful lot of lead to make it legal! I always made a car for our Boys Brigade race to demo techniques & give the kids idea of what can be done. They're still around here somewhere.....

It's a foamy and scratch built, but it doesn't fly... 2 out of 3 it's more than half legal.

Thanks everyone for all the nice comments.

Springer. It took 1.5 oz to make it legal.

Added the finished product to post #1.

Larry, you can do more with foam than anyone I've seen. I'll bet you sleep on a foam mattress and dream about foam projects. Is that your design?
