2015 Pinewood Derby

Last weekend was the Cub Scout Pinewood Derby. I always love seeing what Trevor dreams up. I was expecting an animal, since he made a mouse car in 2013 and a dragon car in 2014. Nope. This time it was a spaceship.

He sketched it out and made the cuts with help from my dad during our Christmas visit. He painted and decorated it on his own, then Steve helped him add the wheels and adjust the weight. Here's a different view:

Unfortunately, Trevor's spaceship was significantly slower than the real thing. The spaceship was out of the competition very early, which has been a common theme for Trevor over the years. Good thing he doesn't care. He's much more excited to build and decorate a cool car than a fast one. And he loves cheering on his friends who do design the fast cars.

As usual, Trevor will enter his car in the county fair. The cars are judged on appearance and he has always done very well. Hopefully the judges agree with us all that Trevor's 2015 Pinewood Derby car is out of this world!


  1. Ohhhhh this is awesome! I love it!!!! Great job Trevor!!!!

  2. I think his car is fantastic! I'm sorry to hear that it didn't go as fast as he wanted. I hope it does well at the fair.

  3. Definitely out of this world! Love it! :)
