How to make a Crown, Flag, or Bacon Pinewood Derby Cars

carThis year we made Crown, Flag, and Bacon Pinewood Derby cars. The pictures, tools, and art supplies used will hopefully help or inspire your Derby car. Tips I have picked up over the last few years are down at the bottom.

The Boy had the American Flag, and won a medal for Patriotic theme. The Girl had the Crown, and won a ribbon for Best Tag. I had the Bacon car, but no winning for me. It was fun nonetheless!

Princess Crown Car

Tools Used:
Table Saw, Dremel, Hammer, and Flathead Screwdriver

Art Supplies:
Spray Paint, Craft Paint, Glitter Glue,  and Sticky Jewels

Mark the car in one inch increments. Then make angles up and down at each inch. I cut off the last inch for it to stay even. I made my cuts on the table saw (bit by bit since it was my first time doing this). A coat of primer in the form of white spray paint was applied after edges were smoothed. The Girl painted with silver craft paint then a layer of clear glitter glue for more sparkle. Then she added her jewels. I did not intend for her to use 7 sheets of them (luckily from Dollar General so cheap), but this is her style most definitely!
Once all is dry, add wheels and weight to get to whatever your Pack’s specifics might be.

American Flag Car

Tools Used:
Table Saw, Dremel, Hammer, and Flathead Screwdriver

Art Supplies:
Spray Paint, Craft Paint, Painters’ Tape, Pencil, and Polyurethane

Used the table saw again to cut this car. Wanted to have a slope, but it didn’t quite work out so my Hubs used the Dremel to make the grooves. This gave a waving effect to the flag.
As before it was primed with spray paint after being cut and sanded. Craft paint with painters’ tape for the lines was used. The stars were made with white craft paint and the eraser end of a pencil.  Just dip and dot it where you want your stars. Polyurethane was applied to protect the paint and add some gloss. Wheels and weights were added at the end.

Bacon Car

Tools Used:
Table Saw, Dremel, Hammer, and Flathead Screwdriver
Hot Glue Gun (Optional)

Art Supplies:
Spray Paint, Craft Paint, and Polyurethane
Craft Foam Scrap, Google Eyes, Pipe Cleaner(Optional)

I had thought about making a Bacon car, and when I had some trouble cutting the American Flag I had this bit of wood. I drew some curves to give the look of cooked bacon. After quite a bit of cutting and sanding it was primed with spray paint. I used two shades of brown to make the bacon, and then polyurethane to seal it.

Later I decided to go more comical and make him into a bacon person named Kevin. I used a little pink craft foam to make a snout and hot glue it on (this had to be cut on the bottom because of dragging..see Tips). The tail is a small piece of pipe cleaner curled around a pen and then hot glued on back. The eyes were the biggest google eyes I had on hand. I used a piece of craft foam to glue the eyes to, and then another piece as an “L” to attach the eyes to the car so they would stand up.

Tips:

If your wheels are not going in straight or do angle a bit use a flathead screwdriver to help straighten them. Use a small flathead, and put it on the nail and hammer the screwdriver end to help push the nail back down. Use caution doing this, and if any cracking of the car starts…Stop!!

Put your weight near the back on your car. This will give you the best push towards the finish line.

Get as close to your Pack’s weight limit as possible. You want as heavy as you can have according to the rules.

Test run your car to make sure the wheels are not wiggling, and nothing is dragging on the rails of the track (specs should be in your rules about width and clearance)

An easy way to attach weight to the bottom is with double sided carpet tape. This is a woven type tape, and it has amazing stickiness. Ours was sticky on the cars from last year still.

A Dremel has been essential with our Pinewood Cars. The Sanding wheels and cutting blades have helped so much with all the curves and small details.

    Those are so neat. My son would have kick out of watching Dad make these. You should really do a step-wise photo tutorial. Will definitely bring lots of interest!

      A step by step would be good, but this year I was stressed making 3 of them in time. Hubs did some of the Dremel work on the flag. Next year if I can work on them when I have another pair of hands to take photos I will do one! Opinion though..I put these as collages because I thought it would be too much have a bunch of pictures for three different cars. Would you put them all together or three separate posts?

    The Bacon car looks like it could almost be in Sugar Rush (Wreck-It Ralph)! My husband and tot love to make cars all the time, but they usually have kits. This looks like a lot of fun to do! I’m going to have to tell my builders. <3

      I have not seen Wreck It Ralph. You can buy these kits along with the Raingutter Regatta and Space Derby rockets at your local Scout store (each Council has a store with uniforms, books, badges, etc.)
      I need to get some other kits for just fun. We used to go to Lowe’s for the building programs, and they have some nice kits.
