Those race cars look really great George, your grandkids will be well pleased with them. I love the colour schemes.  What material are they made from, MDF, Pine or what?

Wow George

What a great build for the kids.
I am impressed.
Thanks for sharing this project and as soon as I have time this would be a great project to build for the craft shows.
You did a great job.

George 

I am looking closer at this build and have a question.
Did you cut the wheels in sections, maybe 1/2" wide they glue them together to make the different size wheels?
   Could you tell us more.  Like how did you cut the outside hub as well.
I really like these cars.
Again thanks for sharing.

Hi guys thanks for your comment. The car body is 7" long made out of pine,the wings are made out of poplar, the wheels are made with dowel, hubs done with spade bits I have made wheels with hole saw just as good. The paint primer/undercoat water base ecolour witch is australia made non-toxic goes on very smoothly very good to work with great to sand I put on 2 coats and sand between each coat I have not mastered the gloss yet they will make any colour you want, got to work on the finish there as not getting the shiny finish they also have a polyclear But these cars are sprayed with rust-Oleum 3 coats. These are one of my best paint jobs because I took more time to make and paint. Hope this help,as I am not good at putting things into words George
