Hi All

Wanted to share the 1st Molding Cars.  These were made from donated crown molding.

These can be used for simple sales items, or as give away's.

Note:  The police car was the first of many modifications suggested by Udie.
He already has a number of mods he would like to do with these.

I would really like to see and hear about your ideas for these molding cars.
It will be fun to see what we can do with them from your suggestions.

When the crown molding is given to me, I am going to use them as give away's for the Smiles For Miles Program.  Or I might ship one with an order as an extra bonus and thank you for ordering from FuzzyDuck Creations.
I did give one away yesterday, and was awarded with the biggest smile.  Mom and Dad wanted a business card.

Let me know your ideas.
Thanks.

First impression is very good Ken, I'd say the car width proportion is right on and the wheel diameters are also right on. Just the slightest change made on the Police Car really adds some dimension for use of playing by a youngster.

Ken - Great idea for give-a-ways. Using the axle pegs for the Police car is a perfect solution and looks really cool. Looks like painting them took longer that making them.
Couple questions - what are the wheel sizes you used and what did you use for a top coat?

Thanks Gary, the police car is all Udie's idea.

Udie:  The wheels are 3/4" on the front and 1" on the back.
The cars were painted with FolkArt Metallic Acrylic paint, and all the cars painted and non painted were sprayed with Polyurethane clear gloss.  Sanding and painting did take longer than making the cars, these are way easy.  
If the crown molding is given to you, then the cost is about $0.28 per car.
Not bad.

Very nice Ken.  You could try drilling a hole or two and putting a driver and/or passenger in.

Thanks Paul for the idea.

I might try that if I find bigger crown molding.  This is pretty small stuff and I might weaken the middle of the car to much if I drilled to big a hole.

I will keep it in mind.

Again thanks.

These are great.  I think the police car is my fave.  Thanks for sharing on the wheel size so we can get perspective.  I too think the width looks spot on.  Nice glossy finishes.
