Hi everyone,
Here is my first project post!
These are the kubkars that I have made over the past several years.
They were entered in our church competition as well as the competition with our council.
I must say they take up a large amount of time, but I have tons of fun with them!
For some of them I had some help from my dad but the jeep and pickup were done on my own.
The silver car was done with the help of the guiding hand of my dad available at all times (I was only 9at the time).
Maybe you cannot see it in the picture, but I love the paint job on the 2nd car (I used a whole 13” can of automotive spray paint)
Hope you guys enjoy these!
