Can you tell what this is? (pics)

I have a PowderPuff Derby with my Girl Scout troop this weekend (it's the GS version of the Pinewood Derby that Boy Scouts do). And here's my car so far. Can you tell what it's going to be?

DH helped to shape it. It started out as a rectangular block of wood:

Then I sculpted on the hair and eyes. It still needs to cure and then be painted, plus have wheels added on. Smile


I'll post pics when I'm done with it. But I wanted to show y'all my crafty project in progress. It's really been fun! Smile

Oh, phew! Glad someone could tell who he is! Smile

Yep. He's Junior. My co-leader is making hers into a Larry and Bob (I don't exactly know how, but that's what she said!). Smile

that's gonna make an awesome Junior! (although he bugs me as a character, Larry is my favorite by far!)

and now I have the hairbrush song stuck in my head.

The hair and eyes are out of a stuff called "Epoxy Sculpt". It's a two-party epoxy that hardens up really well. It's kind of like modeling clay, but dries quicker and harder. I could never carve wood that well! LOL

I'm so glad you guys could tell who it is! The derby is tomorrow, so I'll let you know how it goes. Smile
