Cub Scout DIY Space Derby

My oldest son came home last Monday from his Cub Scout meeting with this DIY Space Derby Kit. He told us that they have to paint and assemble it and bring it back next meeting so they can fly it and I think he mentioned something about having a competition which one flies better.

So anyway, we started working on it last night. My son was cooperative at first, then got sidetracked on something else and as usual I ended up painting the whole thing which I didn't mind at all for I had fun doing it! After I painted it using an acrylic paints, we had to let it dry overnight before I can finish assembling it. Earlier this afternoon, I finally got it finished and my son is really excited about flying it tomorrow. 

Here is what it looks below. It's not the prettiest plane but my son is happy with it and that's all that matters! It was actually not hard to assemble it, the instruction was kinda confusing at first but I finally figured it out. There are some parts that's in the instruction but not included in the kit but I'm so glad to get it finished for my son...

...and the finish product! It looks kinda weird that the fins are too small for the body! LOL! I am hoping this will fly good tomorrow!
