It's like Thunder, Lightning - the speed it goes is just frightening... Well not really but Lightning is pretty fast and you can build it right in your own home!

Our wooden car building kits are just great fun - they inspire creativity and teach basic woodworking skills, and every kit is made by hand in our Hampshire workshop.

The character building kit
The awesome 'Lightning' design Scrappy Races Car Making Kit comes with the core compenents you need to build the car plus loads of accessories and extra scrap wood you can use to make your very own totally unique version of this car, plus an in-depth instructional video to create a great workshop experience in your home.

The kit comes with wheels, axles, washers, unsanded wooden components, wires, extras and accessories but please note that the wheel colour is random and may be Blue, Green, Yellow, Red or a mix.

From these awesome components, you will have everything you need to build the best looking and fastest car around and you'll learn how to use the spare parts to make your own accessories too!

The kit also includes PVA to attach the main components and glue dots for mess-free, instant sticking of accessories.

Once you've finished, you can colour in your car using pens or paints (not included) whichever you prefer!

Character building kits for all ages
The Scrappy Races car building kits are suitable for almost any age but there are small parts included so we recommend age five and above. 

This is not a toy and children must be supervised at all times when building their kit. Parents/Guardians should take care to ensure the car is fully sanded when finished paying special attention to parts that might stick out or potential splinters.

What tools are needed to make a wooden character?
We provide sandpaper in the kit and you will need some glue and a cross head screwdriver. A pair of long nose pliers and a sanding block are useful too but not essential. 

Why not include our great value Essential Maker Tool Kit to make sure you have all the tools you need?

You can check out our detailed instruction video here

We hope you have great fun building these cars and we can’t wait to see what yours looks like.

Vroom Vroom!!!!
