Figured this was the place to put this.
A group I belong to decided to do a pinewood derby amongst the adults. I had seen a weak attempt at a wiimote car before at my mom's Webelos pack derby race, and decided to outdo anything I had done in my youth.
Hours of sanding, cutting, and painting yielded this:

a trigger, too. And yes, that is a poorly-etched "Nintendo" symbol where it is on the controller.

Learned a few things from this:

I didn't take quite accurate measurements, which is why the A button is way higher than it ought to be.
Painting letters is more difficult if imitating an actual font!
