I ordered three car trophies on a "rush" status for our Cub Scout's Pack Pinewood Derby in northern California. When the trophies arrived, I was extremely disappointed to see one of the trophies looked like it had been paint by a three-year old child. Plus, the "clear-coat" applied over the finished product had nor been allowed to dry before it was packaged as the bubble-wrap "marks" were imbedded into the trophy. It would have been unacceptable to present that trophy to our first place finisher. So, I called and complained about the quality of the trophy. The company did ship another one overnight, but the quality of that trophy was only slightly better than the first one. The other two trophies I ordered were fine-looking and as I had expected, but the third was a disappointment, and was not first place trophy worthy! If I ever used this company again for our Pinewood Derby, I surely will not order that trophy again!"
The trophies looked like they were painted by children and were not clear coated for a lustrous appearance. Luckily I am a hobby model builder and was able to-yes-paint them myself. I felt this was less painful than calling K2 up and complain, box these back up, send them back and wait for the next shipment and hope it's not deja vu. I clear coated them myself as well. So I guess that not having a clear coat was a blessing in disguise. I guess K2 awards confuses the word trophy with paperweight.
