Default Wooden GEV toy

My son kept pointing at the OGRE miniatures box and going "Hovercraft!" so I decided to make him a wooden toy version. It looks like it's slightly smaller than the macroscale GEV.

The paint isn't super detailed as it was immediately given to a five year old to play with.

Just for reference: How much does that weigh?

(Technically: All the cardboard counters in the various _OGRE_ sets are "wooden minis. :) )

That seriously rocks! Well done!

How long did that take you? Is it something that the "average Joe" could easily do? A detailed description of the process, if not too technical, might be appreciated by others.

That's cool. Great way to start him on the Ogreverse.
