I was commissioned to design & build the trophy for the AW 300 NASCAR Race: had about a week & a half to get it done & shipped :)  The race was sponsored by the NRA, & honored service men & women; so I designed the trophy with guns that are recognizable for military & police.  The base is a wheel hub from a military helicopter, with rounds from the turret gun of an A-10 Warthog fighter jet.  I also added dummy rounds on top to represent the 5 branches of the military, along with the stars on the decal.  The trophy was constructed mostly from scrap aluminum, old spent rounds, & some thin sheet steel, along with hardware & lots of last minute panicked sweat, lol :)  In the end, we got it done & shipped out just in time & the trophy was a big hit--hoping to be able to design one for the race next year ; )
