Slide of the Month Extra - Philmont Commissary

May 2021

Time to make: 3 hours

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design: Bill Macfarlane


Every wonder how all those tasty trail meal make it up to the back country camps? Pedro the pack mule? Hiked in by dedicated first year staff? No, its the job of the Philmont Commissary Staff who tireless work to make sure we are resupplied. Here we see our new staffer Barry loaded up and heading out on his first day.

This concept slide honors behind the scenes work the commissary staff does every day getting the many tons (yes tons) of food to the Scouts, Scouters, and Staff. Thank you, because without you I'd have to carry 14 days of food on my back. And the Bear you ask, well sometimes I just make myself laugh at my weird sense humor...

Carved from maple, the tricky part was trying to make the truck look like a loaded truck without making the bear look too small. As a result, the truck is a bit more of a Jeep or perhaps cartoon like. Painted with hobby paints, lettering with waterslide paper, and finished off with a couple coats of Poly.
