  1. Plain cardboard box. Brown. Separate the layers carefully and you end up with the corrugations. Cut into scale type strips and voila. Likewise the building is the same cardboard box covered with a stone print. Different size boxes have different size corrugations, the bigger the box, the bigger the corrugations. Cheers Dan.
  2. $600 it is. Pick up/ freight up to you.A great little track ideal for 1/32 - my GT40's tear around it, lot of fun. Dan.
  3. Ok. Alright, $750.00 then but you still need to pick up or organise and pay freight. Dan
  4. This building is for my Spaghetti Junction routed track. I was/am working on an Italian countryside Mille Miglia theme. Track is for sale if interested, see that thread. Regards Dan
  5. https://postimg.cc/gallery/3fg2gscq4/ Spent a few hours building this from a cardboard box. I am particularly pleased with the roof, separated the cardboard and used the corrugations to form tiles before painting. All guess work but came out well and cost nothing but time. Dan
  6. Link above for photos of Spaghetti junction. Also the building, and one other 'Martini' building, trees, real metal guardrails and 2 Slot.it SCP -1 controllers with power unit. Regards Dan
  7. If only it was easier to post photos on this forum. Oh well, I must be getting old. Dan. ��
  8. The time has come to sell my two lane routed track. Power unit included and 2 Slot.it hand sets. Scenery needs finishing I have most of that, just not installed, but a lot of track in a small area. Quite heavy, track folds down onto inbuilt base. $900.00 ono. Brisbane location, pick up only. PM for further info. Dan
  9. Thanks Garry, both are working well and I am having fun dialling into their characteristics.

    F1 Is It The Pits

    Yes Peter I am with you. Been a fan since the 60's, watched various teams dominate like Mercedes are now, most teams struggled to compete - the mid field today is much stronger, but without the obscene budgets of the biggest teams they will always be midfield. The noise is s#!t, just listen to the V8's, V10's, and 12's of the not so distant past. I agree the tracks are ridiculously sterile, and in the main, boring. I have always liked Monaco the most because one millimetre off line and it's an early shower, and the proximity of the cars makes them seem they are travelling a damn sight faster than they are. I have had to employ a VPN to get in through the back door to watch GP's on Channel 4 otherwise I would not see any of the season. I used to gauge my year from GP to GP but now I am drifting away. I am happy to pay, but the F1 TV access still hasn't reached us after two years. A shame, I still love the sport but it has definitely gone stale. And worse still, the Red Bull Air Race has pulled the pin. May as well take up cricket....
  11. Yes, Mark is very helpful. Highly recommended.
  12. Hi Garry, are both controllers still available. Thanks Dan
  13. Yes, bit of earth base colour and some static grass will bring that up. You tube static grass applicator - you can make one for about $15 from an electronic fly swatter and a sieve.
  14. I should add for those not familiar with the Wigram track, it was the RNZAF Airbase at the time and the track was huge. So 3/4's of a lap would have been roughly (from my rusty old memory) 50 seconds behind the field over a 48 lap race. And it was a 3litre F1 variant up against the bigger 5 litre F5000's. Brilliant stuff.
  15. I saw him race the STP sponsored March 701 at the Lady Wigram Tasman Series race about '71 or '72. He was taken out at the first corner and restarted fully three quarters of the lap behind the field but drove an absolute blinder to not only finish but to finish third. I "collected" the broken sidepod from the crash and although my older brother pinched it I still have a piece of it today. That drive will stay with me forever, it really was something to see. RIP Chris AMON and thanks for the memories.
  16. Damn, I gotta get a bigger shed.
  17. Great stuff, thanks Garry. It is incredible to see the development of Monte Carlo since this era, let alone the cars, which by today's standards look like they would struggle to beat a Formula Ford. The amount of suspension travel looks scary though.
  18. Thought I had hit the jackpot with the white track borders but no they are unravelling as I speak. I can hear them laughing at me now.
  19. Now that's not fair Em. I've been muddling around for 30 minutes trying to do that.
  20. I give up. I might try tomorrow.
  21. Umm, how would I do that Ember?
  22. Hmmm, the photos attached to the message but have failed to appear on the post, What gives?
