    Sorell Creek Track

    I am wondering if some static grass sprinkled & glued to the base would help ? anyone tried this ?

    I know, I know........, it's a little bit of a balancing act with the figures. How easy do I want to be able to move them ?, against how much effect is lost by having the "see though" bases. I'm not quite ready to lock them all in to their current positions yet, I still like tweaking them & moving them around into different locations/poses

    Just another small scenic update....keeps me amused ! The actual starters position at Longford, - was on top of a 44 gallon drum....similar to this ! http:// http:// Some more figures have arrived & made their way to various spots on the track.....very specific figures mind you.... A lucky Die-Cast find at a market & some decals very generously provided (& applied) by Phil Kalbfell & we have Bib Stillwells towing vehicle ! and finally, a shot of the Pub on the corner getting ready for Bathurst weekend.......(Although some might say he needed a few more trips). Beer Kegs again generously printed off by Phil! that's all for now !

    Another little scenic addition, on the old Longford Circuit about halfway along Tannery straight was thew following building (shot taken from RFactor track) http:// So, I had a go at re-creating this impressive building on the Sorell Creek (Longford themed) Track. Again, as with most of my buildings, very easy foamboard construction. This time covered with textured brick sheets that add a slight 3d effect to it. http:// http:// http:// cheers !

    The finished bridge took its place on the track.....

    Then added the advertising on the sides. I used publisher to re-create the signage from scratch. and hot glued stairs to the structure.

    The original bridge was extremely "safe" and used a covering of chicken wire over the bridge to "protect " the pedestrians. I used insect netting (not quite the same shape, but close enough!)

    I added the boards (thin balsa scored & painted)

    Hi all, some little scenic additions on the track thanks to some great 3d Printing work done by Phil Kalbfell whose been getting into it over the past year & is producing some great things. the first one was an adapted replica of the pedestrian footbridge over the Longford Circuit in the 1960s (adapted in that it was shortened to fit over a 2 lane track.) After the Longford track closed it was moved to Baskerville circuit here in Southern Tas, and remains there to this day ! The basic initial prints as Phil provided (he also very kindly assembled the bridge structure & steps before I got them !
  10. Hey Demon, if you made it across the water to Hobart (Tas) we'd be able to arrange something I'm sure.....but surely there's groups in Melbourne ?
  11. Great stories Den.....so, in your professional opinion what do you think was better ? the thumb, or the trigger ? What did you find were the advantages/disadvantages of both ? :-)
  12. The MRRC barrel style in the above photo looks very similar (but not quite) some 3rd party controllers my Uncle bought for his Scaley set (to replace the standard Scalex controllers !). I can't remember what brand they were, but were yellow, with electric brake terminals on the controllers as well.
  13. Those controllers were more use as hand warmers weren't they Phil ?
  14. Also, what year (thereabouts) is the Parma ad from ? Interesting that the design of this controller seems to have set the standard. Nothing much different to nowdays. The Russkit from 1969 is pretty close as well. You guys who remember, when do you think it was that the trigger style really took over from the early thumb press style ? which seems to have been the predominant design for many years.
  15. With all due respect for the period, I think the Stern Electronics Posi-Trol HC-100 would have benefited from the input of a designer........or maybe they didn't exist in those days !
