    There was an old warehouse on the outside corner of the Pub.....this was my take on it made over the weekend.... http:// Another couple of shots of it with Bib Stillwell in the Brabham BT4 rounding the corner ! http:// http://
  2. Is this news ? haven't we had a "push to pass button" for donkeys years ? i think the button is known by another name in some places though........accelerator sounds familiar.

    The stone wall was just some free texture images I got from an image site on the web. Signed up to it & was then allowed quite a few free downloads. These were just laser printed & glued onto MDF sheet for the wall. The bricks for the Viaduct were actual textured sheets ordered online from an arty website. Came from Greece !! They look pretty good close up.

    And finally, pub corner & the rest of the track came together in time for some Christmas Day racing :

    In the paddock, a vintage car show will hopefully attract some spectators as well as the food & merchandise stands. The Kiosk stand was made by my son who thought that it was an important missing item. He did a good job for a first attempt I think:

    The "extras" started to take their position. Pits are currently a combination of new Scaley buildings (which will go asap) & older ones (including an original lap counter (not working though!)

    The elevations were a combination of an MDF stone wall & laser printed sheets of rock wall (very quick, but OK for the short term : Sneak peak of the Longford Pub in the background !

    I was short one outside barrier piece for an R3 corner, so with a short time frame & post not going to get me a new piece before Christmas, I dodgeyd one up from MDF & a couple of spare pieces of fencing I had:

    Through the Viaduct and along the main grandstand straight:

    Hokey, well, it's been a few weeks since my initial few posts, so I thought an update would be in order. First order of business thought is to put a disclaimer on the update. My first & immediate task was to get a half decent landscaped track up & running for some playtime at christmas. So keeping this in mind the landscaping you are about to see is of the "quick & dirty" kind ! A few cheats in there as well as using some buildings I already had on hand combined with a couple of simple new builds. The longer term landscaping & building theme will (hopefully) be more in keeping with the era ! So, be kind ! some basic grass mat formed the base for most of the inside of the circuit, as well as the "paddock" with a few vendor stalls.

    Cheers mate, Designed it on Microsoft Publisher. i used an actual white brick background picture then snipped the windows & doors from other photos I found on the web & pasted these in. The writing & other details were all just created in the publisher drawing tools. Printed out the sheets on a laser & stuck em on the corflute !

    Stated work on the actual table to house this in the shed last week. Actually the hardest part of this project so far was getting the shed cleared out to find enough space to even allow this. It's still not "clear"........as everyone knows sheds are magnets for anything that is not wanted elsewhere ! Did a mock up of the baseboard elevations & I couldn't resist the temptation to place the two scenic items on track to see how they might fit in so far: That's all for now everyone....more work & picts to follow.

    Working on the roof quickly showed up my lack of competence......the angles of the joins were very challenging. At least the craft paper option gave a reasonably good corrugated iron look. Finally, the trim & base.......with an appropriate car in the foreground.

    The second historic feature was another classic piece of scenery from the aforementioned 1960s track.......(apologies in advance for my very rudimentary building construction skill). I took the easiest approach to this so that I could get something like an OK rsult, with not much chance of me stuffing it up !. Designed exterior using Publisher actually, and printed out on colour laser. Building construction was using corflute (which was OK to work with, although a bit of a bugger to cut across the "grain" !)

    The first custom piece of scenery was the bridge (or viaduct to be historically accurate !). Based on a certain feature on a classic road track of the 1960s basic MDF construction, then managed to get hold of some textured brick sheets on-line to add a little depth to the finish..
