Coming together very nicely Cam. :)

 

Looking forward to what you do with the scenery as well.

 

One of these days - my next track will be Scorpious and definately with the use of a CNC router.

 

Hope us locals get an invite when your finished :)

Finished installing guard rails, couldn't find a plastic strip that I liked so machined my own to look like Yas Marina's. Also used some lexcen at the far end of the track so you can see all lane changers.

Very tidy Cam. So what sort of times in Analogue were you doing

 

Couple of other questions. :)

 

Surface Paint

How did you do the ripple strips.

Thanks OTFS.

Don't know what the lap times are, I will wait for scorpius rather than setting up temporary timing. Surface is brushed Ferodor which I like, not as harsh as the rollered finish but still has lots of grip. Ripple strips were engraved when I machined the track. First I painted them white, masked the squares off and painted the red squares. I brushed them but used an additive called Pentrol for enamel paints, sign writers used it back in the day of intricate lines on prime movers. It's good stuff, makes the paint flow and brush lines all but disappear. Or you could air brush them.

Made a start on some scenery, still need to work out pit buildings and scenery on opposite side to pits.

Looks good Cam. Nice and bright. Quite like the clean, ultramodern look of it. Love the manicured lawn.


Computers. They'll never catch on.

thats a nice/great standards you have acheived with surounding sceenery so far,love the grass,love the track sign writting, even like the palm trees [as much as I hate P/tree's in the fronts of yards in W/suburbs]. cleaning dust should be a breeze. Got to ask what the two tracks or lanes are for in front of the crane?

Thanks fellow slotters.

 

Neil, that is just a decorative run off area, Yas has lots of them.

 

Did a bit more last night, I thought this corner lends itself to looking similar to the one in the photo.

I wouldn't have been suprised you had the crane routed & wired.

I keep going back and forth on a routed digital or analogue. This one makes me want a scorpius track (especially as space is limited for me so more room). How much do you have into the track roughly cost wise? The biggest thing for me is I can run 2 lanes and still race 3 or more cars. But cost is also a factor.

 

Just an awe inspiring track you got.

The cost of electronics in on the Scorpius web page. You can always build the track with lane changers, run the track as analogue and add the digital bits as you can afford them. Routing the track by hand will save you money, digital wood tracks dont have to be cnc...my next one will be done manually.

 

Thanks

Looking the goods Cam! Have to be the best looking digital (well - soon to be) track in Aus! Looks very slick and clean!

 

It has got me all motivated to pull my finger out and rip up the ninco digital plastic on my track and do a three lane scorpius (the scenery will remain unchanged)

Why is that Cam? I was beginning to think CNC would save you the whole mess, and offset the cost by not buying a router and bits?

 

Hi KK,

 

The way I buit my track in 60+ small pieces was ridiculous and really time consuming. The only reason I used my machine was because it was there, saved paying for someone else to machine it and I wanted to see if I could do it. Routing by hand is easy, set up a fence and rout away, you dont have to wait for quotes + manufacturing time and it will save lots of money. If you make a mistake, bog it and do it again. There are a few ways of doing the lane change sections manually that are doable.

 

Thanks to all for the encouragement.
