Well heres the new layout for track #4, Not sure if it will be 3 or 4 lanes as yet i know the area size i have to work with its just a matter of making it fit with 105 mm lane spacings.
It will be Magnabraid, Ferrodore again.

Construction to start this weekend.

Its not a very technical drawing but you get the idea ;) .

Wow!!! Embs is right!
You don't muck around Dave!
How close are you to a final design? Or will you just wing it once the MDF is layed out?
Cheers,
Dick

Shouldn't you just immediately come to my place & build it just to save a little time & save me taking half the house off??

I like the curved straight over the bridge. Curved straight? - Found out last week that I have some Irish blood in me :lol:

What direction?

This is pretty much it, but we all know when its on paper it doesnt always reflect the finished product.. :lol:

The Ferrodor i had left over went on my dads track so none left but thanks anyway. ;)

GZ - I'm just realistic about how organised I am! Thinking about that too Dave - just don't know where to take it from.. I was thinking of slicing it up to put hills in but it might be easier to just start from scratch..

Some major progress today after waiting till 12 for the timber delivery, and some help from my site manager.. :P .

After some drawing on the MDF i have worked out that 4 lanes will fit nicely, i have made some jacks to lift the track at the bonnet end another 3 inches allowing me to make that area bigger.

Hopfully some routing during the week and paint next weekend.

Site manager..

I was over your way on Friday night Dave (drove past your street!) helping a mate move house.
There was no time to call in and say G'Day (got home early the next morning!) but I would have if I had time.
Gotta see the PREMYA and the track build.
Looks like I'll be over that way in the next coupla weeks, so I might get a chance to see another of your great track builds!

Good to see the site manager on the job! :P

Those shelves are still a bit full... allow me to lighten them for you! B)

The site manager was actually a great help today for those little things when your holding a piece of timber and forgot to get the drill and screws... B) ,

Your welcome to drop by anytime, i dont get out much these days... :( there'll be a few beers in the fridge .

Is your mate moving in or out?..

Bit of an update, not much happening atm (work gets in the way ;) ) tonight i managed to get it exactly were i want, and ready for routing this weekend and hopefully paint next week.

Just need to get the design right.. :D

I added a block to the base so i can jack it up and place 45 mm blocks under the wheels on one side to allow me to drive the car under.

Plenty of room down the side.
