Looking good there Andrew...

 

So, when are you going to get into scenery tracks?

As soon as someone puts a deposit in my bank account, and asks me to build one ;)

The braid is finaly here, so it's full steam ahead, who wants to do test laps on Saturday?

Ok, I had to take Friday off to get all the braid laid and have it ready for a few mates to come over early Saturday to help put it together before Quinten arrived around lunchtime.

All went well and we were doing laps about an hour before he got here.

We started off with 1/24th Scaleauto's, and slot.it's, but the most fun was with the flexi cars.

Too say we were having too much fun to want to hand over the track, would be an under statement.

 

But before too long the time to pull it apart and load it on the trailer arrived and I had to part ways with it.

He has called today to let me know just how much they are enjoying it now, his son didn't go to bed until after midnight last night.

 

Another happy customer.

 

Cheers

Thanks for your comments, I'll try to keep showing what I am building and if you have any questions or quiries, I'll try to answer those as well.

If anyone wants close ups of anything specific, I can see what I can do about that too.

 

Cheers

Andrew

I had a call from a guy in Adelaide, he saw the big track I did, and wanted one the same but with a trist.

I have started to make it and will get some photos up as soon as I have something to show you, it's realy starting to take shape.

Here is the extra loop leon wanted, I think it fits in great and will add an extra feature to this track giving it its own personality.

 

I can't wait to do a few laps on this one.

It's starting to take shape now, and this is only half of the track.

The next half will be ready by next weekend, who wants to help me put the two halves together and test it out?

Looking great there Andrew...

Are there any changes to the other half from the previous track?

 

 

Hmmm, with racing on Wednesday night, racing on Friday night, and probable racing on Sunday, that leaves a possible Saturday for me...

Oh, I forgot this one I prepared earlier.

If you think this one looks a lot like the one I did for the guy in Orange, you would be dead right.

This is the second track I built for him, only to have him continually changing his mind and making changes after I had finnished the build. So I told him that I no longer wished to do buisiness with him.

 

I just had a phone call and a deal was struck, this one will be going to Adelaide, Leon will pick it up and deliver it when he comes to get his track.

It's starting to take shape now, all I have to do now is wire it up and start doing laps.

It all came together very nicely, I was doing laps all day Sunday. Quallity control you know.

Did all the fine tuning, had to add a third power tap in the loop area, too much power drain over 40m of copper tape I guess.

Leon arrived late afternoon on Monday and loaded both tracks onto a tray back ute, that was an effort I can tell you now.

 

Next track on the drawing board is for Penrith slotcar centre, a 6 laner, 9m long, stay tuned.
