first.. gotta say..... love the Lancia's in your pic's..................& yeah,,, your scenery is starting to take shape,,,,,,from my own experiance(very litle of nil)........ I know how hard it is to get the scenery happening when you got a bunch of cars that are staring at you with puppy eyes,,just wanting to be thrashed around the track....

Ive only just noticed the... "bridge"..???.....in the 2nd & 4th pic.... is there a story to this on how you developed the lenghth & height of it?? ..................lookin good

The little bridge is only quite low but I intend to pour some resin straight onto the (suitably painted) mdf to create a small creek. It was a good excuse to eat a few ice blocks the other weekend. I figure a few lomps and bumps would make it more interesting, the old spare bed was the only room I had for it.........p....d the cat off no end. Hopefull I'll have a timing system set up in a few days, then the build will really slow down

I guessing you could only drive rally/cross type cars over the bridge,,,,,, where as any sought of GT or tourer would smack there front wing or only just clear...... I'm going to have a crack at another track build soon & am keen to put some dips or crest into it... but keep it road like..

I've got the Scaley Classic hump bridge track, and most of my collection bottom out on that...
The best form of dip / crest that I've done was by making a hill climb track...
Winding road up, long sweeping banked road down...

Funny enough my Slot-It chassied Munter McLaren M12 is one of the quickest cars around it. Will have a better idear when I set up the timing system.

Looking very good. Surprised to see a pig in the scenery,though it would be a sheep!
Have you managed to get the timing working,or been too busy with the scenery?

I was thinking more of a Reindeer. Yes I've got the timing pretty well sorted,
