Great to see you on here Stephen. I have enjoyed reading your various track and collection threads on SlotForum International.

No doubt you are well aware of how popular you are with other slot car enthusiasts when your photos allow us to say to say to our other halves "See? My collection / track is actually really quite reasonable when you compare it to these photos..." :blink:

So definitely thanks for sharing! B)

Yes, I have many thank you notes from husbands across the world for “making me look normal to my wife”.  This may start to explain why   I have lost count but the display cabinets were designed to hold 1,000 cars, I know there are at least more than 1,600

HAH,  all we are really interested in are three things  :ph34r::ph34r:

- Your full address

- What days and times you are out

- The code to your alarm system

That is a cracking set up

Ha ha! I'm more interested in your address and what day and time you race! B)

Might be quite awhile before anyone from the antipodeans will be able to show up though...sigh...:huh:

Decided to work on my Italian Village today. Originally ProScalehobbies buildings 

I had already used grout in two different colors for the deliberately rough stucco look but all the windows and balconies and doors were identical and not painted so I added some changes including changing the roof tile look to be closer to the real thing  

Buildings before

This is what they look like from the manufacturer. Basically laser cut thin MDF except mine didn’t have the fancy windo inserts and balcony posts of this later version
