Hey all,

 

so, some more small improvements.  I've been working on improving the look of the pit/control tower area to fit the period & track I'm trying to highlight.  My very basic scenic building skills are highly evident in these, but anyway, here we go !

first, the control tower & pits I did up hoping to capture the feel of the tower & pits at the start finish line at the Longford track.  Looking something like this:

The original tower being 3 story would have looked too high & out of place on the track, so I scaled it to 2 levels, but tried to still capture the feel of it.  using foam board, Publisher & basic laser printing.....

The finished product replaced the standard scalex control tower (which looked very much out of place)

The pits were adapted from a Greenhills garage kit & includes the open top level spectator stand above the pits (which is where my Dad and uncle watched the 1965 Australian Grand Prix from, and saw Bruce McLaren win from Jack Brabham is one of the great GPs of all time)

And a couple of overall shots down the Pit straight....

On a recent visit to a wonderful automobile museum in Launceston,  I managed to pick up a few very nice di-cast models (VW Beetle, AC Cobra & Aston-Martin DB5) to add to the paddock car park scene....

That's all for now !

That's remarkable modelling - we're very envious ! :)

Question - if you were to paint the Scalextric Track, what would be recommended? Prep and type of paint? Asking for a friend, as we say...

Or, to put another way - my own track is Scalextric Sport, and is copped taped and partially painted - but I think it can be done better.....

Ideas, people?

Cheers,

There's only two questions:

 

1. What direction do you go

2. What's the Lap Record?
