Gents,

I have started laying out the new egg track. The table measures 4.3m x 2.4m. Originally I was going to go with a 3 laner like phoneo but the wife directed that I make it 4.

I have some pictures but being not real techno have absoultley no idea of how to post them.

Any ideas.

Get Martin to post them. Saves you the hassle of learning computer geeky things. I have an 18 year old son. Saves me having to learn computer geeky things.

Where can we put our missuses in for the "Eggmeister Spousal Training School"??

I think I'll only get one car this week - no no - get three - four - just go berserk! get some more track in there!

Ok gents here goes. Firstly I made a little scale model of the track out of paper so that I could play around with differnet designs and heights etc. This is what it looked like.

Posted Image

After that it was down to routing and after a couple of days creating dust and noise and sweat and stubbies here we go.

Posted Image

This is the view from the right hand side.

Posted Image

Now from the left hand side which shows the narrow overpass which will lead into the downhill essess.

Posted Image

Back down the back straight which has a hump in it and onto the main straight uphill to the downhill sweeper which runs under the overpass and back up to the narrow bridge.

Posted Image

I have bogged the holes and hope to paint over the next few days. Lane length is around the 18 meters. Sorry about the quality of the photos but i only have a doggy old digital. Maybe santa will bring me something nice. Pumpkin's getting something nice....

Now that was worth waiting for. I like the scale model idea. I think I will try that one out as I want to put in some undulations too.

I still can't see Eggy though.

Gents,

Thanks for the comments. It makes it worthwhile. I have putted the holes and joins and have gven the track a couple of coats. One more coat of paint and I will begin taping. Not looking forward to trying to lay it under the wide overpass but I shall see how I go.

I think that you might be able to run 1/24 scale cars on it but I don't have any so bring some up. Here's a couple of the painted track. Tabumanns black coffee. Nice and dark...

And another.

Some of you may have seen the centre speaker sitting on the track. I am going to have to leave it there as the room is a home theatre room and I have a projector which shoots onto the wall above the track and fills the entire wall. The picture just misses the speaker and is about 2.4m diagonal. I might even be able to play the le mans movie whilst racing or put the timing program on the screen. Who knows.

Merry christmas to you all and I hope we all have a little bit too much.
