Hey Dick, perhaps we can investigate that handicapping option we talked about, and add in Mark too.....;-)


Cheers

Thanks Falcon... need to paint all the side walls inside and out.

Have some more billboards to print off and maybe a few more fence signs too.

 

The black from my printer doesn't like drying very well.... it smudges when you touch it...., so I need to spray some Matt Clear (just picked it up from Bunnings) over the top, then the Dunlop sign and QANTAS fence signs can go up.

 

Would like a few more trees too... better get onto that.

 

Where's that to do list... :rolleyes:


Cheers,

Dick

Keep at it Dick!

 

You've been busy with those shrubs in the first pic. Are they three different shades of Woodland Scenics or did you make your own?

 

That continuous strip of 'Holden' signs gives a good sweeping look to it.

 

(Did you manage to get to Sandown for the great Ford result?) :lol:

@KarKraft... err... no... :lol: (sm*rt*rse!!!) :lol:

The shrubs are just seat cushion foam put through a blender (add different shades of water based paint to get color).

 

The only Woodlands Scenics on my track are the foliage on the gums (Which I could have used better, next time!) and some fine turf sprinkled over the home made trees for color variation.

The rest is all home made from whatever I could find cheaply!!!

 

@beastm, yes they are, but it'll mostly be hidden by billboards by the time I'm finished, so I thought against it...

I have painted the scenery boards sky blue... may add some clouds.

I positioned the new billboards and trees for some pics... need to make more trees now.

As always, well done Knoath.

 

Some of those pics almost look real.

very, very impressive. Strangely I think my favorite part is the white line along the edge of the track, and the fact it isn't pristine perfect. Looks brilliant.

 

I was having a look at your track at work the other day, and one of the guys walked by and saw it. Now he's coming out racing on Tuesday. Your track has inspired another slot head. Good work.


Beauty.

That's because of all the slot cars sliding around corners leaning on the fences :):lol: Great work dick the track just keeps getting better

Well done!

This one is my fav Dick. The way the Supercheap sign is neatly framed with a white border and the trees gives it that 1:1 feel. Is AM about to punt Janey in the door? Shades of Warwick Farm or Calder in the early '70s :lol:

Thanks KarKraft...sorry about the crappy pic... lighting is pretty poor.

Thought you'd like that one!

I never thought Calder Park, but Hmmm.... that could work...

 

 

Is AM about to punt Janey in the door?

Ha!!! Probably!!! :angry::P:angry:

Well, I have to remove all the fences, billboards, trees and gantry after one last blast tonight .

The track has been sold and is leaving in the morning.

 

Sad to see her go, I've learnt a lot during the build.

 

I hope the new owner has no dramas with the transport of the track and has many hours of fun with it.


Cheers,

Dick
