Jimmy and his girls are looking quite relaxed at the moment. Are the girls still so relaxed come race day?

Good to see some fresh pics KK. The eroding cuttings look good. Should there, perhaps, be some of the colour from them mixed with the sand at the edge of the track?

Yes you are right! I shouldn't rest on my laurels... goes back to Tileguy's ideom that you don't see some issues until you take a photo.

 

I might have to do a sample piece and see how to make it look natural.

Great scenery KK. IMO it is a great part of building a track.

Love the detail you have included KK, like the walking path that follows the track!

Looks just like the real deal (just not as steep!!!)

 

My fave...

Just wouldn't be The Elbow without the Dunlop sign... well done!

Looking very good mate.

Perfect backdrop. Another touch of authenticity.

Thanks everybody. It's nice to think it came off, as I've had these photos waiting for a couple of years.

 

Dick, this photo makes me think I need to do my guardrails like yours! Mine just look plastic...

KK, you'll need to get some Scaley Sport rails... slice the posts off them and slice the rails apart.

Some 5mm square bead moulding painted silver (paint 'em when you spray the rails!) and with a pin vice drill a hole in the posts with a very fine bit.

I then add a drop of superglue in the hole and push a dress making pin (thanks Mrs Knoath!) through the rail into the post. Cut off excess pin.

 

Bob's your Mum's brother!

 

Looking seriously good mate! That shot of Reid Park is just awesome!

Where's the tree?

 

Dick


Cheers,

Dick

No photos - I've been distracted with cars and dioramas and such.

I made some food stalls and a bit on the hairpin, but its not finished yet. Need to make time.

Time is a while just waiting to be extended, and a track connected is a thing of beauty,just waiting to be extended. Go figure.

 

Thanks for that KK.
