I have 3/4 done all the fences, not shown, with 3 layers of 3mm MDF and 9mm MDF on the straights .It should be ready for it's undercoat by the end of the week. Note the lane spacing 105 mm and the eliptical routing on the corners. Courtesy of Alan Hales jigs.

good to see someone building a 1/32 scale track using the methods that are used on 1/24 style tracks. should be a great track to race on. keep up the good work.

Some of the slot blokes I know think a spirit level is something to do with their drinking capabilities or their religious beliefs. :alcohol:

Ferrodore of course! I will post some pictures tonight of the jigs I have been using for the eliptical routing now that I have worked out how to use photo bucket. These jigs only really work on ribbon style tracks but I suppose that one could be adapted for use on a board style track.

Should be ready for the Xmas 500 Syd!!!
That should be enough laps to run her in.

Nice Chrissy present for yourself!
Well done so far.
