That is looking fantastic Dick. Congratulation on a great piece of work. BTW, where did you get the templates for the street signs. I have been looking for a while and cant find the Strayan ones, just American and European.

 

Regards

 

John

Love that first shot of today's series. And it seems like Australia has a new 'big thing' on it's tourist trap list.

 

Yngwie, any ideas which ones you want? I've, not surprisingly, probably got most of them.


Computers. They'll never catch on.

Yngwie, I have a sheet of the signs in a Word doc. If you want them I can e-mail them to you.

Send me a PM with your e-mail address if you want them.

Nathan, I don't have the control box at my place atm, so even if I did have it sorted, I'd have no timing anyway.

The track is rewired and running, lapping fine.

 

I was suprised to read this piece of sarcasm:

i mean we need a pub on the track when we have a v32 race, dont we

 

Hmm... spotlights working fine.... tell me if it's too bright.

 

Once Slotts got some time I will get him over to look at some of the other timing programs, so Stopline may have called its last track call here!

Oh, Moe....

Haven't had a lot of time out in the room, but a bit here and a bit there.

I have started on a church at Jack's request, (Modelling loosely off one a few K's from home in an undeveloped area, still quite rural...)

Also Jack's Fresh Fish 'n' Chip shop (!) and there'll be a bakery and a butcher's along the same lines as the general store.

 

I had a go at making the footpaths last night. Using foamboard I put down a layer of joint compound a few weeks ago.

I scribed some expansion joints with the sharp end of a bamboo skewer, then added some cracking in the corners of the concrete.

The joint compound is an off white/cream colour, so I made up a very light black/grey wash and brushed it on, dragging a cloth over it to add some streaking.

The cracks have taken the wash a little darker and I must say I was pretty happy with it.

I have the pub and general store sitting on one section, I'll get a pic tonight.

 

I think I need a week off work to get stuck in, but I doubt that will happen any time soon.

 

I'll get some pics tonight if anyone wants them.

 

Cheers,

Dick

Here's a few pics of the concrete... after 24hrs it seems the detail has been absorbed by the joint compound so I might have to go over it with a fine brush.

Tell you what Jarrod, you supply some pics of the outside and a few of the inside too, and I'll do it!

It'll have to be a small one though as I'm running out of room and I don't want it to end up looking like a Pommy loft track! Too cluttered... you know?


Cheers,

Dick
