Woodbrook Valley

Recommended Posts

The decision to add some French doors to the Rumpus room have prompted a deconstruct-reconstruct of the WBV layout.

The track needs to be moved to the other side of the room to allow some reno room, so here are the pics!

 

Jack and I got stuck in...

The rebuild will consist of a bridge crossover to even up the lanes for racing and add some scenic creativity

The driver's stations were along the track, they will be moved to the new section to allow marshalls a clear area to retrieve any stray cars.

Glad you've worked out a way to adjust it rather than have to scrap and rebuild.

Hmmm... would be a job and a half... certainly do-able though. :unsure:

 

Glad to see its being spared the tip... good choice.

Well, after all the fun you had ripping the 3M tape up, how could I bin it? :lol:;)


Cheers,

Dick

Schuey, I have routed the continuation of the back straight which doubles back on itself and forms a bridge, I had planned to allow a removable section to drop in a 'race day' extension, but as this was in the loop section to return to the lower straight I had problems lining it all up as I had to deal with different levels.

It's a pretty tight loop from the bridge then back under.

Here's an old pic from when I pulled up the track as to what I wanted to do.

So I'm in the middle of routing a new piece that will give me only one join... much smoother and less hassles. The extension wouldn't get used more than 2 or 3 times a year I reckon, so storage and set up was too much of a bother.

 

I have routed the first pass on one lane last night, so I'm routing the rest today.

Unfortunately when I opened the tin of Ferrodor the other day it had turned to crap... I mustn't have sealed the tin properly last time.(at least a year I reckon)

I can't justify buying another tin for the small amount of track that needs painting, so I might just color match some water based paint and make do.

 

I used some river rock paint on Jack's rally track which looks really good but might be a tad rough... I can sand it down I s'pose!

 

I'll get some pics as I go if anyone's interested.

There's been a little progress at Woodbrook Valley...

 

Track paint is Dulux River Rock which came out a little on the blue side... but as my tin of Ferrodor was stuffed I had to guess the color.

The flash used for the following pics make it look worse than it is... but it just needs some rubber layed down! The texture of the River Rock should make short work of that!!!

Just need to paint the white lane and then it's on to laying the braid and wiring up... I need to make new driver's stations too.

Hey Schuey, so am I now!

After the clean up the missus gave me a hand to add the black curtain to the table which has neatened the whole thing up too. Now the rumpus room actually looks orderly!


Cheers,

Dick

No Phil, I have soaked it in shelite to remove the leftover glue and wiped it all down so it's clean and ready to be re-laid. I will get on to the white lane this arvo, then I should be right to begin laying the braid!


Cheers,

Dick

The grit will sand off quite easy. Would be OK (and rubbers up better) with a coat of low sheen oil or waterbased clear (Hard to find these days). I would use Cabots Cabothane Satin Waterbased Polyurethane if a Low Sheen is not available.

I've been trying to come up with a better way of asking this.... :huh: but.... ummmm.... How much length have you lost, Dick? :lol:

 

:rolleyes: Sorry... I'll behave now.

Mel,

 

you're the expert..

we get a Cabots product over here called Floor clear, or some similar name - tin is in the back shed and it's cold outside.... anyway, it's meant to be the heat, sharp tools, dog, etc proof coat for wooden floors in kitchens and bathrooms.

Water based, pretty easy to apply. I brushed it last time, but might use a foam roller next time if I use it.

 

Do you still get that over there? thoughts?

Sorry Dick :rolleyes:

 

Hey Mark, Clear Floor (the old name) is now called CFP Water Based. A self leveling waterbased polyurethane. A foam roller! No! No! No! :o Foam for Oil (turps) based only - it will foam up the surfactants and cause bubbles then burst to leave little craters. We use good quality lambswool pad applicators over here but they are probably under lock and key in NZ. Not sure if Napier has reached the 80's yet but a sister company to Cabots (Intergrain) makes a product called Ultra Floor - similar but better. IMO

OTFS:

Mel, yes it did! The texture is a lot closer to my Ferrodor now... I don't think I'll bother with the clear coat as I'd have to do the Ferrodor too and I honestly can say it doesn't need it.

Anyone who's had a run on my track will tell you it's not as abrasive as some Ferrodor tracks... it's around 50% St. Enoch's - 50% Steel Grey, so there's not a lot of particulate in it. Next time you're down here invite yourself over. ;)

 

Ember:

How much length have you lost, Dick?
:rolleyes: Here we go with the Dick jokes... if you're fishing for a V32 membership you've made the perfect start!!! :lol:

:unsure: Ummm... only about 4 1/2 feet!!! :blink::lol: The area where the storage shelves were has been removed and the loop section is pretty close in length to the old forest hairpin anyway.
