New Layout Under Construction

Recommended Posts

Following on from my 'introduction post'

Just started working on this so not a lot to show really.

It's just for me and my 8 year old son to mess about on so don't expect the detail of some of the tracks on here. (Probably more due to me being a complete novice and not having any patience to speak of) ;)

As long as it looks a bit more realistic than racing on a bedroom carpet, that's good enough.


Anyway, I'll start with the track plan.

It's a modified figure 8 with both lanes identical in length. 14M per lane.

Only 33mm off but thankyou scally for being a bit flexible ;)





Parts list.


Scalextric Sport Straight C8205 19

Scalextric Sport 1/2 straight C8207 8

Scalextric Sport 1/4 straight C8200 1

Scalextric Sport power supply 1 C8217 1

Scalextric Sport curve 1 C8202 6

Scalextric Sport curve 2 C8206 22

Here's the track layout on a board.

We didn't want a long skinny track but also needed access to all points so the kids can get derailed cars.

That's when I came up with the idea of a Z shape.

All corners can be easily reached and it still doesn't take up the whole garage as I need to get the car and kids bikes in ect.



Getting the layout on the board.



...And after i got the track temporarily supported so we can check how it runs and if we like it.



Nothing is actually permanently fixed yet but we're happy with the layout.

Now comes my nightmare of making it look half decent. ;)

Welcome. And congratulations on taking the plunge. Like the layout. Great idea on the z layout for access.


Happy motoring.

Thats looking good, i like the tunnel at the back though it might be a bit hard getting deslots out of there...




That tunnel is still there but has been shortened. It's also only straight underneath so deslots shouldn't be a problem.


BTW, here's a mock up of the tunnel and bridge entries.
