Here are some pics of my track as of a few months ago.
I have since added the Scalextric C7042 power base, modded it for appearance, added a few new structures, some new flags/flagpoles, night lighting, and actually configured some of the taller items to fold down so I can fold the track up and away when not in use. More on this later.
I use Scalextric track painted with River Rocks paint and handmake my own track borders in a sectional fashion to correspond with track pieces. Why? This table is designed to be reconfigured each year. I design thoughout the year, but generally remove the old track pieces after Xmas, sand and fill holes, repaint, and then have a new track up and running by the start of the F1 season. Because of this I have dropped the practice of making full-on scenery. All detailing is done on modular bases that screw to the table...these include structures, figures, signs, lighting and the rest. I can reconfigure these when I reconfigure the track.
In the next installation, I'll back up to document more on the fold-up nature of the track. It appears as a perfectly presentable, finished piece of furniture in my room when folded up. I like this because, living in Texas, I have scaled this hobby to make use of space that is usable 365 day a year...AC, heat, the works. It also helps to keep dust down.
