I'm reviving my 40 year old 1/32 scale Revell set. 55 feet of track on a light weight 5'X12' torsion box table in my garage. The table will be on an electric winch that will raise up to the ceiling. I've selected a layout and am now about half way finished building the table.
Test of 1/4" Ventura tape on track
Test of soldering brass strip into track for power tap
I pulled the stock Revell contact rail out of the track and cut a notch in it
Brass strip under track. From here I can solder a wire on
Track numbered and awaiting table
Baltic birch plywood for table top and bottom
Taping tool for laying down tape. Sweet!
Pins on bottom of taping tool slide in track to assure easy alignment of tape on track
Laying out the 5'X12' torsion box table
Ripping the ribs for the torsion box. I don't have a table saw so I built a sled for my circular saw. Now I get nice straight consistent cuts
Pile of ribs. Main ribs (2 - 12' and 5 - 5') are 1X 1 3/4" KD pine. Secondary ribs will be 1/4" ply.
