once again my whole post seems to be in the title.

Basically I am after the dimensions of the roof of this building, ideally in millimeters, if anyone can help, it would be much appreciated!

the reason I need the dimensions are long and complicated, but basically I need it to make a platform for my camera crew

Cheers

Dave

It's better not to ask how my original question comes into this, suffice it to say that it was needed.

I wanted one of these so my camera crew (mrrc) could be positioned over the track for a good camera angle:


The boom lifter truck is available from britains as a 1:32 die cast, but needed to build the man-lift cage. Not having the camera crew with me, needed the dimensions to calculate the size of the platform required, and have now made this:


Its not yet painted, doesn't have the camera crew in it, and will have a dunlop banner across where the 1:1 pic has a 'rent me' banner.

Thanks again for the measurements

Thanks LMP - or thanks on behalf of Hugs, for it is her circuit.

Yes it is one of the Fly saleens, my favourite livery. A266 Spanish GT 2002 Vodaphone, still available as far as I know

Cheers

it is a genuine scalextric grandstand, hugs and I replaced the cardboard spectators with cardboard seats, and put a staircase on the outside. I think the camerA has made the lines look not straight

the seats do not come in the set, neither do the doors. Seats are made out of folded card, the doors are printed with a colour printer and glued on

I did print out some posters, but hugs didn't want them!!!! Maybe when she sees your advice, she will change her mind!

prize? how about my 1966-1970 collection of 1:32 copies of playboy? I'm afraid my 1:32 mechanics have already removed the centre-spreads for moral boosting purposes
