Are the figures from the "Hoodz" range? I've heard people use those but have never been clear on their scale.

Very, very cool Mark.

I know I've seen pictures of your track before. And we have corresponded. I thought it was on SF (... maybe it was SCI).

I remember your layout was superbly detailed and you had some very cool looking trees made from branches indigenous to AZ... What kind were they?

Anyway this forum is the absolute best. Welcome aboard!

Regards,
Steve

hi rob the wagon is made by "sunny" i found it on ebay while looking for "homies"
i visited your website and your a man after my own heart, like your foam
barriers article. much of my scenery comes, from discount, or home improvement stores, my track has more of a retro look with a few anacronisms thrown in. i will
try to post more track pics in the future. thanks for the complement.

Yes, it could have been SCG. Purple sage, right. I've harvested some azalea and boxwood from my garden and I think they'll look great, but variety is the spice of life.

First, I need to extend the length of one table another 13" and then I'm going to start landscaping my track. I've been working kind of backwards, making assorted buildings from scratch - pit lane, snack shack, grandstands. They're all in various states of completion.

Have a look - http://www.slotforum.com/forums/index.php?..._album&album=35

hi steve
i guess we just did things in reverse order, i really like your overhanging tower snack
shack and lighting in you pits. did we talk about dumpsters and large shell insignias, because ive got them on my track also, whatever the case youve done an excellent job! the thing i really envy is your long straightaway. if you ever want to confer again please feel free.
