Circuit du Jacky Ickx

I started messing around with layouts back in summer after my good dad built me a table set up in the garage.

Finally decided, a compromise on circuitry as I want scenery more, on this:

Named after the sportscar legend, Circuit du Jacky Ickx will be set in imaginary Belgium during the mid seventies.

I'm using scaley sport (
) purely because I have it. The borders will be sprayed black and the curbs be black and white instead of the red and white as standard.

Elevation will be from the topmost esses upwards, then a downhill hairpin towards the end.

I'll post progress as I make it!

Thanks Fergy!

I tried to photograph them form the other end but it didn't work

I'll try open the garage door when its stopped raining and see if theres a better veiw form there.

Thanks for all the kind words!

They uphill esses is just R2, as on the plan. It does look like R1, now you mention it Rene. I think its my poor photography!

I'll try and get a better shot of the elevation changes tomorow. I'll be working on 'filling the gaps' and building the hills, rockfaces etc.

Sorry for the lack of updates, It took me a while to source some suitable (and cost effective) chicken wire.


Have added 'rock faces' to the elevation:

The 'hole' after the esses is going to be a tunnel.

I'm making a few buildings, and also cannabalising some old style plastic pit buildings.

Next up:

Curb modifying and painting/grassing the table.
