You have seen the tower a girlfriend of my (Griet) made in the topic "LG- Super Racing Weekend"... well... my very carefull cat has passed the very nice tower... and the tower didn't prove it firmness... so it was crushed completely...

I'm sick at home so I had the time to look at the tower.... I tried to fix the tower the way Griet made it... but apparently I'm not that good... So I started the thing all over... just using the platforms of the tower... I used a bit more foam-paper (for the stability and the strongness...) because the tower will stand on a permanent track that will be clapped up against the wall with a mechanism... so it has to be quite firm...

This is what it was (Amen):



This is what I achieved so far...



















The three places of the podium are quite big... but that will be fixed today...
In that way... I like being sick...

I'll keep you posted...

the new tower looks great - not as elegant as the previous one maybe - but surely nice - and definitively nicer than anything I have managed to create so far...

IF 1:32 Schumi ever wins on your track he better not do his pattented leap!

I think it looks excellent! Lend me her...talents for a few days will ya? I've got more work to do on mine!

I think the icing on the cake for me are those railing in front of the podium - VERY cool!

Thanks for the comments guys...

Yesterday I added an extra floor to the tower... Above the VIP room I made the actual "control part" with windows that come a bit out the tower for an excellent vision on the circuit...

@ Difflock: I allmost killed the little black creep... last weekend she threw also a 1:18 scale model on the ground while jumping for flies... The problem was... The scale model was an 1:18 Vw Phaeton of AutoArt... worth approx. 120 euro's... Damn I was angry... The morrors broke off... the hood can't close anymore and the rear window is broken...

It's time for her to go to the Great Kitty Litter in the Sky!
Trashing a sacred model car is the worst crime the animal can commit!!


Is there any chance you will post pictures of your additions to the new tower, please?

Sure... I'll try to put some piccies tonight...
The top stage won't be ready yet... because the window parts have to dry quite long...

I'll try to put one extra window in the top part and add some advertising boards...

Hope it goes like planned...

On demand... some work from yesterday:





On the top come the actual "control" part... that's were the windows come slightly out of the building. One window is allready fixed... 3 others to go... (this is not an easy part):


A view like the "visitors" will see the tower:


There is still lots and lots to do... but that'll come...
Hope it is soon, hope I have some time tonight...

Has Griet gone to kill your cat?

No she hasn't. In fact, she wants a cat of her own... Girls, go figure...

Anyway, I'm very, very afraid. I'll keep my models locked away... Thank God not every cat is as bad and black as Diesel, tDI-Fahrer's cat...

Btw tDI , very nice save on the tower. I might convince Griet to build a grandstand or something, would be nice 2 I think. But only if you keep Diesel locked away...

SRAPaul:
They would look great on the podium!!!
When I start building the permanent track... I'll buy some more figures...
But now I only use them to put in buildings to check if the scale is good or not.

Some piccies (hadn't had much time the past few days):

In the top section I just have to put one more window in and then I can start putting the advertisment boards on it.



What I did also was preparing the "press room" where the racers can give the interviews:

Seen through the window:


From the top:


An old Le Mans car welcomes the VIP Guests:


That's it for now... maybe I can do something tomorrow

Cheers

Thanks guys... I really appreciate this!

Both the tower and the pits will get more details soon!
I want to make "cabins" on the pitwall, equipment for the mechanics, tables and stuff in the vip room, and some interior work in the "control-section" of the tower.

Updates will follow!
