Fabulous track! Love the detail and theme of the place. Especially like the paddock area in addition to the pit lane, very reminiscent from my visit to Goodwood

cheers

Excellent Track Kevin, and Welcome to the Forum.

Anyone with a white Healey in their collection is top notch in my book.

Regards

Alan

I suspect they are the cast iron tables and chairs from Scale Link (about 2/3 the way down) - I haven't tried them myself but they do look superb in Kevin's layout

Hi - the tables are plastic.

I came across a range of model railway froma German company called POLA. They do a very impressive range of accessories in "G" gauge. G Gauge is about 1/32 and some of the POLA stuff is very effective (an very reasonably priced).

Most of the white picket fencing you can see around the pit area is from the same range. It costs about £12 for 8 sections of fencing, but the good news is that you can assemble almost any width and configuration of gate - they're all over the place on my layout.

You can check out some of the POLA stuff on the Gaugemaster website.

I've also used some other railway stuff - the old advertisement boards for example. I'll add some more info in response to the other posts.

Cheers

Kevin

Hi Nuro.

Some of the figures did take a while, to paint, but the best ones are the pre-painted figures from Presier. These aren't cheap, but no other figures come close in my view. They also have fair number of "period" looking figures which go well with the overall feel I was trying to create.

Other figures are the ususal suspects - Scalextric, MRRC, SRA. There are some other additions from Britains, and some "conscientious objectors" from the Tamya 1/35 miltary range who prefer motor racing!

TOP track!
I reckon you capture the feel of the era perfectly and that is a NICE field of cars! Glad to see the silver race Aston, is that a much deserved rework of the Bond version? or a repaint of the yellow?

Cheers Gary. The paddock track works as well - it isn't just for show. The lane that leads out to the track has it's own power source via a power boster cable. The second lane finishes just before the entrance gate and is "dead" but makes a good parking slot (and stops them all crashng into each other...)
