What did you use for the sandboxes?



Greetings Gunther.

Assume that you mean the sand traps by the corners? Fairly straightforward - scalextric sport borders, with black tape covering the original red markings on the kerbs. 5mm MDF boards surround the track, cut to shape and covered in grass matting. I cut the "grass" away around the borders, used PVA glue and fine sawdust to try and make the borders and traps merge into one.

A bit messy but worth the effort.

I haven't personally seen anyone else put a "paddock lane" into their lauout before.. what an incrediblely small but amazing touch. Great work.

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?

Why not look into thw SlotForum Membership Plus package? then you can store your pics here at the forum!

The silver race aston is indeed the Bond version re-worked. Front Bumper and grille removed. Mr Bond remved to a seat in the stands and replaced by a driver. A few decals added - done! Nice model now (as is the yellow version). Magnet a little too strong for my liking, will try with magnets off to see how it performs.

Beautiful stuff!!!! I love the 'buzz' in the pits. I feel like I'm there!
Can we have a full view of the pits, and a ariel? Verr nice layout, much like the old one!

Thanks for digging this thread up Graham. It was posted before I joined; so I missed out on it. What a nice looking track. I really like the use of the vintage buildings and accessories; and as others have noted, Kevin has a fine collection of cars too!
I don't like it!!!
I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!
Nice to see someone who's been collecting all the good old stuff !!!!
Thanks Guys. This brings back memories!!! Posted this originally in 2004. The original track is sadly no more following an invasion of terrorist mice in our loft. I did a "Mk2" version a couple of years ago based on a smaller table size but got bored with this because it looked good but was really dull for racing - just an oval track with an "L" extension.

So, I put many years of prejudice behind me and wondered what a layout with flyover bridges would look like. And I'm surprised how much I like it. Now I get a half-decent straight section, lots more track length, better racing and a geneal sense of more "space" on the layout.

Otherwise it's more of the same - the paddock section, acres of pickett fencing, my "supersoft" tyre barrires and older cars and buildings.

There are still some finishing touches to be done but I've taken a few quick snaps.

Room now for stuff on each side of the straight:

And I just liked the way this looked

I'll post more pics as the final touches are added if this is of interest. This will also allow me to post some gratuitous pics of my "new" old cars, but appreciate that the old stuff isn't everyones cup of tea.

Thanks Kevin. It's a lovely track with a nice approach. I love the classic cars, which originally held no interest for me until I started slot racing again. Now I see their true beauty compared to modern day blobs dictated by wind tunnels and the trendy whims of designers.

I didn't realise this was an old thread at first. I think it was accessed through the random gallery image on the home page. Anyway, I'm glad I found it and was able to share my 'find' with the others...again.
Thanks for the update Kevin. I like your new track as much as the first. You've hit the mark on integrating scenery elements with the vintage buildings and advertising. As for the cars, well they're just fantastic. Please do keep up to date on any more developements.

Graham, I chosed some other pages under "Tracks & Scenery" and found a couple of fantastic tracks!!
With 192 pages in this category there is a lot to look at!!!!

Well, are you going to share them with us, or what?

Track Index?

Nice pics, like how you go from the paddock to the grid!

Step One: drive out of paddock
Step Two: drive round track
Step Three: drive to grid

Or have I missed a vital step?
