Hi There,

A friend of mine dropped into a nearby model shop (Gaugemaster) the other day, and mentioned to me that he had seen some new building kits in 1:32 for slot car circuits.

I was passing by the other day and stopped to have a look. The company is called PROSES (they have a website) and they do a selection of really nicely produced buildings.

I couldn't resist a set of billboards and below are a few images. Easy to build (ten-minutes for the first one) and with a lick of paint I think they will look really good on my circuit.

See for yourself,







Best Regards,

Chris.

This company is one of this sites advertisers/sponsors. (They also make a tyre cleaner/truer.)

See see bottom of resources page for site sponsors and further details of this company's range of products.

Ideal for a layout with an American 1950/60 feel to it.

Cheers,
Philip

Should they be painted before gluing or the other way around?
I have the start/finish gantry and need to paint the inside but did not know if this would affect the glue securing it together if I sprayed the sheets first.
Any suggestions?
Cheers!

Hi Sealevel

I painted my billboards after glueing because I could reach everything.

I suggest that if I were doing the gantry I would I would paint first - impossible to reach inside afterwards judging by the pictures.

I used a small dob of thick superglue as adehsive and I'm pretty sure that it would not be affected by painting first.

Best Regards,

Chris

Hi ,
I have a long experience in aircraft static modeling. I suggest that you assemble and paint in steps. That is assemble the billboard poles with glue. Let it dry. Paint it. Let it dry. Add the bilboard picture.

regards

Thanks for the advice - I think its probobly more appropriate for the start gantry as it is a bit more complicated - the billboards really are very simple to construct and I have underoated them this morning wth an white acrylic spray as a base for the paint - worked fine.

Maybe for the gantry I would glue two of the four sides together on each of the three sections and then paint and then build and touch up afterwards.

Best Regards,

Chris

Thanks, Porsche904/Chris.

I am planning to install my start lights in the gantry so will need to paint before FINAL gluing but glue AFTER installing the wiring.
This should be a challenge since I have not done any modelling work for over 30 years.

Thanks again.
Cheers!
