Hey Guy

I'm new to the hobby was wandering if you pros could help?
I've been browsing the forums with envy and i've seen some pretty crazy layouts. AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So I thought, what if i make a pretty crazy layou myself?

I had to think about it for quite a while but finally came to a conclusion. It would be a Monaco layout and Indianapolis Motor Speedway on the same table! Of course this wouldn't work out coz one street and ones speedway. But I thought that i would have a rotating table with every fixed. (OF course) I wanna do nascar / indycar, Indianapolis. F1, Monaco. It will be made of MDF (as thin as possible), have working pit lanes and have a full on scenery and also it will be digital. If thats possible with MDF?

I'm hoping that some of you can help me on this one. Please in the comment section below or PM me some pics or layout options.

P.S the area that i have is 5x6m so it would have to fit a 4x5m table the biggest.

If i see that people are intersted in helping me, i will upload some pics of the area it will be in.

THANX Daniel

Ey Up Daniel,

Do you mean a table rotating about a horizontal axis with one track on each side ?.

That is one heck of a project for "a newbie" !!.

Don't forget that a significant characteristic of Monaco is all the elevation changes, you'll need some height to accomodate that element.

ps: are you meeting tonight on the plane ??.

Ey Up Daniel,

having thought a little more, if you were to pivot half way along the short 4m edges, then you would need 2m "swing" beneath, and above, and that is utterly impractical.

Give it some more thought old chap !!.

An even better idea would be to have a double table, the lower table being the relatively flat oval,
the upper table sitting on top, being Monaco, which lifts off and up to the ceiling on pulleys for access to the oval !!.

There you go, solved !!.
