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

Hi Daniel
Welcome to the slot forum.

Not sure I've understood your idea of a rotating table - are you talking about a a table that flips over with one layout on the top and the other on the bottom?

4x5m is a big table, it'll need quite a few legs and some quite substantial supports. Not a problem with one fixed table, but I've not got my head round how it would work as a rotating table.
The other thing about a 4x5m table is access to the middle. That's much to far to reach without crawling on the top of it. Tracks that size are normally built with walk ways or access holes in the middle so you can get to the track for building and maintenance.

Yes its doable in MDF, but don't go too thin - I suggest 12mm is suitable.
