Having a week of vacation this past week I was able to make more progress with the track scenery. Still in the beginning stages but I was able to get all of the neoprene borders down and painted, the backing for the scenery cut and most of the screening done. Having the time off really helped though.

Very nice, I like the gradients and the flowing nature of the circuit.

It definatly does john when I have finalised my carrera track I will be painting it with the same grey paint as we used on the club track I have painted plastic track in the past with household paint and also sandtex with good results , the problem with sandtex is when you roll your paint takes a scraping
Using paint on plastic track also lets yo use the same tyre addatives you run at the club ,the grip always seems more even

Thanks for the compliments guys. I am going to be working on the landscape with plaster the next couple days so I will see how bad I am since never done it before.
As far as traction with the painted track I dont notice too much of a difference on mine. I used a Latex primer and put on very light almost dry coats. Although the pics dont show it it has a graded effect to it the way some brush strokes can be seen like a real concrete road would have. I will post more as I progress with the plaster.

Well here is the first look at my scenery. The plaster didnt work out very well and I ended up finally finding Sculptamold that really makes it easier and alot of fun doing this. I also have to give David (dreinecke) many thanks with all of his helpful answers to my many questions on getting this far.
