Thought I would share my Raid Truck collection....
You can probably guess I quite like these, they have a lot of character about them. I think I will need to build a hill climb/ raid track to run them on.



I think I have one of each kind Ninco does, plus a SCX and Power slot Hummer and 2 Power slot quad bikes.

The yellow hummer is a Ninco with my own decals.
cheers

Nice one David. Only 10 more to go & I will have caught up with you. Indeed, I was just about to get a Ninco Hummer in Topslots' subscriber offers but it's just disappeared


They are good fun even on a flat track, but for a quick raid I put some blobs of blu-tac on the track. I can't bring myself to sprinkle sand on it though.

Cheers
Chris
These've already been posted before but no harm in dragging them up again as they might inspire:

I am inspired by all of your tracks rallyhub
My next road track is going to be based around your Dutch Trio Track

I am going to have to look for that Mobil Speedy truck looks different enough to the standard Ranger to make it worth grabbing


Chris

I want to get one of those Avant Slot trucks in the last video next.

cheers
David

Many thanks you like my tracks.
I hope soon to see some pictures of your new, Dutch Trio Track based, road track, here on Slot Forum.
Have much fun during the building process.

ive got the scx blue hummer and no word of a lie it actually managed to drive OVER a deslotted mk2 escort and keep on going. obviously it tipped over when it got to a corner but i was pretty impressed at the size of bumps it can deal with.

Added a few more to the collection




Time to build a little RAID track - thinking of something portable out of two 900x600 mdf sheets - so if you have some ideas to share

Here is a clip of my scratch built track. It is built so that 10 obstacles can be positioned per lap. I have made a wide range of obstacles that range from almost flat ones that can be driven over with a rally car with a sprung guide, moderate obstacles that the raid type vehicles with drop arms can climb / drive over to large obstacles and cars, that my "Monster Trucks" can only just handle.
All the obstacles are interchangeable and reversible. The track has a DPDt switch so the direction driven can be reversed.
So there is a vast number of permutations that the track is able to be set up with.

Thanks Dave awesome track - I like the removable obstacles idea. Whilst I mainly want somewhere to run the raid trucks I also have a nice collection of rally cars which should go well on this sort of track so a removable section is the go..

I am thinking of making the track out of two 900x600 sheets of MDF - make it easier to store and portable to take to other people's places and then if I get nutty enough modular so I can make different add ons


lots of ideas in your video - I also like the tracks of rallyhub's (Dakar) and rallyp ( http://www.slotforum.com/forums/index.php?...49946&st=15 )

cheers

Finally got around to finishing the Monster Ranger Truck - added the driver and co-pilot and some meshing and a rear wing...

happy with how it looks now

I really wish Ninco would do more of these.
I really rather like the Rangers.

Here is one of mine, Nissan truck from Revell static Easykit on Ninco Ranger chassis. It even uses the model kit wheels and tires and they grip well!?

Here is four of mine.



Another two, Schlesser and Touareg.



Managed to find a "ELF" Pro truck on sale for 350 kr (about 31£) in a hobby store the other day so one more added to the collection.

I have 14 Ninco, 2 Avant Pajero, 1 4 x 4 Avant truck, and 4 SCX. Plus a Porsche in transit.
I have been looking at the Mini' that are now starting to appear cheap,very tempted.
But at this time only one Avant Pajero, and 3 of the Ninco,s have seen any track time.
One SCX is on the bench being prepared for the track.

I have the mini and it's a very nice looking car, shame you have to stick the monther decal on yourself. They carry a hefty price tag though but I'm sure they will pop up as a sale item at some point.

Oh and totally useless on a Scalextric sport track but I bet they are a blast on a full RAID / Rally track.
