Hi,

I will be starting the papier mache for the mountains on my track this weekend but here are some progress pictures of my track I satrted this week. The track is on split boards that will now permanently stay together, the power is standard scalextric, may be changed at a later date. I still haven't thought of a name yet so if any of you can help that would be great.

Layout nailed in place


Masked of ready to paint


Neatly cut around the rails


In the process of painting


Overall Look after 1 day of work


Borders have started to be made and I will post more progress of the mountain work over the weekend.

Thanks from,

Mike.

Looks good.

I am not sure i would have painted the track until i had the surrounding areas in place to get the continuous snow drift effect. What was your reasoning for doing it like that?

I wanted to give the track a paint first then when the mountains are put up I will paint them all again to give a continuoius mountainous effect.

Thanks from,

Mike.

I wanted the theme to be a bit like the El Capitan race track but the actual design is just made up. It will be fully scenic with mountains and a paddock.

Thanks from,

Mike.

As Mike seems to be offline here is a quick RMS of the layout, which is better to drive on than it looks.



I hope you like it. This is not exactly correct and may have to be verified by Corvette but I would only be a quarter straight out.

I am not sure which one is the best.
They all sound abit weird but I have used different parts of my location and name e.t.c.
