This is my main SSD track, all copper tapped up. Probally why I have a bad back




Hope these pictures come out ok, its been a while since I last used photobucket.

Looks good. While a plan / overview would be great I'm more curious about the angled posts in the center of the layout.

Wish I had enough space for one decent track, never mind two! Both looking good, I must live relatively near you, don't want to intrude, but if you are ever having an "Open House", I'd love to see them in the plastic,

I was hoping to have some time tonight for landscaping but did not finish work till late. To answer some of the question:

Bleep, Zero5, Jwait. I can give you an over view shot of the analogue track but the SSD is to big. Can anyone recommend track design software thats ok with Vista ?.



JWait. The posts that you can see hold the roof up. Its all in the loft.

JeffSCXd. The sizes are: Analogue 1.9m x 1.9m. SSD 1.8m x 5.5m. Hopefully soon I will post the track plans.

Slotrace.dk. Here are some pictures of the pit lane. This track was completed a while ago, I did post some pictures back then. There have been a few changes to the track with the main being digital and copper tape.




Bleep. Working pits would be nice but I only have six chipped cars at present so my time and money is being used on hopefully chipping atleast another 20 cars.


Here are some more pictures of both the tracks.

Two very nice looking tracks. Excellent Work


Can I ask a couple of questions. In the pic featuring the Porsche and the Astons what material did you use for the fencing? Also, what did you use to secure the Scaley borders to the infield (same pic).

Cheers
Mikey..

Hi Mikey,

The fence is from B&Q, its a metal mesh. £10 a sheet for approx 1m Sq.

The scaley barriers are nailed down on both ends. Just drill a 3mm hole down the outer edge and put a long panel pin through it.

Hi slicknik.

The DTM Astra is a static model from Revell. I warmed up the front over a gas burner then used a large screw driver to push the front of the car in.
The windscreen is just scratched using a sharp wood screw and on the wheel arches/sills I applied a bit of silver paint.

Thanks for all the interest, I'm hoping to have some time this weekend for a bit more finishing off.

Paul.
