new entry boxes at 1:32 around the perimetre of the rocket area
looking towards the heart of the city
ok i´m quite happy with the out line of the city towers and the rocket area is starting to fall into place, need to work on 2 silos (one open with missile) in 2 of the holes near the sentry´s
the back side of the city seems to be energy production and minerals at the moment, my old welders transformer makes a bold statement as some sort of electrical power centre, but as yet i´m concentrating on the other side.
one thing i do know is that the curve of the big steel dome i´ll take down in to the pit its sitting on, i like the idea that this is only the tip of the iceberg city
now looking at the track closer with a camera , i don´t actally hgave any trouble with the bigger cars being closer to the city, as long as there are no obvious scale markers (like people and doorways) then the 1:32 can pass close to the sides of the city without looking too strange.
obviously they cant go stright through it but there seems to be enough space at the sides to go from front (rockets ) to back(pits).
the question is what to do at the front and back, i will probably turn the perspective arms into rows of arches so they can be crossed, and we have the inevitable slides around the silos.
i really think they should drive into the pit , through a tunnel and some out of the other pit, but all on a faux steel gantry!!
, the tunnel from one to the other is about 50cm so any de slots in there are gettable with care
what about double level racing, flyovers and the like, could be good but see no reason as yet, maybe leave the suspended travel to the trains...what are the smallest train kits available 1:144?? for tootling around the towers in the air.
ok. so finishes, all those years ago when i set the rules for the track i said monochrome....i´d like to adjust that to tones of white AND natural materials...i´m realy liking the corten style rusted steel architecture and i have a load of brass tube that will be great for pipelines, i really don´t like painting these more ´noble materials´, and they combine well with the grey white tones and make it look more real and more abstract at the same time?????
please feel free the photo sketch a feasible track on the last foto there, (THATs why i took it...as you know if it were left to me the track would be almost undrivable, so welcome some feedback
cheers big ears sig
