Outback Adventure

Hi all that may be interested.

Had this space under my existing Carrera digital track (The Roller Coaster) and thought instead of filling it with storage boxed and alike I would put it to a more practical use.
The odd shape is due to a disused fireplace (now you push a button and the aircon does the rest) - was thinking of removing it but remembered that it served two purposes 1. Fireplace 2. Support for the room above - so it stays.
The space is made up of 3 section - from left to right (width first) 1.2M X 1M, 1.2M X .45M and .90M X 1M.

I have two 4 wheel drive cars, a Humber and a Pajero so thought I would like a nice outback run with lots of hilly bits and obstacles.

Found a SCX off-road raid track up for auction so I put a bid in and won, at a very cheap price (included another Pajero and a VW Touareg) so I got building a frame from 50mm square pine (found it in the garage) and then bought some 9mm MDF and some wheels and a track is born, now called "Outback Adventure".

Need 4 additional R2 curves to complete the track and they should arrive this week.

Probably wont do much for a few weeks yet as I want to run it for a while and make any configuration adjustment before I start the landscaping.

As I have a mismatch of track I wanted to paint it all the one colour - would appreciate your input on track preparation and type of paint to use.

Cheers from AUS
