I am currently working on my pit lane for my track, i was wondering if anyone has any photos of the inside of a pit garage. i would like to try and add a bit of detail.

Not sure if i will make the tool chests out of balsa or print them off from the PC and stick them in.

I have finished the 2 of he 6 buildings, only 4 more to go...

Thanks

Hi ScalextricRacer,

Sorry I can't provide pictures from inside the pits but do you know that you can download cardboard designs for boxes, cupboards etc. on a german website ?

I must look for the link, I will post when I find it back.

ScalextricRacer, there is a topic about posting pictures here, and there is an article in the resources section here.

Personally I use Photobucket for hosting pictures, but from what I remember there are links to other similar sites in both the topic and the article.

Yes, I meant the site provided by TDI Fahrer ... It looks like they have produced a CDR as well by now. I didn't check if the download is still possible. I hope it is ...

i use www.yoxio.com to host pictures, sems quite good to put a photo on a forum you put [img.] then the url of photo here then [/img.] but leave out the full stops after that i've put in so that i can post it

Like Roadkill, I use Photobucket. They have virtually no restrictions on how you use the images (you can even link to pics there from your own web site to save on space) and they allow you an incredibly generous amount of storage. You can even copy and paste links that they give you right into this forum! Photobucket gets
from me.


The Carrera site is indeed still active and is a great source. Not speaking German though, it takes me awhile to cruise around!


Scalextricracer, we await your photos!

TIP
Download the Google Toolbar and you get a new option on right clicking a foreign web page:
"Translate into English"
Machine translations of course and can't handle ALL languages, but it's very handy.
I recommend it.

Also, many thanks to Andy for providing another Photo Hosting site.
The more the merrier of those!

Tropi, you obviously understand Google translations better than me. I did better navigating the German site!

FYI - -just some quick translations - and if you're not shure about some expressions - -use leo - the best online-dictitionary I know - for german - english or german - french - vice-versa!
Startseite = home
Tipps & Tricks = tips and tricks

Elektronik = electronics (seems to be a very easy translation)
Gebäude & Deko = buildings and decoration
Kontakte = contact
Wissenswertes = knowledge
Bilder = pictures
Neu bei uns = new on the page
Just surf around in the building-section, look for all the things available there. Frank even offers a CD with all these buildings to save you the time to download - -and on the CD are some buildings not shown on his webside.
