About 10 yrs ago I made this small routed rally track It sat for a couple of weeks on the breakfast bar of the house where we used to live untill my beloved Pamela said It cant live there any more so it was donated to Bolton slot carsand lived in Derek Howells back bed room until it eventually made its way to Pendle where it resided for some time and got ocasionaly used on kids nights .A few weeks back I dragged it out and looked at the state of disrepair ,the spectators had packed up and gone home the back drop was missing but it was still in a usable condition and the duck pond was reasonably intact so I stuck it in the back of my estate and Its now set up and awaiting restoration in the shed any way heers a few pics before I start on it ,a quick lap with a std scx 4wd is about 4.5secs ,a sorted proslot sidewinder is about .25 quicker.The old back drop was painted I might try photos for this one .

Its about 7ft long with a small L at the duck pond end.

I took a series of pics from my garden and came up with this for a back drop









I think I'll put a low relief wall or hedge in front of the back drop to add some depth and a few over hanging branches etc

Cool project, Grah! And the photos work very well!


But.... upon looking at the duck pond.... seems to be some bases without their ducks!
Road kill?

As a fairly regular visitor to GRAH1's neck of the woods in recent times (I only live about 5 miles away) I can indeed vouch for the enormous opportunity for roadkill. Yes, I have indeed heard the Hooray Henry's letting loose both barrels on occasion too. I myself would prefer some kind of auto-loading shotgun or maybe a SPAS-12, a minigun is interesting (7.62mm calibre) and a .50 calibre sniper rifle (Barrett light 50) would be wonderful, however current UK firearms legislation prevents me from owning and using such items. A 50 cal round would quite happily see off Henry's Range Rover


Graham - the photo backdrop is wonderful!! The rabbit scares me....
