First off I better say thanks to the missus for supporting me. She was the one that encouraged me to make a thread about my build because to be honest Id rather be building it than posting on
a forum but hey I guess some of you would like to see it. So lets get on with it.
The design was made on Autocad and was in the making on and off for about a year. I have used artistic license on the layout to fit in with my requirements. i.e. dismantlable and no bigger than 6' x 12'.
I wanted a track with as long a lane as possible and use the ROC format but also be able to have longer races so the lane spacing is 50mm going to 100mm on the straights and 2 passing points.
Lanes are yellow and red
Barrier Blue (which will be routed also and strips of hardboard glued in)
Lane lengths are in the top left corner in mm
Progress so far
As you can see I work in a single car garage so logistics is a nightmare.
I dont plan on going too indepth with the build but occasional updates when there is something worth showing, but if you have any questions or comments I will try my best to answer them.
Wow, over 2 months since my last post.
As you all can guess progress has been a little slow.
I have been doing little bits as and when I can.
I have very nearly finished all the painting and copper taping.
Will post up photos in the next couple of days of the other 2 painted sections.
The track looks great and is very neat which makes it look more like a piece of furniture. The motif of the track is probably one of the best for home tracks if one wants to have the track to be as close as possible to the 1-1 counterpart.
