Hi freaks,

something new out of my basement after being little bit unlucky with the Targa Strada Del Vino. It is once more a targa theme, scorpius based, little bit smaller this time (to have a chance to get it finished this time). Central item might be a little village, suburbian style, lets say from the late 1960s. But thats far in future. This is what I have untill now:







The area where the truck is located might be the space for the futur village...
Any thoughts welcome.

Regards Jens

Hi all,

thank you for your positive feedback. @Lasp: There will be 6 lanechangers allowing best lane. It can be handled with Scorpius wireless. Length of both lanes is about 8.8m (about 29ft), best lane is a little bit shorter. Elevations are up to 0.35m (about 1 foot).

Regards Jens

Hi girls and boys
... worked little more today: Some sanding and painting. Some more weathering and highlighting needed but not too bad in my opinion so far.



@Slots-o-fun: Elevations are definite now - they will look like this:



Hope you enjoy it. I do!
Regards Jens

Excellent work on the road painting.

I'm wondering how you're doing the routed lane changers. That's my question with my own routed digital.

Hi Bill,

LCs are handmade from 6mm aluminium (takes some time, but worth every minute). Combined with switchmachine from peco and electronics from scorpius (or whatever you use) and it should work. Scorpius is providing a plan how it might be assembled:

Beautiful work!

Are the Ferrari and Toyota both Racer cars? Great photo, just curious regarding the scale of the two cars.

Look forward to your next installment, Freak!

Hi RecklessRacer, hi all.

thank you for your positive comments. The Toyota is a RACER, the 250GTO was made by FLY. I love both brands for their detailing, most I like the Racers as they have a slot.it chassis and they really are a blast to drive. Many of the Flys look great but dont drive good without tuning. Racers are extremely expensive and the Toyota therefore is the only one I own untill now. I only use it for "recreational cruising" as i dont want to crash it. I preordered a GTO250 from Racer, too but it didnt arrive yet...



Regards Jens

Hallo Frank, yes, building them on my own will be one of my future goals. As my time is little I first try to finish the electric part of my track, some scenery then and after all the village. When finished all of that a real nice resin-scratch will be next. For now I am little bit frightend because I did it never before...but I would like to take some photos with your cars when the track is finished...

Hallo Christian, thanks!

Regards Jens

Hello girls and boys,

some little update: Put on all the coppertape, assembled and build in all flippers. They are ready for connection with lanebrains now. Much more wireing and miles of cable needed, but I am happy with the result so far.

This is looking really good! I love these wide-angle shots. That last one is very impressive, shows the cool best line options well. Paint job looks superb! Thanks!
