1st steps into building my diecast raceway

Playz Tuesday, 6/29/2021

New guy to site long time collector and I kinda needed to do more with the cars I love so much. And of course it all started with 3d and his glorious racing videos, like so many others.

anyways made a silly little video of as title says 1st steps before we start building properly...

all just testing and trialing size and design ideas, nothing set in stone yet 

Iets see where it goes

just started the build. All very rough at the moment figuring out heights and how to piece various bits together. 

tough part is I wanted to be compact in width so as track loops underneath itself  I have to figure out how to brace the track above it without obstructing the view below.

anyways no real rush apart from wanting to have it done yesterday...

I'm back on the job today, see how far I get.

  • A great start! Good idea to have the track layered on top of itself to reduce its footprint. — H3zzard
  • That layered footprint is the way to go, makes it nice and compact without sacrificing track length. This is going to be quite the killer track! — SpyDude

Hi, track is making progres, orders for various diorama stuff is on its way and in my free time I am trying to learn how to make half decent videos. Novice is not even close, I would like to move up to that level soon! 

Any help with video creation is welcome...

New learning video...its like when the kids bring home some scribble as their masterpiece. Be kind LOL
