Build Journal: Bone Breaker Valley

Clutch Wednesday, 1/5/2022

Hello everyone! I'll start at the begining, back in febuary of 2021I came across a 3Dbotmaker video, the thumbnail caught my eye, my wife suggested watcing it, so we did and i loved everything about his videos, production and the sound fx..lol loved it! made me smile, and the landscape, i was like wow! that looks awesome! It also lead me to Chaos Canyon love the custom tracks they have. im an artist by nature, dabble in alot of diffrent mediums, but never miniatures..played with hotwheels and matchboxes as a kid and had no problem playing with them again!...lol I was inspired and started planning in my head where i could build my own track and setting.

early set up before i added the jump start and the skull drop, I used more cardboard for the cliff sides and foam for detail, I came across this stuff called ortho tape, its medical grade plastertape, plastic core in the mesh, a one layer cover, sets really fast,once I got my forms up I covered it all with the ortho tape.

painted it black as a base coat,then alot of gray and white dry brushing. added the grass and sand deco. lighting, buildings..and even as it sits at this moment i will more than likely make changes or additions to the setting and track..

i actually used a skull mask  i hadcut out the lower jaw glued it onto place and covered it in ortho tape, the drop was a little bit of a challange, at 1st they were flying right off the track, because of the corner before the drop, so i angled the track on the exit of the drop, worked like a charm!

I wanted to add a 2nd jump, and thought this would be a cool start line.

Just an update on the track: i decided to add guardrails...old rusty ones

still got some more decore i want to do, but its almost where i want it.

ok here it is..short test vid..theres only sound for the 1st clip..but check it out anyways!

finally got my 3d printer! so slowly adding my deco and people

just some deco additions, this house was made completely out of card board, toothpicks for the railings, dollar tree sand paper for the shingles, this was made by a friend, who will soon be joining me on the races.

just some more deco added to the track,

Big Bomb Broadcasting's new building

UPDATE

Bone Breaker Valley is under construction at the moment, I wanted more split track racing in the begining of the race, so I've decided to revamp Big Bomb Hairpin and the straight away after the start jump. Thanks to Spool Heads Racing

i was able to print out split lane track pieces he designed, I'm currently still printing pieces to finish my corner. I'm so excited for the change, it should change the dynamics of the races, meaning more racers should be able to get past the 1st set of corners leading to the Skull Drop.

so this is where im at now, need one more straight piece for the top and a few more at the bottom, not sure if im going to take out the last banked corner before the skull drop. I will have to test it 1st.

Wow.  That is quite a wicked track you have there, amigo, very hardcore.  I like it, and you have done a hell of a job building and documenting it.  Well done.
