Fraser Ridge Testing June 2020
Fraser Ridge Gets A touch of Thunderbirds.
All Gerry Anderson productions had great action over the top sound and fantastic models and special effects. So while testing my track for 4 car racing I put together this little Gerry Anderson Thunderbird Special
All change on Fraser Ridge Raceway. After testing all types of cars down the track, I'm happy with the overall configuration of the track with the approaches in and out of the corners settled. It was time to seal and paint the Styrofoam structure.. having put the base coats and a few washes here and there I have started to work on some of the finer detail like the retaining wall on the top section and the entrance and exit to the tunnel section. Still got a lot to do, but generally i am happy with the progress to date.
Fraser Ridge Raceway gets some additional detail in the form of 3 team garages so that all the competitotors can prepare their team cars before and during a racing event.
It's some of the smaller things that make the difference. One of the garages on Fraser Ridge gets some additional toolboxes, workbench, jack, hoist, rack, cupboard and car lifts.
Planting out of trees and bushes further up the peak of Fraser Ridge.
Fraser Ridge Raceway signage installed.
Shell advertising boards leveled off. Planting of trees and bushes around tunnel exit.
Planting started below and around the Fraser Ridge Raceway signage.
Making pine trees from coconut fiber from hanging basket liners, some bamboo skewers, spray glue, spray paint and coarse flock.
A day away from making trees and turn my attention to making advertising boards. Tools of choice, photo paper, cardstock, spray adhesive, plastic chopsticks and hot glue gun.
