Hey, this is a build journal of the Lotta Speed Strip.
That's a good start!
The paper mache coating is all done, now I can start on the painting part
I just started painting, and it is almost done. I'll send pictures on the finished painted product.
Two cars hitting the tees at the end:
I'v decided to paint my track grey. It's not done yet, but will be soon. I am using acrylic, and I've already done 1/2 lanes. What I did was get a chisle sponge brush, and did it very bumpy and rough, then my 2nd layer, I got an actual smooth bristle brush and did it over the rough stuff.
I thought that the tees would be a good way to stop cars. This keeps the vehichles not too damaged (The worst that has ever happened to me with theese so far is about 1/150 sq in. of paint removed), it's loud sound also helps to see who won.
I have been thinking of inserting the tees on the sides in the 'grass,' then putting a rubber band across the two so that way the cars will just bounce back, no damage, just a bit harder to declare who wins.

Am working on the background now!
