I was looking through some old photos today & stumbled across these shots of my bedroom track from when I was stationed on Guam
with the Navy (71-73). I think I cut up some sort of wall board with a jig-saw & nailed it to ply-wood set on cardboard boxes for
the track. The tape is lead burglar alarm tape used on glass windows at the time. The Special Svcs. slot track had just closed, so I
found the Chief in charge & bought up the supplies they had. Some Aurora 10v transformers, some threaded wheels, guides, gears, Mabuchi 16D
motors, threaded axles & wheels, on-off button controllers & some sort of tires.
I made tubing by wrapping phone wire around an axle & soldering it solid. Used AMT kits that were available for building modifieds.
(Still my passion) The scenery was balled up newspaper I covered with flour & water & spray painted.
The lichen bushes grew anywhere on the island. I don't remember what the rest of the junk was made from.
I still have a couple of the guides from the "way back years".
