I Love these buildings. Martin and Chris at Magnetics Racing are killing me because I always have to order the new ones when they come out.

I paint all mine in the almond and orange color theme for my Coyote Lakes Raceway. I add LED light strips to each, add furniture and figures. I use those little 1/16" magnets from wargamers to make the roofs detachable. My track is not built yet so I spend my time working cars and scenery.
A couple of pics are attached. I also have built the Grandstands, GP Building, Ticket booth and four Pit buildings. Have yet to build the Tower.
These buildings are Half Fast Slotter approved!

Off topic, but Chappy when you're able, replace that one flexible duct line. You're losing a lot of airflow wherever it's going. Smooth pipe and elbows are better than flex.

We have just released another building to the range. We realised the #006 Dunlop crosswalk is only for large tracks, so we have done a smaller one. We thought we would give the other tyre manufacturers a look in so changed the logo to Firestone! Its available on ebay UK for £48 + postage (search for Magnetic Racing). The span is just wide enough to go across a 4 lane scalextric track, but is particularly suitable for use across the corner of say an 8' x 4' two lane track. Once more it has all the internal stair detail.

I like their stuff but they won't remove the VAT for me.

Its the same price on ebay, so they may have to keep the price the same as part of the ebay agreement. I see on their website they advertise the ebay store, but allow you to contact them if the item is not in stock on ebay.
Even with the VAT they are good value DB. The kits go together so nicely and look so good when completed.

It is impossible for any UK company to offer you VAT free for the following reasons:-

1) The UK does not permit VAT free selling for internet sales.
2) You have to visit the UK, purchase goods then claim the VAT back at the airport.

Here is the link to the Government website outlining the rules for VAT free shopping in the UK.

[url=UK Tax free shopping]https://www.gov.uk/tax-on-shopping/taxfree-shopping[/url]

It is also against eBay rules for us to link directly to our site with products for sale. It is possible for us to direct you from eBay to our site to give further information on the products. So we are allowed to say "Visit the Magnetic Racing website for further product details"

We do offer a small discount on direct sales as we can save a little on ebay costs and can combine postage on multiple items.

A couple more pictures to post showing my construction of the great structures from Magnetics Racing. They continue my almond and orange Coyote Lakes Raceway theme. All enclosed buildings have cuttable LED strip lights, furniture and removable roofs. I have found they are much easier to spray paint prior to assembly if you want multiple colors and/or trim colors in your scheme. I drill the holes in the floors for wire paths prior to assembly and use square styrene tubing for the wiring conduits. Yet to build the tower.

Hi Martin. EBay sales do require VAT however online sales do north require VAT to be collected if leaving for a non EU country.
Which means you just keep track of VAT free sales for your submission report.
MRE and PENDLES and Top Slots etc all offer VAT free sales to non EU countries.
That's a 20% discount to offset the cost of shipping and duties to US and Canadian customers. Otherwise we pay double taxes.
All the best

Just wow! I got my marshal stand and 4 grandstands. VAT issue aside (I paid it), these things are awesome. No way could I build these from scratch and make them look this good - believe me, I've tried.

Stupid easy to assemble. I decided to keep mine mostly unpainted since it looks a bit like weathered wood and only painted the railings, etc. like Half-Fast did. I simply spray painted those parts white and put it all together in about 30 minutes. Looks PERFECT. I'll post some pics as I get the others done this weekend.

Best part though? My basement smells like a campfire from the cutting...now where's my marshmallows?

Just heard that there are more new buildings coming in the next couple of weeks so i will be watching the magnetic racing website.
I never know what i might need until i see it lol
Im just getting ready to paint my pit buildings now, thinking concrete block color but trying to maintain that 60s look.
