on mine, there are still the same cars, BUT the workbench got a general clean up and i hope to find some time to really start with some of the cars.
The JCW plug got the whole in the grill filled and is now ready for vac-forming, both whole bodies and windows for the resin copy :)

Roland, that layout looks great!
1/43rd or 1/32nd lane spacing?
2 or 3 lanes?
oval will be banked, infield with elevation changes?

Arkay,

I absolutely love the image in your post above:

Image


Especially the image in the upper right hand corner of the image you posted. That being the track diagram.

One of the places I have raced at in Florida is The Race Place in Holly Hill. It is adjacent to Daytona. They have a Daytona International Speedway replica track, that owner Greg Walker built.

Image


When he built his track back in the 1980's, he did not have the technology that is available today. I can see some digital switches selecting the track you run. So very nice.

I must say that a lap on the track at Holly Hill is a true experience to behold. I'm sure yours will be the same.

It will be a 43rd scale track. Three lanes, 70 mm wide each.
The lane change will be electromechanical, not digital.
It is simply designed for changing the course. I like roadcourses but I love NASCARs as well. So I thought it might be funny to combine both if possible. The track is 19 m long, sufficiently dimensioned for my intentions, and has enough space for a bit of landscaping and life...
There will be no banking and no elevation changes, simply because the oval will be used as part of the roadcourse, too.

Roland


I must correct - of course there is an elevation change in the infield.

You know, Lloyd, that looks a little like your track, too! I like the number of Minis i see in that picture :)

It is part of my track Peter, it is just easier to work on there than on my bench sometimes!

There is progress on the Minis!
The 43Motorsports Mini Monaco will get the body mount glued in soon, ready for paint, well a little sanding is due in between.
And a 43Motorsports Mini Broadspeed GT morphed into a Mini Pickup.
Due to the small things that i do not like a 100% about the cast, i started with a new Mini Pickup from scratch. Will use the front half of one Heller kit and the body panels from a 2nd Heller kit to lengthen the body in the back. New rear body parts will be done from PS material.
I need to order PS round material in 1mm for the roll bar in the back after the drivers cabin.

the middle parts of the blue mini kit will act as rear body panels for the gray Mini. The rear will get a cover and a roll cage. Fender flares to follow as well.

looking forward to get the new chassis running. ball bearings in that small chassis along with nice gears - what will that sound like :D

Cheers
