Here's a track my bro-in-law had in his garage....1/24 scale racing....
It looks like a heck of a lot of fun. From the pictures it also looks like there's a few extra stalls that could actually be used to park cars too. What's the black car on the edge of the first pic?
It's my bro-in-law's 26/27 "T" hot rod.
The sight of the tall T next to that 1/24 slot car layout has got to be impressive! Now if you can just talk your bro-in-law into parking a few classic Mopars in the rest of those stalls...
Wish i could...unfortunately, he's a F*rd guy!! Track is actually for sale. It also has a computer track management system for running races, doing time trials, etc. We used to own a slot car track store here in town back in the 90's. We had a tri-oval track, a "hillclimb" track and a dragstrip. Also had a figure * track for mobile events. It was a hoot!
That's OK. I had a relative that used to drool a lot and pick his nose. (Oh wait... - that was me)
Track details and those cars are awesome!! Very nice work!!!
Thanks dge467. It's a heck of a lot easier to make progress on a project that's indoors. The garage is insanely cold.
Just like a real speedway, there is a ton of things going on!!!! Love the hand written track signs!!!
At first I was just trying to fill the layout with anything track related. Then it started to look like clutter to me so I decided to try to make stuff I had look more interesting. The little T-shirt stand has printed images of my racing friends team logos. The BBQ stand is a tribute to my affinity for chili dogs. Some of the characters I painted represent real people. I've got 350 figures on the layout now. I started reproducing vintage race cars that aren't available otherwise. I even managed to make clones of some of my actual vehicles. The wrecker I made has working headlights, tail lights, brake lights, and horn. The computer screen displays driver's names and announces race results. Yesterday I added a laser projector that produces a night sky star effect on the ceiling & walls. The hand written track signs were meant to add a bit of humor.
I really liked the t-shirt stand. The BBQ stand has "real" Americans hanging around it like the stand around North Georgia, lol.
It just didn't look right to me until I added more people that were standing in line. I keep thinking I should add some protective fencing around the spectator areas but I'm not sure I will. The way it is now it reminds me of some of those racing videos I've seen online where the crowd is right next to the course.
Another custom resin car build from start to finish.
A couple more resin body conversions in process. - Starting to get a good sized field of cars from the 50s and 60s.
I printed my own decals for the'55 on waterslide printing paper. - Lookks complete now.
