        Thanks pomonamissel. I was going to run all 1/24 on this track but opted to go mainly with 1/32 because of space constraints. As far as the number of pics goes... I dunno?? Sometimes the site has let more be posted. It may be related to whether or not you're a 'gold member' which I was for awhile.

            Funny you should bring up the Who. I was considering making interchangeable curtains, flooring, and figures so I could rotate out the music and display other bands. My next choices would be the Rolling Stones, the Beach Boys, Steppenwolf, and the Animals. - I may enjoy listening to Beatles music but eventually I'd like to swap it out with other stuff.

              Thanks halifaxhops. I'll try to post another video later that looks better. There's a lot of detail I didn't show as well as I'd have liked to. I don't know if you guys could hear the audio. Some sites block copyrighted music even if it's playing in the background of videos you post. I'll try to have some of the computer controlled cars making laps on the next one too.

              Ghost cars (computer controlled) creating havoc on the track as I do some more camera experimentation.

              I've got an MP3 player streaming music to the backside of the stage I built and it is set up to play Beatles music along with the animated characters. The music is what was copyrighted so the video was blocked.

                I bought some more used (and broken) Christmas displays made by LEMAX. I can usually tear them apart, fix them, and then rob the animatronics out to re-purpose on the layout. Here's a picture of one of their animated seesaws. The one I purchased was missing a lot of parts but it was a good candidate to add motion to my flagman.

                All I really needed was part of the base with the motor and levers.

                SANY3157.JPG

                I made a mark with a magic marker where I decided to cut it apart.

                - Didn't need these sections.

                This is the finished stand before putting it on the layout.

                            Thanks SSVDP. I thought I'd use one of those setups to make my blimp travel over the layout. I'll have to figure out a spot for the bumper cars now.

                            "I'll work on the car when it's warmer." You just can't leave it alone, can you? :poke:


                            Looks good, I like your obsession to get that last detail, it's a slippery slope.
