I hope the pictures come through.

 

I started this track last year and tore it down in the spring and I'm just getting started back on it. It has a footprint of 8' x 24' with 4" lane spacing. I believe each lane is about 89' around it.

It looks really cool - but how do you turn marshall under the overpass? Looks a little tight to get in there.    :)


She's real fine, my 409!!!

Tim,

 

That all gets trimmed after all the side rails are put on. I'm a long way from being finished.

Nice-looking track, Butch. Is this to compliment the Herman P. Finklemeyer (or however you spell it) track?

Eric,

 

This one gets sold when it's done. Unless I decide I like it better than the one I got then I'll sell the first one.

Durl, it wouldn't do you any good to win the lottery. You'd just spend most of your money on women, exotic cars, yachts, booze, and gambling. The rest of it you would just waste.  :laugh2:

 

Thanks for all the kind words, guys.

So women, exotic cars, yachts, booze, and gambling are wise uses of money? I'll have use that myself! :laugh2:

 

Oh, a nice track, too.

Thanks, Dave.

 

If I could just build a slot car that handled I'd be set. :laugh2:

Thanks John and Ernie.

 

I don't know how it will be painted yet Ernie. I have a friend who might buy it when it's done so I'll leave that up to him if he does.
