I had many of the same thoughts as the OP about Revell track.
Wife has four older brothers who gifted me awhile back with a big box of Revell track. Just track, no controllers, power supply or cars. At least the price was right.
I'm thinking about putting up a couple of 4x8 or 5x9 plywood sheets in the basement to play with *temporarily* till I come up with a track plan everybody likes.
We would be racing 1/32 scale hardbodies like Revells and brass Monograms, and maybe some Fly cars too.
I would love a new routed track, but want to be sure we both like the design first. I'm hoping SWMBO likes this style of racing as much as I do.
This is my first 'home track' since Tjet days, so I have some total noob questions. I'm sorry about that.
Instead of searching Ebay for spendy track aprons, would making them out of plywood work?
I would like to use Parma style controllers like a commercial track uses instead of the stock ones. Are there any problems/issues with wiring the track for them?
Is there anything I need to look out for with this track, like places where the track breaks easily? Would it work better longterm to pull the rails out of the track to clean it,
or just copper tape over them? I would still like to dissassemble the track to try new courses if possible.
