I saw it online it looks great,I was in touch with the builder and I'm asking about the HO he builds like that if he could do the king and also in 1/24,but I saw his version of the king and it's got no bank and it just looks like a home track,that's why I'm asking on the blog.

Plus in the day car model magazine advertised an amazing HO blue king track it looked amazing,that's what I'd like ideally.

Bob Scott can build a nice 1/24 scale baby blue pinched King track

It will be going in a shipping container which is limited more in the footprint,it's 8 feet wide × 48 feet long,so I don't have the 13.5 feet wide dimension, what to do,looking for and HO & 1/24 the scale?

A 13 foot wide track won't be 13 foot wide when shipped.  It will be broken down into sections for shipping and probably no piece would be bigger than 4 X 8 on a small track.  Maybe 5 X 10.

 

You should  contact Gary Gerding.   He is closer and has built a lot of nice home tracks.

 

Actually there is a nice Bob Scott lazy 8 on Ebay that has been for sale quite awhile.   It has been on this forum.  Sadly it is 3 1/2 inch lane centers, but if you are considering HO, this 1/32 track might be a reasonable choice for a home track.  It is $1500 picked up.   I bet you could find somebody int he area that would pack it in a shipper and send it to you for a reasonable cost, maybe even  deliver it in a trailer.

 

I think it would be a good home track.    If I find it again, I will post the link.

HO blue king with bank turns at The Race Place in Holly Hill, FL.

I would imagine Greg Walker would probably know who or where to get one made.

There is no such thing as a "small footprint" 1/24 scale, 8 lane King track. 20' x 50', or 1000 square feet, is the usual assumption.
