Hi folks,

I'm currently building a second die-cast gravity track, in my workshop, the first one is in my kids bedroom.

the pictures will speak for me but I'll try to comment details.

first I introduce those I build for my kids (and me).

It started with a shelf built for them... then I saw few tracks parts and as I watche some 3Dbotmaker's races before a idea came.

In the begin it was short. Too short. I decided to invest on track parts. Then more. And more...

And details, more and more details.

At a moment I bought Crash Racers tracks...

And then decided to build another track, at work, as I use my extruded polystyren wastes to form the rocks.

This day I'm also proud with the start gate I just made, another step is reached.

It will need weeks to fix all and finish this track properly.

Glad to share this with you, see you on the tracks !

     Impressive! the "stone" bridges and towers do remind me of the landscape of many a cartoon. Please show this track in action as soon as you are able.

I like that you incorporated a train into the first track, that's a nice touch I like as a railfan!

Thank you !

About cartoon, it's the spirit of this track

Wile E. Coyote got his little cottage with outdoor dry toilets but no more shrubbery, he lost at poker against a knight who say ni. Just miss a mailbox.

A shop just opened today, they need a stock and an interior design

First attempt with sand, I'll have to fix some lack but I now have a "not bad" method

There'll be a train here too. And two railroads downside, at the bottom.

for action, I can show few vid' but no real race (for the moment !?...)

Love it! That last corner at the crossing is going to be super wicked, though ....

This is all very awesome. It's great to see a little spin on the real-world modeling for tracks, especially one so fun. Great use of the foam too.

     I suspect Wile E. should stay far away from any games of chance with a knight who says Ekki-ekki-ekki-ekki-ptang-zoom-boing. Znourrwringmm. Great footage, though.

Thanks !

yesterday I received some more stuff I really like, and now I know where I have to glue sand.

Other items are incomming, one is Plymouth Road Runner and another one is a Hazzard county sheriff's car.

And I reserved for this summer (import) a wood wheels DeLorean version... About that, did someone knows if it can fit on a HO/OO railroad !? It could be funny.
