Two Starter set and a Custom made bridge

Postby RealSwede » Sun Sep 20, 2015 8:30 am

Hello everyone, Sweden calling!

I'm not one of the backers so I've been waiting for the Starter set to be out in the stores. As soon as it was out I bought one from the UK.
After racing a couple of weeks I wanted more track pieces and as I couldn't wait for the extension sets coming out I decided to buy a second Starter set.

The pictures shows the result with all track pieces included. I built a crossover bridge and added more paint on two of the cars.
A scotch white tape was attached to the starting/finish line on one of the two starting tracks to help the FX Racing system counting laps correctly.

Cheers and Happy Racing
Jan

Hello Jan,

it's really impressive your work. Can you please tell me where you found the parts for building the bridge.

Cheers

Hi Jan,
Thanks for sharing. I've just ordered another set so I was wondering what type of paint you used on the cars and did you do any preparation before painting.

Cheers,
Chris

Very simple !
Some plastic foam, packing material from the recycle bin at my job and a piece of thick paper. Glued and painted Black.

Cheers

Hi!
Normally I use a primer before the main color. Painted with an air brush for a nice finish.
But in this case the cars were only painted with a gold, silver and black pen.
The easiest way to do it and the result was not so bad.

Cheers

Jan,
I've got two starter sets too and I really like your layout, I might have to move some furniture to get it made though!

I was wondering if you could tell us more about the white tape? What's it for? Will I need it too if I make a layout the same as yours?

Inspired by your track, I built a similar one also based on two starter sets and a custom made bridge.
I also repainted two cars to have four different ones.

Excellent. I need to do something similar. What did you use for the painting?
