      Wow, fantastic track and great room. That pit lane with all those figures is very impressive. The illuminated cabinets under the track are a great way to display your collection. Terrific job. Cheers RvE

        A truly stunning setup all around Bonez...fantastic job!!

        Speaking of "sharp dressed"...that's the most nattily attired bleacher crowd I've ever seen.

        Nice to see you about again......
        I think it was you and Pinto Girl were the two who consigned me to the bronze step on the podium in the Slot.it Shoot out a number of years back.
        SlotsNZ...yeah, I kind of gave up for awhile with all the trouble getting on the site, and once it got back up, just checked in to see how the current Slotit Shootout was, uh, "progressing"...looks like it's about to wrap up.

        Yes, I vaguely recall that past Shootout when I actually produced a decent car...honestly, I think I just lucked out with a hot motor and a decent set of tires. I think that was the same Shootout where Natalie took the #1 spot on my track. Hey Natalie.

          Yeah, I think between us three we filled the podium in the series that year.

                  Truly a stellar example of craftsmanship and excellent thought in both design and execution.

                  I have a technical question -- when designing your turns, how did you determine how closely to place the inside slot to the edge of the track where the scenery starts? Did your design compensate for the natural tendency of the rear axle to track inward in turns during sIow-motion driving, the tighter the turn's radius the greater the inward tracking? If the slot is too close to the edge, then the rear tires can crawl onto the scenery during a slow-motion pass. If extra room is provided, then the track is wider than necessary and valuable space is wasted. I have included a post on this subject and would appreciate your review of that post and input on this topic (hopefully, the link to this post comes thru -- this is my first attempt at including a link). Thanks, much appreciated.
                  As we all know, when any car, whether it be a slot car or an actual automobile, goes very slowly through a turn, without any fishtailing, the rear tires/rear axle will track a tighter radius than the front tires. Or, to say this another way, in a slow motion turn the path of the car's rear tires shifts slightly towards the

                    I am a retired rocket scientist. And as a program manager it was my job to stop the “paralysis by analysis” that a lot of engineers fall into when seeking the absolute last technical tweak.

                    When I designed my 1:32 track I was limited to the 8x24 platform dimensions. So I first laid out my track plan using printer paper to approximate the track with my desire of scenic elements. I basically used a 12-inch board width with constant lane spacing but made the slots go inward on the curves to simulate a racing line and leave enough outside space for non-traction magnet drifting. I also made the board wide enough to attach my scenery under-structure for the plaster cloth.

                    Lastly, I only intended for 1:32 cars not 1:24. And my car collection features shorter wheelbase cars not the long Daytona stock car types.

                    So that was my design process.

                      What a room you have there! Just awesome. The craftsmanship on the track is outstanding - very realistic, but a nice clean-looking and well-balanced design overall. Very inspiring!

                        Where did the wine cellar get moved to?

                          I actually made my workshop from a room that would be typically used as wine cellar. Besides, I am more a Bourbon and Scotch guy...

                                Beautiful layout; nice balance of road and scenery that looks like it could exist in the real-world. Plenty of "breathing space" - having a large table helps, I'm sure! Nice work!
