My direction has gone astray

Greetings everyone,
Well I was about to buy a couple of Confederate big guns from T.A.Miniatures, but I decided to build  another slot car track first, since I've got another room in the basement for a good size track and I'm in the process of building a few 1/24 scale slot cars, why not have a track.  What I'm going to build is a European rally track with all the scenery, so It sort of fits in with the terrain building. The first project are 3 pieces of track which will be an overpass. Starting with a plain black plastic track...the transformation starts...


  1. I need a a basement like yours! I am so jealous of the space of your mancave!

    Look forward to seeing the finished track

  2. Wow....Gee, Capt. I wish I was there to help you, talk your head off, and then drive to victory!!! Sweet looking vintage Sprint Car!

  3. Thanks Jay...the car is actually a Grand Prix car, a 1948 Talbot Lago

  4. It's been a while for me but I used to love my slots!

  5. Great start.

    Many years ago, I built a fully landscaped track for my son. I don't think I ever took photos.

    I have often thought that a Quarter Mile straight track would be good, to run custom hotrods on.

    I look forward to seeing more.


  6. That is so cool Captain! I will certainly be following your progress with interest. Maybe a third room for a train layout too?

  7. Capt. very cool diversion! I'm looking forward to more pics!
