HO 1/64 Table Top Slot Dream

Recommended Posts

Well I went through what 11 cars I had, AFX and Tyco's, cleaned them up and started this.....................................

At Lowes, grass carpet

Yes it's hot glued to my kitchen table (small dribbles)

was going to use the garage interlocking rubber tiles but found this product.

Started the first diorama , what to use for water? Fiber cloth towel, sure no electrocution here.

Ordered some Innovative Hobby Flexstock buildings.

This will not be as advanced as my 1/32 layout, but still the same thrill.

some peeps, cats, dogs, ducks and a lil' of those and a lil' of them and this 4'X6' layout will be the cats meow............

We can go fish'n if you want.....

well most cars, yes about, 50 new and used, (Fargin used vintage cost double, triple than new cars) on there way, and some track and some rebuild kits for my older cars should be here at the end of March.

Triying to do this quick but nice and easy to disassemble if need be so no lighting planned.

This is all because i can not lower my 1/32 scale layout due to over crowding in the garage until i sell my mothers house, it's alright it gave me this idea.

Glad to see you back. Hope youre doing ok.

This is looking great. What sort of track do these run on? Is it similar stuff to regular scalectrix but scaled down?

Yeah i'm fine works is good, the woman i'm in love with needs time so i just wanted to fill in the missing space to keep me occupied until she tells me different.

pushing 57.5 years alot has really happened, kinda reflecting and our hobbies seem to be the very best therapy on God's green earth.

INNOVATIVE HOBBY Building Card Flex Stock Structures, fun but tedious some buildings easier than others, Bleachers seem to be the most challenging due to all the scoring and folds...

Your HO buggy's remind me of the SCX 1:32 scale buggy's, These SCX buggy's also have working suspension with 4 wheel drive. They are also fitted with "drop-arms" so that they can drive up and over obstacles.

Just now getting it going, few more buildings about 300 peeps or so, some more fun scratch builds on there way.

Soldering jumper cables to the far side of the track with speaker wire, this helps distribute power through out the track better.

Are they a couple of LMP cars on track? Cant zoom in that far on my phone screen.

Doesnt look like the salad was too popular when theres pizza on offer.

Now that I have reflected on this layout, i decided to use the left over reflective tape from my Valkyrie Vette RC Drag build since i'm not lighting up the track, I may though as on my N Scale train and 1/32 Scale slot layouts have quite of few and just may get a few more Miller Engineering Neon battery operated signs.

only just came across this, what a cool  build. It has given me an idea for the vintage matchbox and corgi cars I have been collecting lately!
