Default Sorry

Hey guys,
So sorry that I was virtually not present on Saturday, I had a very early morning as you are all aware. Regardless I had asked Dom to wake me up before anyone left, but when I awoke at 730 , everyone was gone, AND the whole place was picked up . Guess I can't really complain. Thank you all for coming, and next time I will make sure that we don't have a scheduling conflict like this one.

Now about these Rhino girls. . . ahem.

Nothing like a little thread necro to start the work week . . .

This evolved over several weeks and got finished up this weekend. I will post a separate detailed thread on the birth of T4 scenery in the scenery section later. For now . . .



Riff raff moves in even as the heavy equipment moves out . . .

Ok, got all of this done in June but have been doin more driving than picture taking so here are the latest updates

Couldnt stand not having this hill done after finishing the other side so . . .





Here is where I needed to add to the first scenery bit to bring it up above the roadbed.



A pretty good illustration of what was needed



Finished blocking in the tunnel exit.



Overall view



On goes the plaster!





Plater complete. You can see the additions on the far right also.



Color added.



Hillside complete, waiting on the infield grass to grow . . .



Miracle grow werks wonders . . .



Ball N Chains water feature.



Another angle.



Track level view.



Front straight infield grass complete.





Latest overall view.



Now I am running the track and not worrying about scenery for a while!
