Finally got the package from shapeways, yeaij
After having painted the new version, It looks like this:
As can be seen, I am not good at painting, good thing it is not my day job.
The pitwall will be taken down a few millimetres for the final version, while I am very happy about most of the other changes.
The idea of having team names printed on the signs did not work out well, so they will be blank and ready for labels instead, something which works well on the front, I think.
Oh, and while I was at it, I also got a grandstand home. A few errors found that have been corrected in the design, but it looks great on the board.
The grandstand is 15 cm long and 4 high + deep. Approximately the same depth as the pit building and twice as high.
the next project is road barriers and tire walls.
A word on advice for people who think this stuff sounds interesting and are cosnidering doing the same for their favourite game: make sure you have the support of your spouse, you are going to spend a lot of time in front of the computer while considering design.
Luckily, I have the best wife
