I've finished making the boards for a track to run 15mm minis on.

These pictures are right before I apply a coat of clear enamel.



This will be the main track. I had an extra board because of how I constructed things. I can have a standard, 34 square, straightaway or up to 48 squares.

The boards themselves are 1/4" MDF with some 26 gauge sheet metal glued to it. The minis will be mounted on their bases with magnets. This is mostly because I also made a moebius strip track (that will be another post).

This is the crossover section for the figure-8 track and a starter grid for the main track.



I'm mostly happy with how things turned out for this.

I still have to paint and mount the minis yet, but that's yet another post, too.

For the normal track it is about 24 inches wide by about 65 inches long.

The figure 8 track is 58 inches long.

I made enough boards to have a track that is about 82 inches long. The straight away would be 48 squares long.
