I guess we mostly all are. I have been through several collections in the last 20 years, that I have sold for one reason or another. Now my collection is 99% my builds. Have very few off the shelf purchases. In last few years have really concentrated on USSRC and Can Am.

A few of mine:

A Really nice feature of FB are the pages that generate interest with weekly subjects to post pictures about. A huge benefit is that here all the weekly discussions will remain visible in the threads in this forum, as well as being able to easily see the current suggestion and related thread.

So ... Our first discussion is: Overview of your Track

   

   

   

This was at the stage of track shape development.... have since decided to add more wood and make a bridge....

I have always liked detail as well as performance. The blob bodies of yore leave me cold.

I know they can be pricey but Le Mans Miniature have always produced the most amazing cars:

Being a child of the fifties, the startup of slot car racing is in my blood. Cox, with the others being Monogram and Revell, are my top 3 favourite producers from that period.
Sharing a few of my cars, starting with the F1's

Here is the place to share any useful scenery images you might have, such as backdrops,  advertising banners, buildings, textures etc.

Here's my track, Whichwood Quarry.

       

It's a temporary analogue Scalextric layout, mixing Sport and Classic track, with some attempt at scenery modules, buildings, figures, trees etc. The layout measures 3.5m x 1.5m and has lane lengths of nearly 20m.

       

       

It loosely recreates a rally set in the 1970s, which is my favourite era and type of motor sport. It's actually based on my experiences of going to watch the R.A.C. Rally as a youngster, in the cold, and often bleak conditions of the Yorkshire countryside in winter. Although it's a rally track, I've kept it as a two lane circuit, mainly because people like racing against each other, rather than against the clock.

       

The scenery is made almost entirely from free materials, and it's all built in modules, so that I can dismantle it and pack the track away. I've used cardboard for the borders, walls and general structure, polystyrene packaging for the rock faces, collected heather and twigs for the trees, moss for the shrubby weeds, sawdust for the grass and leaves, and scouring pads for hedges. The main cost for the scenery was in glue and paint.

Over the years I have built many many cars, and then for one reason or another, I have disposed of them. Some of them I Really wish I had kept.

DO you have any cars in this group?

A few of mine.....
