  • scale scenery details by Checkered Flag Entertainment

    Hi all, new to the forum here. I run a Carrera Digital mobile track here in central Florida,but do travel for corporate events. Over the years, I have designed and built many custom details that I use to promote the reality experience in slot car racing. The main things are my scale catch fence system (kits available) and custom scale pop up tents. The tents are made to your sponsorship likes/needs. I currently have them listed on Ebay, but can also be contacted directly through this site as well. Will try to add a photo or 2, but we'll see how that goes.

      278" 278/32=8.68x26=$225.68 I may need to look at just the sections where the cars come off the most and add a little at a time. How did you secure the outer fence around the track? Can tell from pictures.

    The sections are secured by the included self tapping screws. I include 3/section, but some only use 1 at each end. A small pilot hole is drilled then the screw is attached. I do recommend starting with a few sections at a time. Not only for cost, but it make a major project if trying to do too many sections at a time. Speaking from experience. I used to sell the assembled fences. But nobody wanted to pay for my time, so now I sell the kit.

            If anyone is interested in receiving a sample section of fencing prior to deciding to purchase the kits, please send me a message with your address and I will get one out to you. And as for the kits, update, I now drill the holes for you as not everyone has access to a drill press to make all of them straight.

              1/32 Scale Pop-up tents are made to order. I can put pretty much any sponsor and or color wanted to suit your racing style or track theme. each tent can be made as a standard or a deluxe version. Standard is just that, top and 4 post tent. The deluxe will have detailed side skirts on 2 or 3 sides and or poster back wall. Both versions have elastic scale tie downs to add to the realism. Can also do corned stand outs, see photos for more info.

              If you are interested in sprucing up your layout, message me with your request and I will get back to you ASAP. Price range from $8-$18 depending on tent size and amount of detail requested. Below are a selection of photos to give examples of the possibilities.
