  • Scaffolding

    One detail that has always been missing from my track is scaffolding for a TV crew or officials. Today I decided to build one. What to use? Well I decided on coat hangers! Now to find a TV camera crew!

        Immenseminatures has a camera guy. Shown is the old type camera. They have the more modern version as well.

                Perfect timing, I need some of these for my track scenery, great idea, and thanks for sharing.

                  Thanks for the nice comments, yes it really does “pop” on the track.

                  Plus the scaffold is very strong, don’t want to have another 1960 Indy tragedy. Awful tragedy.

                    Very well done!
                    Adds a great touch and still enables you to see through the structure.

                    As for the two Indy photos. Note the photog in the foreground running left in photo 1 and then right in photo 2. Note his right pants leg. Looks like it caught in his tripod and tore. Bottom of left corner on photo 2 may show the missing piece of his pants lying on the grass.

                      that's great. surprised not to see a ladder though, guess you had to climb the structure.
