  • Wall Murals

    I'm looking for affordable murals to decorate three walls of my track's room.... something that will give the racers a feeling of being at an actual raceway. Ideally the mural would show sections of an actual track with spectator, pits, scenery, etc. Approx. dimensions are 7' tall by 11~14' wide. Maybe other users of this forum have found some awesome murals already and can share some websites to check out... or maybe you have some for sale??
    Thanks.

        I Just did an image search for "Race track wall murals" and the things are everywhere, from F-1 to Disney Cars. Affordable is another question, ever price photo printed model railroad backdrop$?
        Maybe install jumbotrons on the walls and then you could have whatever pic or video you want displayed?

          Slot.it has a nice poster of the Group C cars - always a good converstion piece if you race the slot.it cars.

              Newbe,
              I am working on a mural. I was given a wall mural of a baseball stadium. I'm trying to remove all the players and stadium grass, leaving the people.
              It may look good. Did I tell you that this thing is 8'x12'?
              Good luck,

                I don't have a 1/32nd track so I built a diorama to pose my cars on. To make a background for the diorama I took some pictures and stitched them together using Photoshop. I took the resulting file to a local printer and had it done as a banner. A lot of smartphones can do a panorama, that would be easier than using Photoshop. The 12X50 inch banner cost $50 printed on vinyl. The vinyl is textured and that texture can sometimes show when I photograph the diorama. If the backdrop had been printed on paper it would have been cheaper and there would have been no texture.

                    Jaws - that rally track on the Phantom Drum website is impressive as a temporary track! Thanks for sharing

                    This is a photo I archived from one of the Slot forums...cant recall if it was HRW. I always liked this person's idea of using a simple silhouette of the mountains as a backdrop. This is very effective and something you can do yourself with the $5 paint colour samples, in 3 shades of green, from home depot and a banner roll of paper......or if you are brave paint it directly on your wall as was done in this case! Trying this on a paper roll is still on my To-Do list.....let me know if you try it. Cheers RvE

                    for some reason, that track looks familiar.
