thank you very much for your kind words. It gives me pleasure when my reports provide inspiration for the construction of other racetracks. You can also imagine that it will be a lot of fun for me to continue building the Jersey Circuit - and I am sure that I will not run out of tasks in the next few years...
It was high time to finish the farm. But sometimes you can't get to the final details….
But now I have built the pasture gates out of shish kebab skewers and aged them in the usual way. I also made the fence for the chicken yard in the tried and tested way using coffee stirrers and provided it with the same color coating to show the weathering.
Now that's the result:
The animals of the goose and chicken farm come from a toy set, as well as from this Tamiya 1:35 kit:
Of course, the animals from the kit still had to be painted, the ones from the toy set were already colored. A closer look at the courtyard shows the residents:
The small, separate area for the BBC racing reporter team has also been given pasture gates.
Except for one, the gates are glued in place, you usually don't get as close to them as to notice. However, I have provided the gate to the front of the track with hinges so that it can be opened and closed.
The farm is finally finished. Although not quite yet: the last detail to be made is the ladder leading up to the camera tower.
