WOW! How did you get the B&M to look exactly like one? That is so cool! I need tips, my friend and I are going to take on a project of a scale model of Millennium Force, using metal pipes and bars, a soldering iron, and a lot of time a patience.

That is amazing!! It must have taken a while to build all those. Do the cars actually run?

The B&M one is nice, the Lego ones are ok. Why is someone standing on a boomerang in the first photo?

Thanks for the comments mates. I will put up more info when I have the time.

Yup, all of the models work except for the LEGO Boomerang (Too much friction obviously, can only do one loop) & the Beemer (Wrong track, to be rebuilt & is way far from being completed. What you see is all there is.) Click on my member info for another pic.

BrandonR, that person on the Boomerang is me!

Lata,

Kev.

SFMMRULZ01, why would you make a comment about someone to make fun of them like that?

If you want to diss somebody about there hobbies, go somewhere else.

Taipan, keep up the great work!

Ta CPgenius. I don't mind what he said as that is so not the case. The Beemer was my final school year major project for '97. I worked my*****off for the whole year & had enough of it, so packed it away in the garden shed. The desktop toy was a 2nd last school year project for '96.

The LEGO Boomerang is from '92 and the Loop Corkscrew from '95. That is all, I haven't touched my LEGO for years as too busy with my R/C model helicopters.

I've always been fiercely jealous of those who could build things with legos. But envious in a good way. That stuff amazes me.

Nice work.

And Mr. SFMMRULZ01 keeps his hands busy in other ways. Don't worry about him.

Wow Taipan, I love the Arrow Double Loop ride, what did you use to for the track, and how did you assemble your pieces?

I used the rails from the old 12V (grey) and 4.5V/Unpowered (blue) train sets & turned them over sideways. Look at the photo carefully to see how I made the cars & cross-ties.
