is that lions back ;)

have you considered using like an automotive 3M rubberized undercoating for the top paint layer? it would be awesome... and you'd have lots of grip

JLF 01-02-2010 04:02 PM

Awesome!

Funny how the Micro has brought out the 'arts and crafts' side of so many RC guys!

Very cool!

"thumbsup"

Not big enough for lions back. Plus he would need a scale yota to wedge in the cliff. That would be the bomb if someone did make a scale Lions back. I wonder where I could get a topographic map off it. Then just use that as a template for your sheets of insulation.

im gonna plaset a couple spots to smooth them out and then ive got a layer of truck bed liner and then 3 colors of the rustolem rock fleck paint, and a bunch of train display colors to hopefully make it look somewhat realistic. i also have a bunch of trees and bushes to add.

its not arts and crafts when you use construction materials. besides i made a mountian. much cooler than making pop bottle bird feeders

311WJ 01-02-2010 04:24 PM

i wonder if the truck bed liner will eat up your tires really bad.. the 3m undercoating is the exact same but without the sand in it.. I'm looking forward to see how this turns out! it looks killer so far! you should build a little popsicle stick bridge from one peak to the next ;)

VooDuuChild 01-03-2010 12:31 AM

Even unfinished, it's my favorite one so far. Excellent climbs, off cambers, ledges, cliffs and serious altitude! Can't wait to see the finished product.....I also think a suspended bridge would be sweet.

i used undercoating on my course and it worked great.i just layed it on really thick and poured sand on top of it while it was still wet. waited about fifteen mins and dumped the loose stuff. it does flake off a little bit but still works great.

theholybull 01-03-2010 10:18 AM

i tried it on a cou-le spots and then sprayed some rock fleck paint on it. i may have made the course alittle to tough fot a stock truck most of the linnes on the creek side the truck has a real hard time doing. think its because of the 800 mah lipo on my front axle. I need to get a 300 mah and try her some more.I think that the extended wheelbase trucks will do real well.

The best covering I found is to screw down cheapo burlap, and cover with resin epoxy (Lowe's) coating. You put it on with a paint brush and it dries hard as a rock. After that, you can spray paint it any way you want.

311WJ 01-04-2010 01:37 AM

sweet! looks great! you bound to be able to make some good looking videos whit this coarse!

theholybull 01-05-2010 02:04 PM

I got the other half of the course painted today and added the bushes and trees. I think it looks great. It looks better than in the pics because you cant see alot of the shading and texture. i still need to go creek diving and get some rocks for the creek.

yea 800 mah lipo lets me run ove an hour. ive got some 240 mah on order but i had them laying around from my helicopter so i used them. I thought that i may want the creek functional so under the part with the ruts i left a spot for a pump.
