Great idea, looks natural and irregular. Like it a lot.
Thanks Tom! I think it worked out reasonably well. The other aspect that I think turned out is the more subdued lighting. I still may tweak it some, but its getting the 'glow' I envisioned.

That looks really good....except the driver of car #17 is totally confused and facing the wrong way :D .

I've always wondered how best to incorporate lights into a pits scene. Initially I was thinking of using the yellow grain of wheat lights used in railway modelling.
Enjoying the build Jerry. Very good indeed

Paul, I think ultimately that would be best. Not only because the lights were smaller, but you could customize your light display only to the number and position you wanted/needed them. I bought these lights fairly cheap on Amazon and since I don't have the equipment needed for a RR lighting system, they seemed like a good option to experiment with. Thanks for your interest and compliment!

Thanks Ian! I think he may have been blinded by the bright lights! :D

Wow, blinded by the light.... there might be a song there somewhere..... :lol:

That is a prodigious job so far Jerry. I am liking that a lot. The pits remind me a lot
of the 60's era pits you see in the movie LeMans. I thought they looked a bit dingy, and
they probably were a little.

I enjoy poking about here and there, backstage so to speak
when I get to the races. Occasionally get escorted out, but so far nothing worse. ;)
From time to time you even get a bit of info. I think the older tracks have the advantage
of character that some of the new courses need time to develop.

This will show gobs of the same.
looking forward to the next installment.
