Just started on my larger track for my new 2.4g cars. It will probably be much the same as before but, as I took some photos, I might as well show them. 12mm chipboard seems not available now so I have used 11mm OSB, something new to me. On my small practice track, I tried another lane change without the plate (I have made dozens of these over the years but they never work as well as with the plate) so I shall stay with the plates. I usually start with gluing down the plate, then fitting the wire. I am staying with 0.8mm wire. The std. guide magnet in the car will run across this ok when driving back onto the track. Any heavier wire and the car will not cross it.
The card strips alongside the l/c enable a quick test to be made. I shall lift these before plastering. The strips of card around the track boundary should make plastering easy and accurate. Ready mixed plaster is then easy to apply and definately the way to go as far as I am concerned. I shall leave around the l/cs clear in case they need adjusting.
