Very cool. Park and rigs look awesome..

If you had to guess square footage, how large an area would you say your rc park covers? Just wondering is all.

Thanks guys! square footage is roughly 15K sq. ft. It's pretty big. It's hard to say because there are a lot of trails that meander back into the woods. They are great for bashers or anything with 2.2s but we generally don't go back into them as much with scale trucks.

Starting to think of winter projects. I started a jungle hut last year & will probably pick that one back up. It would fit with the bridge theme. Campground is on the list too.

Maybe a miniature miniature gold course??

You need to make a video arcade, many of the camp sites I used to go to in my travels had video game arcades, pool tables, Ms. Pacman, Centipede (yes I'm old), etc. That would go great in the park I think.

I like that... I'm not sure what it's going to be but it's going to be an ocean based theme.... with pink flamingos.

I picked up a few items:

one 14" blue shark:



one sea turtle:



one pink flamingo



and some coconut fiber for roof thatching:

Ok, gathered up enough momentum to feel like I will actually finish this. And posting it makes it an offical commitment. I've been rolling this idea around for a long time & it's finally gelled into something I'm comfortable with.

Wolf Creek Trading Post. It will be a safari based theme to go with the jungle bridge. I have a spot picked out for it real close to the bridge.

Here is the start. 24" x 24" octogon base. It will be a three sided, thatched hut with supplies, gas pumps and possible a few plastic animals. I have a fetish you know.

I'm going to try and make more of the little stuff myself as opposed to using dollhouse things. It will keep the cost down & be closer in scale to the trucks.
