Goodwood Pits

Andy has added a routed pit complex to his 1930s digital layout and I offered to make him some buildings for Christmas.  The first of these is inspired by the early Goodwood pit structures, as in this image of Jack Dunfee and Woolf Barnato at Brooklands in 1929:

Raw materials were lengths of 5mm square spruce, some corrugated plastic sheets and a piece of metal wire sheet.

I made up frames for the pit structure and an accompanying paddock:

The frames were sprayed white and then fitted with roofs painted a mid-green.  I made up some vintage adverts to fix to the metal fencing.

They made it on to Andy's layout in time for a big digital race meeting yesterday.
