Anyone got tips on building a steel hyper coaster model?  What to use?  How to
use it?  I got the terrain down pat...but the coaster...geez.  How do I make it
all fit?  The cars?  How would they run?  I wanna make custom cars...how?
HELPPPP!!!  E-mail me or post message.

You could always use a Faller model and just use the track and cars that come
with it and for the supports go to your local hobby shop and buy the plastic
styrene pipes and stuff that architects use to make their models.  It worked
for me.  I turned a Faller model into a terrain coaster.  Go for it.  It's fun
and prety simple.

feet long and almost 4 feet high...the track is about 3/4 wide...need to work
out the details more.

I have a good suggestion for you, you should sell kits.You could make alot of
money, make kits for boomerangs, and shuttle loops, that would be so cool!

KIT KIT KIT! :0) I think it would be a greta idea to make reasonably priced
kits including all the parts to make a coaster, and instructions, all we would
have to do is buy a base and paint and glue, that would be a great idea!

I think both would be a great idea.  People could start doing their own, reach
a dead end as to what they want to do and then start a new one using
directions.  This would be great!
