I dun kow. JK, well I'm approaching new ways of using Lego from my other project of the Twin Towers' and I've been sorta struggling so thought of this. To answer your question, references, measurements, google earth, geological maps, and knowledge I have of B&M coasters of degrees in angles etc. --- I was making a B&M invert in FVD++ for 4 months, and looked at angles and transition "accent" in the shaping of track; that helped a lot.

Looks real good, nice attention to detail in the shaping and just in general.

Like I said on Facebook, this is awesome and I'll definitely be looking into Lego Digital Designer - not least because it might help to curb my spending on actual Lego :lol:

the amount of money I'd drop on this is actually obscene
Ok but how desperate you have to be to voluntarily fly from another country to go to Thorpe?

That's pretty awesome, how tall would that be if you actually built it?

From what I've done to figure out its height, it's only a foot tall 1:135 Is its determined scale.

So thought it would be fun for a bit to make different colour combinations to see what they would appear like with the track design I made, mostly Inverts, can you guess coaster?? Add some bonus flying types in the front.

:)
