So it is exactly what the title says and is going to be 100% hand built. I'm not that far on it except for a first drop and a couple I305 like turns but I just want to post what I have so far to get some opinions on the shaping, color scheme, etc.

NOTE!: Supports are placeholders for the time being and are by no means final.

Curious as to why you've gone for such a flat start - as you have limited height wouldn't it be better to get some higher elements in to maintain variety that you might struggle with further throughout the layout?

Yeah I guess I didn't think of that and was instead thinking of the high end g forces on the first turn on I305. I might go back and combine that with what you said.

Don't be afraid to do something completely different. If we always followed that same progression of camelbacks from bigger to smaller, all our hypers would look like Magnum or Steel Force, and we'd never have something like I305, Skyrush, or Phantom's Revenge.

I will say though, if you do it, do it on purpose. That intention will help you sell it as a feature so it'll feel like it fits.

Seeing as how small it is, I’d say start with camelbacks and work your way down into overbanks and lower banks.
1. Voyage 2. Intimidator 305 3. Maverick 4. Skyrush 5. Mindbender (Galaxyland) 6. Fury 325 7. Kumba 8. The Beast 9. Phoenix 10. Mine Blower/Mako
