Back in 2014 my kids wanted a race track. I dig a good slot car track as much as the next guy, but I really wanted to take it to the proverbial "next level." I found a race track at a local Hobby store, but the scenery included was just cheap cardboard. That sparked an idea and I figured that some styrofoam and Sculpt Nouveau metal coatings might be the best way to achieve a realistic desert landscape. Also, I took some artistic liberties with this Dukes of Hazard set and moved the Duke boys to southern California.
So here's the tutorial. I give an overview of the carving process and then get more detailed regarding the coating and finishing process. I had a lot of fun with this. I hope that even if you don't run out and make a Dukes of Hazard custom race track you at least get some good ideas for your own crazy projects!
