  1. Hm...well...ever since the last update I painted the lift and the station pieces...and I need to get those attached to the supports then I'll start putting on the rails. So, the track should probably be finished sometime this weekend. **edit** Today I'll be going and buying the last few pieces I need for the track, then I'll put the rails on. Expect and update possibly tonight!
  2. OMG, hahahahaaha! I nearly pissed on myself when it slipped on the ice!
  3. ^ Actually, the end of each tie fits *inside* the rail...I made a sample of it before I started... 1.bmp This is what the track will look like from above...if you could see through the rails.
  4. **UPDATE** I've started work on the track, and it's going pretty well! And here's the entire thing so far! This picture sort of explains how the track connects to the support. The little blue piece is super glued to a rod and the rod is run into the PVC pipe and then a screw is run through the PVC pipe and the rod. Looking down about half of the first drop. What will someday be the lift hill and the station...I have to paint them first. For Yankee Cannonball and anybody who was wondering, this is what the rails are made of.
  5. Yes, it basically feels like the coaster dynamix track but it's 1/4 of an inch thick. I'll take a picture of it, I'm about to do an update.
  6. The supports are actually a dark grayish color. Also, my school colors and blue and yellow.
  7. ^*9 I'm jealous. I got free tickets to see Kelly Clarkson and Reba a few weeks ago! They were actually really good.
  8. I don't have any kind of piercings or tattoos... I probably won't ever get any anyway.
  9. ^Not only that, but I have a VERY limited amount of time, and the main reason that I'm making it very simple is that, I have no idea how it will run when I put it all together. So, I'm just using the safest track with the most common elements and praying that it will all work. I have (in my opinion) a really good design for the wheel assembly. I'll have to custom make my wheels (I got a half inch rod of steel, and I'm going to cut it into little fourth inch sections then drill a hole in the center that's 1/16th of an inch). All of it will be fitted onto the track by a piece of aluminum in the shape of a C...but square...It will be tight enough to hug the track, but it will be loose enough to where if I have a few bumps here or there it will keep going. And yes, the trains will basically be boxes on wheels...but with a pointy nose...and they will be day glow yellow.
  10. ^Well, I mean, I'm basically set on the blue...seeing as it's already painted...so even if somebody doesn't like it I'm not going to change it. ::edit:: I painted the pieces where the track will connect to the supports. little blue aliens!
  11. For the lift hill I'll probably buy a motor and have a small chain connected to it and then have a ghetto rigged chain dog under the train. As for the brakes...I did have some ideas for them at first, but now I think I'll just let it run like a K'nex or coaster dynamix model. ::edit:: I just painted the cross ties because I got bored. (I have two types of cross ties, the one you see won't be connected to the supports, but I made another kind which is basically like these but with a square piece of wood in the middle so it will be able to connect to the supports. I have to finish making them then I'll paint them and post pictures of them too.) Do you guys like that color?
  12. I must say that I have a particularly strong hatred for Daughtry. And Nickelback.
  13. "Let's Make This Moment a Crime" -The Format The Format is my one of my favorite bands btw. Even though they recently broke up. =/
  14. I will! Plus, I'll have to finish it because if I don't I probably wouldn't be able to graduate. Also, it will have to be finished before May. I've been working on it for a week.
  15. ^No, It will be made out of polytheylene tubes. For the cross ties I'll use pieces of wire hangers I cut out.
  16. I'm designing a working model roller coaster for my senior project, and I just wanted to post some pictures of what i have so far so you guys can tell me what you think! Also, please help me think of a name. This is where I am so far! Now, I have to make the track (which I'm working on), the train, and the aesthetic stuff. finished supports! almost halfway finished with painting the supports! painting the supports (I'll have the base covered in fake grass) Then, I made a base and drilled holes where supports went. The supports went through blocks glued to the base for extra sturdiness. I cut all of my sections of PVC after scaling down a roller coaster I designed in NL and sorted them/put them together. It's basically got a station, lift, drop, loop, and a turn back into the station. pieces of pvc and wood and other fun stuff. Me at Lowes with a shopping cart full of stuff!
  17. ^Awesome! I'm wearing a bathrobe right now too!
  18. All these came from some book. I saw it at Books a Million the other night and they all made me laugh out loud. They're great. You might also want to look at the book "should you laugh at this?" or something like that.
  19. ¡Felíz Cumpleaños! Even though I'm not Mexican or Spanish...
  20. ^ Oh...k... You should make a thread called the ramblings of smartestcoasterkidever's day to day life. I'm just kidding. But seriously.
  21. I bet everybody thought I died! well...i haven't!
  22. Did you know that it doesn't stop in the station?
