Well had the afternoon off so decided to attack the track and get the landscaping finished,Yes I have to fit some trees to it but those can wait till I get them.

So all the copper track was masked off prior to setting all the scenic scatter,this was done simply with diluted pva sprayed onto the scatter with an old household sprayer,In order for it all to adhere properly it was soaked well and truly,as it was so hot in the shed it was dry in less than half an hour.

After wiping all the excess Pva around the track and demasking the copper strip I simply used a dry brush with some brown paint to simulate mud on the tarmac,not only does this look the part but it has enhanced the grip but still allows the cars to slide.

Found this though might be worth a look for custom cars
