Nice, thats a lot of Popsicle sticks. Is the coaster in the background the hulk? I am pretty sure it is a B&M and it looks green.

Well, as promised, here is the completed track work of Insane at Grona lund! This ride has come out better than I imagined and I am very excited to start painting it and decorating it! In total, there is around 40 feet of solid copper, 75 feet of balsa wood (totaling 1500 sticks for the Intamin style track) and one month and four days to complete. Starting with some "blue prints" and now having it complete in 3D is the best feeling!

I will post updates continually as I get work done on the painting and the station. I will continue to clean the ride up right now before I submit it to the spray paint can which will put it all at a solid white color. I will then hand brush the supports to the appropriate color! Look for an update in the next couple of days! Thanks for reading!


Oh ya- The track will go through a reach envelope test tomorrow. Rumor has it that part of the track fails at the fire station. It hung out with a certain other new ride too long. It too was supposed to have a twisted loop but they decided it would be better if they just had the trains spin instead. Stupid ball coaster slash zacspin.

See that green dot though...I think that is a failed reach envelope.

Wow, that actually looks like Intamin track, complete with all details and everything. That is an awesomely elaborate model, keep it up. Also, I doubt this will happen, but are you ever planning on making a woodie by any chance? Anyway, like I said, AWESOME WORK!!

MAN this is awesome, but a woodie would just be insane and take forever to build, well if you would still use Balsa wood you could just buy the 1m square sticks of 2mm thick, and just keep working on it, not just that but a woodie would cost a fortune, I made bridge in balsa wood for a school project once and it costed me like 100euros to get all the wood I needed

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Hey guys, the coaster got its final paint job and is looking spectacular! At this time though I will put the coaster on hold so that I can concentrate on the looming finals I must take. I will also wait until some TR's are posted so I can see any last details I will have to put into the ride including the buildings, lift hill, brake run and station. Thanks for watching me do this, it has been a ton of fun building this model!

I present to you...TELE2 INSANE!!
