Nice, Don't Rush it otherwise there will be mistakes! Us TPR people are patient, except when waiting for ERT to start! :lmao:

What's up TPR!?!?!?! It has been too long since I have made a legitimate post in this thread, which saddens me deeply.

However, the wait is OVER! Finals have passed and I am settling in at home, which means ample time to work on the model. Look for continual updates over the summer, though expect most of them from now until June 14th. June 24th is the day I depart for the TPR Europe trip, and once I get back, it is right in to summer classes. Summer classes stretch right up until pretty much the first day of the fall semester, and I will be balancing my homework with my work at Elitch Gardens. Long story short, it is do or die time to get this project done if I want to have it done for IAAPA in November. Help motivate me by telling me your thoughts, comments and criticism!

This latest update is that of the first part of the pretzel loop. It has come out really well I think and looks amazing in real life. The pieces fit perfectly together and it just really looks nice, if I do say so myself haha. What do you guys think about it? Anyone excited that the hiatus is over and this project is in full swing? I certainly am!

Again, I hope you enjoy this update as much as I am! Without further a due, I give you the Pret. (Get it?)

Jordan

Edit: I am aware that the single support on the back side of the Pretzel should have a partner. However, I misplaced a bag of support beams and don't have enough to complete the supports. I ordered a new bag today and will install that missing piece ASAP.

The flash made it look gross since it is dark out. So bare with me!

Herro pretzel loop!

This picture will be LEGIT when everything is in place!

I didn't pay too much attention, but this will be ROUGHLY where the Manta sign will go.

You will notice there is still some tape on the track. The reason being it isn't 100% dry yet and the tape is holding everything together for the night.

To conclude, I give you a picture of the entire project to date! Hope you have enjoyed!

Very awesome so far... I'm jealous though, your going to IAPPA and TPR Europe. You're living the coaster nerds dream, and doing it well. This model is great so far, and if I am correct in inferiing you are bringing this to IAPPA I think many people will be very impressed. Looks awesome so far!
