Hey Guys!
I haven't built in a while as I have been very busy, but I started my new coaster today. I've been wanting to try out this lift style, so here you go:


I haven't decided exactly what it will be so I am open to suggestions.
The lift supports are not done. More will be added as well as chain runs , lift backbone, and a gear/motor housing. The box supports will stay. The flimsy support holding the track will not.

So comment and let me know your opinions on what kind of coaster I should do.

Looks good to me! Maybe a corkscrew coaster or a looper?

I agree with that.

I was considering maybe interlocking loops and maybe interlocking corks in the layout. I was thinking lift, turn, drop, loop, then some kind of section maybe like a batwing, possible mcbr, then the second loop, then maybe a double corkscrew or something into the brakes.

So I've decided to do a looper a bit more like Great American Scream Machine. Yes, this means drop to floor, rising back up into the first loop followed by a turn and two more loops. I've started on the first loop, which isn't finished:

I might change the pull in to the loop to be a 45 degree angle. This coaster will be some what tall.
I will also work on shaping a bit more and many more track to support connections will be made.
Comment!
