Ok I spent an hour or so this afternoon building a car ramp. Used evergreen .125 X .125 styrene. I did some measurements off my lifesize one and changed them to 1:18 size.

Had ago but it looks like I need to make it a bit longer and the angle of the ramp lower, as I tried it on two models and they both couldnt use it without hitting the bodywork.

Anyway Hopefully the next one will be better.

and I know the shelfs dusty, need to clean it :giggle

other angle. I would probably paint the finished ramp blue, but I didn't bother seeing that this one isnt spot on.

p.s anyone know any good hobby spray guns? I need one :feedback

They look a little bit high to me. :nowork
Maybe try double checking the measurements?

thanks for the replies, yeah I think I'd have to make the 2nd one a bit longer, so its a bit lower. I was recently trying another little project, which didnt work out to well. May post some pics of it later

That looks pretty cool Odin. :cool1 I agree with mz6jlt's point in that the slope to the ramp should be a little shallower.
