    Oh, I look forward to this...
     
  3. Sounds promising indeed.

    Remember to visit the Dutch ol' ex-racers motorcycle sites to research this one, I'm sure some of them would be very pleased to see this recreated as well.

    Getting the resources is the most difficult thing. If you find something, let me know.
     
  5. Sounds like a great project! i would be happy to supply you with textures along the way :)

    Found a good site with lots of pics. Sadly most of them are from the same spot. Maybe i have to drive a partial lap with an camera, just like i did with the Hondsrugring.

    Some very early previews, laid down the basic track. Now i have to add terrain. I have found a lot of pictures of the track, but not always i know where those pictures are taken.

    This corner will be a test case for building techniques not used before by me. Some of you already use it.

    I have decided to build the 1953 version, because that year the TT was held at a almost unchanged track (since 1926).

    The track is imported in BTB and now i am working on the textures of the track its self. Some objects are build though.

    Also i have build a site.
