Mountain in a bottle?

Message … mountain in a bottle?

Following in from the previous blog entry, the tail track of a zigzag would fit in one of the big detergent bottles used at work.

Having done this though it occurred to me that if the lower level approach track were also modelled it would look even better, as well as being more understandable what was happening. This might still be possible in the bottle if I raise the tail track a couple of inches and put the approach track as low as possible by cutting away more of the bottle at the bottom of the viewing hole.

Still just food for thought, there’s been no commitment of track or other resources yet, other than cutting a hole in a plastic bottle and shaping a bit of scrap wood to fit as the track bed.
