Two-lane highways

These are some road sections I’ve been working on. They are 20″ long and represent two-lane highways as I recall seeing them in Arizona. They are raised using black foam-board, glued onto white foam-board. The median between the two highways is going to be rugged ground to cross, and cars can spin off the roads out of control into the relative safety of the desert: assuming there are no wasteland raiders waiting behind a boulder to ambush them.

I plan to set up my two 6′ tables end-to-end to make a 12′ long highway, and as the cars exit one end we can return them to the starting point for a potentially limitless race.

Last Sunday I painted the yellow traffic lines on them, and after I flock the ground with random desert grass I’ll add a new photo of the finished result.
