Minic motorways, Conquer Tank, Triang R571 G10 Q car, Battlespace

Posted by paulmeredith , 08 September 2017 · 182 views

Hi, thanks for reading my blog on battle space parts. The other part of the project is to use my Minic motorway track with various army type vehicles linked with battlespace. I have a conquer tank that works on the minic motorway track. I am looking for Minic chassis parts, motors and pickups. Also some more tank bits that will suit the Minic motorway track, ie tank hulls, triang assault tanks, some take a couple of rockets on top for firing. Triang made a minic tank that went on a brown bogie wagon. The idea when I was a child, was to build this integrated layout, it seems I am now driven to make this happen!! Is it old age and going crazy? I cannot remember stuff recent like a few days ago but clearly when I was young. I will take some pictures to show some of my progress. I still got to build the Triang layout! I have now also made some new battlespace wagons, mainly out of Triang parts. I have many more ideas to build.

There's often stuff for Minic Motorways on Ebay. When I renovated mine some years ago I found that the rubber in the centre of each strip in the track had perished, it was possible then to buy replacement. This was a bit time consuming to fit but did the business. If you ever see the Jools Later programme on the TV advertised, its worth watching for the opening sequence, which features a Minic set - apparently he's quite an enthusiast.
