1971 Matchbox Scorpions – Garden Layout

Here we have the track set up outside so I could assemble all the Scorpions track I have to make the biggest layout so far.
It comprises 2 Big Eight sets & a TA3 curve pack.
The cars were being their usual fickle selves, but managed to get 2 running consistently for awhile to get this video.

The green Phantom car is like a Maclaren Honda ‘cos it’s flipping slow. I took all the speed controllers off its lane to keep it going at a reasonable speed. It finally managed to overtake the purple Tornado once the Tornado’s battery was winding down.
The Phantom needs more probing to find out why it runs so slowly. The chassis & motor are mint & clean, so it’s a bit of a mystery..
