Hey guys, need a little help here. We are less than a week from closing on our new house. I will finally have an area dedicated to my RCP track and some pit spaces for our friends/family club gatherings.

I will be building an elevated platform for the track. It will probably be about 6 inches in height, and I have found a checkered flag 6 inch wallpaper border that I will put on it. I have also purchased a large Pro-Line banner, and ordered a large Kyosho banner to help decorate the area. I would also like a PN Racing banner or poster, maybe an Atomic banner or poster, a Mini-Z specific banner or poster if there is such a thing? My problem is I'm not having any luck finding any of those.

Is there a place they can be purchased from? Do I need to contact those manufacturers directly?

I'm very excited about this, and will be anxious to get the track/pit area completed as soon as we are moved in so that I can get a club meet scheduled. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

also search on Amazon for "racing banners" or "racing Flags" you can find flags for all sorts of race teams, including Mclaren, Ford, Chevy, Dodge, Toyota, Checkerd Flags, etc.

they vary in price but some are pretty descent.

over the years i've made many mini-z banners for local clubs. email me and i'll reply with jpg's. these can be printed banner sized on 24" roll without loosing resolution for banner quality. if you have access or a buddy has access to a large format plotter, it's quick and easy work. if no, would need to price local print shops to see what they charge for banner printing. might end up more expensive than purchasing generic banners off amazon or ebay.

Thanks guys. I've looked over tons of them on Amazon, and will continue to browse. Brian, that Kenon link says product not available. Must've sold out before I got a chance to purchase.

Arch, I'll shoot you an email shortly, and check out those jpg's. I'm not opposed to paying to have something printed.

I will be working on it Thursday through Sunday of this week. I probably won't get the raised platform built for another couple of weeks, but I plan to have the track, and the pit area set up by Sunday evening. I'll definitely share some pics as I progress.

Thanks again for all the help fellas. With all this good stuff I should have it looking prime in no time.

Well, getting set up hasn't quite gone as quickly as I'd hoped. I'm still working on lighting, and have some more drywall repairs to do before I can get started on the raised platform. I do have a layout down so I can run on it, and have a small pit/workbench area for now.
