Today's build will be the new CDX Blocks Sidewinder. This is the front of the box
The back of the box
Unboxing all of the parts. I really like how they come presorted.
First step was to build the base for the lift structure
It really went together quickly
Next was the base plates for the rest of the ride. The wide area will be where the loop will go.
Entire circuit of base plates in place.
Time to start building supports
The first drop supports
Floater hill and run back to the lift
Pulling the chain lift
Now it is time to add the track and cross ties
Here's that floater hill I mentioned earlier
The toughest part was getting the loop right
Finished product before I add the train
Train now on the track, time to do some test runs
Had to do some adjusting to get the train to complete the circuit properly
It really flies down the first drop now
Going through the loop.
It turned out great and will be an excellent addition to our growing line up of CDX products already on display at both work and our house.
