    Nibiru's Aussie Legends could use a refresh, even without an actual PBR update... just to get those chromes shining and the head and tail lights looking like they have a glossy cover...
    I did that on a M1 Procar mod and it greatly improved it...

    The James Hardie Centre is pretty well done...just sorting the AO mapping.

    Coming along well.

    Almost done........just a few textures and polygons to tidy up and that will do. Stupid light bleeding though....

    The surrounding terrain needs to be levelled off than I can sit it on the ground.

    So many hours in this. I guess 100+.

    The old Castrol Tower is a bit of a mission this one too. Texture is a test. Will make one now that is better.

    Trying to find the font is hard so I am using old sticker images....it is correct.

    The main grandstand is prety well done and yes, baby poo brown is the colour.

    That will do.....it is as good as it needs to be. That is the majority of the new buildings done.
    Castrol GTX is correct for the 1985 track.
    Now to work around the track and add in inner and outer roads. Another huge job :D:p

    Working around the track. It is significantly narrower in the 1980s than now, in some sections 1 to 2 meters.

    Lots of work to do...adding driveways and the outer roads. Hope to make huge progress before New Year.

    The Falcon Hartops were 100mm+ wider than the current Supercars....as were the Falcon Group C sedans ;):)

    Doing the driveways around the track.....there are so many lol.

    All dirt back then, no sealed driveways. At least another week's work to finish of the little roads and houses / buildings.
