Making your own Rubber flexible roads/tracks

Using PVA glue,join a few sheets of magazine paper together and pin to a board.

I brought this Mastic from the pound shop,you'll need three to give you about 15ft of track cut to lengths of 12 inches by 3/4 inches.

start by applying the mastic with even gaps across the paper,The next stage (no photo) is to keep applying until the very small gaps between the mastic.

using a ceramic tile spreader evenly smooth the mastic. Finish by gentle smoothing with a dry paint brush to flatten out any high points.

Black wash and dry brush

cut to size.

shows how thin you can make them,which lets you lay them up and over hills .


  1. Beautiful in its simplicity. probably give it a go after I get round to finishing my woods, rivers, hills, fencing etc. :O(

  2. What a fantastic idea! Thanks for this :)

  3. I might need to give this a try.
