As for the height personally I would have liked it 6 inches lower, but in order for the perspective modelling to work the height does need to be high otherwise you see things you shouldn't!
Now I understand, thank you.

Seeing as I posted straight after Saturday's show just in case for those who missed it back on page 7.
And hopefully those who are going today are there so I don't spoil it for them..
Video (Sorry its so long) I think I missed 2 layouts out from checking.
Photo's I am currently going through... the good the bad and the ugly ones..
(Most images are now uploaded)
Great show as always, and well done to those who organised, and ran the event, good standard of layouts and trades as per normal.

By the time I managed to get anywhere near Aylesbury, it was late afternoon. The height of it wasn't a worry (I'm 5'7" and that's all you're getting), but the ambient light had darkened to the extent that I thought it was going to rain on the layout.
Still, at least I managed to see it. These things you only need to see once so you don't get too disappointed.
I'm the same height and had a nagging feeling (later confirmed by a trip to the gallery) that there was a fair bit of it I couldn't see at all. That said, what I could see was extremely good.
I gained an impression that it was built by six-footers (or with observers of that stature in mind) and 4 - 6" lower would have suited me much better.
I didn't get a hop up to avoid the embarrassment of (a) getting a hop up and (b) having it collapse under my weight.
