I have rounded the corner

Hi   I have brought, my highly transportable layout with me, when I travelled to Scotland to stay with family at Christmas.   Look up into the sky, and you see wide open spaces. The plywood backscene support has corners, something the sky does not have. I have use a layer of 2mm thick card to remove the corners from the front surface of the backscene support.       The actual backscene will be a think sheet of card, thin enough to be rolled up and held in a tube to protect it for tra

Puting Back's Up

The back's in question are the supports which will hold the backscene in position!   I could build a layout without a backscene, like the Pizza by Mark Fielder, but I have decided I want to have a backscene on my micro layout to complete the layout. Because the layout has to fit into a case for transport, it will have a fixed one, and an extension, mainly sky to set the scene. What I have been working on today is the support, for the backscene. This is made of 3mm plywood, it's height is 95mm.
