Blog- The Strawberry Line - Cheddar hybrid baseboards

Two updates in as many weeks?

As I mentioned in the last update, I'm infilling the baseboard tops with 15mm model foam acquired from Panel Systems. For the two embankment boards the foam is cut to fit between the ply stiffeners. For the 'flat' boards it will sit on top alongside the ply track bed. It's glued on with 'No More Nails' - actually the local Proper Job version 'Instant Nails' at £1 per tube.

Lots of photos that probably explain things a bit better. I'm using off cuts to make up the embankment. I think I've got some 50mm Trylon foam off cuts from my Clevedon layout somewhere which might be a bit easier.

Full size Templot printed off to get the trackbed cut. I can almost see the trains!
