Building the upper level baseboard

The 300 inch challenge micro layout now has its top level baseboard (or benchwork for our American cousins) in place. Unfortunately this happened with only a week to go to the Bassetlaw (North Notts) Railway Society annual exhibition the layout wasn’t part of the 300 inch competition. lets hope it makes it in time for next year.

For those interested in the detail I used the cardboard mockup as a basis for cutting out the real thing. This is described in a previous article Mocking things up is really useful, and allows an amount of trial and error before things become permanently attached. I’d recommend the use of old cardboard boxes to anyone for this purpose!
