Modelling Tip Of The Day – 15

This Modelling Tip Of The Day is an ongoing series, in which we’ll be posting a modelling tip that may be of use to the newbie right up to the seasoned modeller.

Today’s tip is:

Baseboard supports


When building a layout there are various options for supporting baseboard. On legs, tressels, wall mounted or suspended from the ceiling. Another option is for the baseboard to sit on top of units which would give handy storage under the layout. For the legs, you can opt for bespoke made to measure legs or tressels.

Companies such as the Little Layout Company, for example, can make Tressel stands which is ideal if you have a portable layout. The tressels can be height adjusted which is great for locations where the floor may not be level.

For permanent layouts use bespoke made to measure baseboard legs. It’s also worth using good quality timber for the baseboard legs.

For wall mounted layouts look at using angled wall mounting brackets either the L shaped type or angle with wall slot rack type.
