I'd be more positive PP and state most confidently that you have yet to start work on the fiddle yard.  ;)

Well of course you are right, I have yet to build it, I was just trying to appear modest instead of being a MODELLING GOD  :-[ :-[ I wish

I did see a set square in those pictures ... so it looks like you are trying to do it properly (though maybe you had just finished using it as a toy gun)  :D

I was actually using it as a toy gun, until the Domestic Overlord took it off me and told me to grow up. Ha I won though I had another one hidden  :P

my motto has long been, "better to be juvenile than senile"... though as the years pass, the line between them is becoming more blurry

joking aside, nice looking baseboards

Absolutely. I'm enjoying my second childhood. Anyone want to play hide and seek? :smackedface:

I've been asked to leave Ikea a few times, myself and a bunch of fellow students were playing hide and seek on each floor.

When found, you made your way to the next floor and hid again, first found was seeker on the next floor and responsible for ensuring everyone had actually been found on the previous floor.

As a sensible grown up I have actually done a little more on baseboard 1 and its nearly finished, all I have to do it attach the integrated backscene and I can start on the next board.

Glad things are progressing. But what exactly is a sensible grownup? Never come across one. :no:

Starting another layout to house even more Jubilee's sounds pretty sensible to me  :D

This layout will have lots of smaller locomotives, no Jubilees here :(

I managed to find a little bit of time to spend on the new baseboards today for Lugsdale Road, so I concentrated on sanding smooth some of the rough edges and fitting the integrated back-scene on board 1.

As can be seen from the underside of the bard the construction is really simple, though it has used up quite a lot of screws, I still have a little batter to fit in the top left section, I have it cut, just need to glue and screw it.

Board 1 is nearly complete, and looks okay, the back-scene board looks a little large at the moment but will allow me a good area to add some typical industrial buildings and attempt to paint a dirty urban scene what can I say I like a grotty layout).

I even did a little prep work on the cross members for baseboard 2 so the construction for this can start soon, if I can find some spare time.

The good news is though that despite using drills and saws I still have all my fingers :)

Some quick questions?

1. What is the ideal layout height for exhibitions and at home?
2. Is using brick bard a cheat, I know I have used it on Foster Street but is plasti-card more of a challenge?
3. What is the point of tofu?

I've used the height of 'normal' kitchen worktop for my layout. That's around 900mm.

For me, being a bit of a shorthouse this lets me work on the layout quite easily and under the boards without too much discomfort.

I'm no expert on such matters but think that those of limited height due to age or disability should have the chance of having a decent view of the layout too.

As for your other questions:

Printed brick on a suitably textured paper (woven?) can look good and easy to work with. Plasticard may offer a better look but can be harder to work. Take a look at the Wrenton thread to see what @RogerB has achieved!

Tofu - no idea whatsoever!

Look forward to your next update.
