My baseboards are about 41" or just over 1000mm high.  Somewhere in the 900 - 1000 mm seems to work best.
With kind regards
Laurence

1000mm for me, too. Another advantage is that the layout can be seen at about eye-level when sitting, depending on your height, of course.

Just over 1100mm for my layout as it allows me to grovel underneath to the other side (but only on a very good day!)

I think I may have to make it even higher, but will it make it difficult for potential exhibition viewers?

A pair that functioned properly would suit me just fine :(

Well despite being knocked for six health wise lately I have managed to do a little bit more on the layout boards and I now have two pretty much completed.

All I have to do now is complete the fiddle yard bard and the legs, but even woodworking GODS like me need a little rest  :angel:

Anyway with the beards at this stage I can start to transfer the plan onto them, and to do this I tend to cut some graph paper to cover the area I'm looking at and then transfer my plan on to this. I cant be the only person to do this so if I'm going over old ground, I'm sorry.

What I do then is to transfer the details from my I initial plans onto this graph paper "life sized" I find this helps me to actually visualise how the area will feel before I start either producing mock up buildings or even the finished ones. I will need a lot of buildings for this layout, and lots of terraces, which is a good thing? I mean all that dirt and grot.

So the fun begins, all I have to decide now is if I should revert back to plasti-card construction, ir continue using card???
