An Industrial Narrow Gauge Adventure - the layout part one

The two kitchen cabinet doors have been glued and screwed together. A corrugated cardboard sub base has been glued in place with my hot glue gun. This area will form the main operating part of the layout with the forward area being a section of canal as you can see in the plan below.

I have reinforced the front section of the canal with strips of brown wrapping paper applied over uPVA glue. This forms a strong but light core onto which I will be modelling more detail. The two doors were picked-up for a bargain price as they were being discontinued.

Each door is 700mm tall x 300mm wide. So this Mk I design is 700mm long with a 300mm high backdrop.
