|Four trays cover a 2'x2' square handily|
|I need more foamcore|
|I got some. The back edge in place|
|Proof of concept achieved :D|
|Mark Bedford Stormtroopers for scale|
The ramp up to the deck of the not-hill is 8" wide and 12" long. The support here will be foamcore wedges.
With all the foamcore secured, the next step will be to cover all the edges with thin card. The ramp will also get clad in thin card. The edges will have some small details added to break up the big grey stretches. I want to build three more sections, at least. Two of these will feature a canal. I plan extensions for the canal to stretch out over the rest of the board.
|It's pretty good size|
I'm super excited to be able to build these board sections finally. For a long time these were out of reach, since the only feasible way to build them (to me, at the time) was to use pink 2" insulation foam. Its just the way terrain gets done. Fast forward to now and this egg tray reinforced foamcore monster. It is light, sturdy, square, and cheaper. For a sheet of insulation foam I'd pay ~$40. For 11 dozen eggs, 2 sheets of foamcore, and a 4'x2' sheet of MDF I pay ~$20... and I can eat the eggs. It works out a little better in favor of the egg tray boards when I work in the cost of tools needed to work the foam. Seriously it sucks to work with.
