Baseboard progress

After completing the main board structures as well as the trestles and legs (pics to follow) I've completed all the sides on the fiddle yard board. Seen here from the operator's side, the fairly low screen from Joe Public's gaze will be augmented by an "add-on" sloping frontage which will give details of the layout and scale.

It's always worth reinforcing corners with triangular sections to allow for knocks during transportation. I also use them on the viewing side of the backscene as it helps avoid sharp corners in the sky.
