This one has been asleep for longer than it really ought to have been, but there has been progress on other fronts.
The plan all along has for the three baseboards to mount on to four trestles, and up to very recently I've been struggling to come up with a suitable design (to be fair I've not given it a vast amount of thought). I want a cheap (as free as possible, given that there are better avenues for the modelling budget), robust and universal system.
I have (somewhere, either at home or in work) a box with nice brass hinges in it. As usual, I can't find it
. Thankfully a quick peruse of the Screwfix website uncovered a pair of steel hinges for £0.70 or so. Nicely within budget.
So, the plan is to dissect a pallet or two (free), and concoct a suitable trestle design using sanded pallet timber and Screwfix hinges. The target is under £2.00 (£2.50 if I'm really pushed) per trestle. Lets see what happens...
