There is one question I have yet to resolve. How to assemble, store and transport this thing! I dislike sectional boards as the edges are always so visible so I would prefer to glue this all together into a 6x4 or 8x4 complete board. The location of the buildings and river and such like is also a problem as they dont match the edges of the boards.
I guess I should glue the foam to a sheet of 6mm MDF or something similar? I'm then paranoid about the edges being damaged... especially as i will need to move it about the country. Should I surround the outside in a box structure of ply or MDF or something? I can probably borrow a van in which it will travel and the buildings will be held in place by magnets so I am not too worried about them getting damaged but the other end of the board is going to be wooded with sea-foam trees and the trees will be a nightmare to transport. I'm also worried about stuff falling on the board and damaging the foam. My natural reaction to this is to make a wooden box with handles that completely surrounds the board? Those of you that transport large terrain boards regularly... what do you do - advice please?
