Some ideas for buildings, the large one is much more a general idea of size than the others. For the core structures of the thin tower and the double-stack I'm planning on using empty cans (classic) and foamcore panels like the main flooring for the walkways.
These are my original rough drawings of 3x3 table combinations. Red squares are buildings and blue lines are walkways between them at varying heights. The walkways will be similar to the bridges, I'd like to be able to make them up to 16" long but we'll see what supports models when I start doing sub assembly (essentially, eons from now when the board and buildings are done).
I originally thought I would be doing the cutting myself, but some young and helpful lad at Rona set me up pretty huge. I got this stack of 1/2" MDF cut into 1' squares for a whopping $3.39 after hunting for some scrap.
Special shout-out goes to the person that cut a 4" strip off the long side of a 8'x4' sheet. That's a win!
I've already measured and penciled out some of the tiles.
Added bonus: I found something I can use for mesh at the dollar store. I love that they advertise plastic mesh as being rust proof
Going to try and find time to cut all my foam into the requisite bits needed for this project this week. Woo!
