Coming Soon...new battlefield

Greetings everyone,
 I decided I wanted my battlefield back...so the slot car track had to go.  We're replacing all the 1950s doors in the house with new ones, SO....I've got a new table, this time I'm working right on the wood and not going thru styrofoam. I'm going to build it against the wall all around the room. I'm figuring I got about 35 feet of space in length and about 2 and a half feet in width, which frees up the center of the room. As you can see from the pics the room is quite large. I have about 40 buildings to work with.
I dont know if I'll use them all or add to them....we will see. This time around I want to make this battlefield / town as real as I possibly can.  Coming soon.

  4. Looking forward to see how your project unfolds. As great as the racetrack was (btw. What happened to it?) a battlefield this size will be even more impressive.

  5. Bring it on Captain! What a wonderful experience to watch you grow your battlefield/town from the base up - something I know I will find so inspirational.

    1. Thank you Rodger...I'm looking foreward to mud filled roads, dead trees and burned out houses. It will look like war was hell.

    1. For some reason , i wasnt into the track like I was 10 years ago and I have to much time in the miniatures to shelf the Civil Wr project. I have the room to do them both
      but I'd rather spend the time on the Civil War.
