Fascia cut down and crafting

Let the Fascia fun begin.

Due to family holidays, I was not able to get much done over the Christmas break as we were away for most of it.

After returning on Saturday and completing the very long list of clean up chores, it was time to get back into the shed and make a start on the fascia.

Per my earlier post, the rough in work had been completed. It is now time to sculpt the top of the fascia down and form a few mountains as well as cut holes for control panels, port holes for hidden track and shelves at towns for car cards etc.

I managed to get about 5 sheets done yesterday with the 6th one on the bench ready to cut out.

As the control panels are already made and mounted, I should be able to just screw them into place once the painting is done. Per the large hole at North Creek, I need to make the shelf behind it for the car card boxes, as well as places to sort car cards etc.

Here are a few pictures of the work done so far. Five done, 16 to go!..

Till next time, and much more MDF dust later.!...


  1. Looking very spiffy. Once you paint it you will not even notice the small cut outs for the staging tracks.

  2. Damn Brendan... Your smashing it! Looks great already. Jas.
