Walnut Creek, the new central module for BMT

This is built on top of my previous first attempt for this module. It got way to heavy, so removed the 1' by 3' braces and also only used one of the two plywood sheets. On that I added '' by 1' braces on each side instead. Now I got a very light structure and still sturdy.

The module is 45in * 72in (or 114.5cm * 182cm). With the cut of corners, that is absolute max what fits in my car with the back seats folded down.

The colour on some pictures are only added to get a first glimps on how it will look. Several layers of colour and texture is still to be added.

Only a few things to do until I can start add tracks and bridges, buildings etc.
