New tramway model under construction for display at Milland Rural Fair

New tramway model under construction for display at Milland Rural Fair on 1st June.
Called Idylton Vale, it is a 1:76 (00)model of a suburban centre, with parades of shops; cinema; a Southern Electric art nouveau station and a tramway in a central street reservation, together with  a suggestion of an arterial road with the essential roundabout.
This is a quick build model using as much ready built or commercial card kits with RTR trams (Bachmann ). Later the trams will be replaced with more correct London types.
The possibility of using Ikea Apa storage boxes to form the layout structure is being investigated. Follow the pictures of design and construction here. ?
