Wall Height?

Postby Scatman1 » Fri Nov 09, 2012 11:57 am

Guys, need to install walls to my wood oval track, and was wondering what height should I go with? Will run 1/32 and 1/24

Thanks

Did you route an extra slot for wall mounting?

Or just going to add them around the table sides?

For walls/table sides, some 1x6 lumber would work great.

I like vinyl screen cap along with gutter guard fence for walls that are mounted around the curves.

Harry, thanks for the reply. Hall tall are the walls from the base of the track to the top of the wall?

About 6 inches.

I use Plastic gutter guard

After installing the screen cap in the slot, I drill pilot holes for the fence poles

I tap in 1/8 rod.

Use craft wire to mount the gutter guard to the poles. Pretty easy, it REALLY works keeping the cars inside and it looks realistic enough for me.

Your milage may vary of course.
