Anyhoo.. recent Freemo building has given me a little more confidence in knocking bits of wood together, so when Nick Palette asked if I'd like to bring Brett to TVNAM, I couldn't really say 'no'!
This weekend I have built two simple wooden frames, using my existing Freemo legs, and a test erection (ooer) shows me that it should all work okay. I need to enlist SWMBO to make a curtain for the front of the layout, and make a few tweaks, but all systems are go!
Unless I spend much more time and money, I won't be displaying Brett with lights or sound.. and because my normal viewing angle is about a foot higher than that which I'll be showing it at TVNAM, I'd like to tidy up a couple of details on the layout before then too.
As to the longer term.. I don't intend to start hauling Brett around shows, even if I get asked. I have my doubts that a day on my feet, plus the noise, the travel and lugging about will really appeal to me. TVNAM is an exception as it's such a specialist show and has a community feel to it.
What I might do is actually try to sell the layout, I've already started making plans for a new one, extending around the walls.. early plans look this but are subject to change..
