Cut-out for a new plug-in module
My plan is to break up the exhibition view of the layout between the wings into three distinct diorama-style views. This requires four view blockers, including two end blockers to soften the harshness of the theatre-type vertical wings.

To accentuate perspective, the view blocker will be approximately 0-gauge and consist of trees, telephone pole, post-mounted post box, shrubs and hedges. Two large tree armatures are ready to be foliated at the Missenden Autumn Weekend coming up.
