My typing skills leave a lot to be desired... including acuracy and speed.

No worries. Thanks to both of you I have ordered two cans of the product which will be a good start.

Here's an update.
2 x 2 play surface is finished.

Next I will work on the street lines and then the building for the open lot. After that I will work on some street lights and some accessories such as bus bench, trash cans and phone booth.

I'm really interested in finding out how you will handle the traffic signalization system (traffic lights, lanes and such), cuz that is something that imo adds a lot to an urban table like this one.

The current plan is to magnetize them. I have the GF9 adhesive steel sheets that I can cut to fit the base of elements such as street lamps, fire hydrants and traffic lights. Still need to figure out how to make those elements though.

I guess for these elements (mailboxes, traffic signs and such) I'd purchase them. I remember having some cool looking things to play with when I was a kid. Maybe this summer I could try and dig up some oldies from my basement :p

Those tiles are a really good idea! I'm going to "borrow" this idea for my own Pulp City gaming board, if you don't mind. :)

Feel free to use what ever you think works for you. :)

Since your dimensions seem to work well could we have a brief summary of all?

As I understand it:
- 12"x12" tile
- 5" wide roads (2 1/2" lanes; 3.5" sidewalks/pavements?)


What thickness of ply tiles do you use? What thickness of cork (it looks 'just right' to my eye)?

Thanks.

The plywood is 1/2" thick.
The cork board is about 1/4" thick.

The side walks are cut 3 inches wide so the street is a total of 6" wide. I made my streets wider than the world works stuff because there are some 1/48 scale semi trucks that I'm wanting to buy. :)

Hope this helps.

That does look good.

I'm thinking about a collapsing table that is made from four 18" by 18" squares. I'm working on some design sketches.

I'll be very interested to see the tractor trailers when you get them. I'm pretty happy with my 1/43 Hongwell cars and trucks.

That is excellent, I use to have those 2x2 boards but left them in the US after the last GenCon and been playing on a floor mat (the pvc) I bought at Home Depot sales and painted "street grey". Affordable and easy to store. The trick is to paint the back of it and not the top part - this way the paint sticks better.
