RE: [Z_Scale] Re: Humidors and Z Scale and Bookcases
- Hello Uwe,
I would only use the Leksvik for a one off and mount the actual layout on a
board to slide onto it not extending to others. I experienced the stopping
of a range mid collecting it, remember the Fjord range got the small pieces
and just as I was about to get the large chest of drawers and the wardrobe
it was gone:-(
I had noticed the BILLY had changed but I don't collect that as I like solid
pine or birch.
I hope they bring the glass topped single drawer coffee table back, the new
one with two drawers or glass lids is too small inside for a nice sized
layout even in Z scale, it would only do a brief case size.
The IKEA adjustable metal table legs would be good for a layout. Though
Lidel and Aldi often do great metal trestles that are between ?4 to ?8
sterling which are absolutely ideal for layout legs as they take up to 100
Kg and are a great deal less effort than doing woodwork.

this system... :-)
I also have a small IVAR shelf in use. A lesson learned after I
couldn't extend another shelf system because the manufacturer stopped
the production of it. I only needed some small parts then... but no

this. This would make it easier to adjust the shelfs in level to each
other. An adjustable foot in the shelf legs would help too. If you
want to go to shows, it is a must anyway.

Even with BILLY, another classic IKEA bookcase I got problems, since
they changed the length of the wider bookcases from 90 cm to 80 cm at
sometime. It's only IVAR that is around unchanged since one can
