Hoop top fencing quandry

Postby kjiwizard » Tue Aug 07, 2018 3:07 pm


I have bought some n brass hoop top fencing and cannot decide where the fencing stops and the discardable bits start. Also, how do you fix it to the layout. I think in real life it would have had concrete base or at least longer legs to bury

Any thoughts?

Many thanks

Usually use glue to fix it to the layout but not sure about the fence itself as I'm trying to imagine what it looks like.

Post a picture of the fencing otherwise as Mountain says we have to try and imagine it.

If the fencing doesn't have any longer 'legs' to stick into the ground, you can always solder or glue some pins or brass wire at intervals to insert into pre-drilled holes in the ground.

This one.... https://www.nbrasslocos.co.uk/kitimages/nlside/n22771%20hoop%20top%20railing%203ft.gif

I feel once cut away from the fret, small holes are drilled into the baseboard surface at the correct distsnce by using the fence as a guide and then the bottom legs are glued into the holes. :D

Broken? It was working correctly when I left it.
