Modular Fence System
#11
I constructed the first sections, two like my initial draft and two the way pendrake recommended.

I think I will go with my initial design, as on the one hand I like the join between sections better (it hides the join better in my opinion) and on the other hand I only have the two half-posts at the join fix, the rest of the section I can design however I like to.

Next I will design a little helper tool that will help me to glue the half posts into place more exactly and at an exact 90° angle.

I built two helpers, one to get the horizonzal bars at the same height, and one to align the vertival end posts.

The first eight pieces are done, ready to be painted:

Awesome. Good idea to make a jig to help with spacing.

Yes sure, I will build some. The concept sketch for them can be seen in the first post.

The next six modules are done. These are all damaged to some degree, never thought that I would ever use a heavy hammer in my wargaming projects...

Only six more straight ones to do, those will get some more gates.

It always fun to see some damage done on PURPOSE once in awhile. Wink

Yes, that's right Smile Although, my wife looked a bit strange... I am always very testy when she like puts things on top of my fences, or moves them 'out of the way' (my version is, they belong where I put them to dry...) and tell her to be cautious... And then she sees me attacking them with a hammer...  Rolleyes



I finished the last 6 straight pieces. One has an 8cm wide door (allowing 4 20mm bases abreast to pass), the other two have a 2cm wide door.

I prepared all the edge bases, cutting them into shape and bevelling the edges.

The connecting posts and one of the edge posts are glued to all the bases.
