i. Here is the basic plan for "Brafferton". The yard lines aren't sketched in yet, but I've incorporated that into the subsequent 3D model. Ultimately the layout will be circular, but to meet the Challenge Rules I've restricted the staging to keep the overall area within 9.42 sqft.
ii. I spent a day or so making a 1/8th scale 3D model to get a better understanding of how the layout might look. The "baseboards" actually represent how the real ones will be constructed.
iii. When modelling, I often do little doodles as below. These aren't necessarily accurate or used in the actual model making. However I use them as inspiration and to get ideas bouncing around.
