Will be using these to place my TV crew on. I used Evergreen styrene & matt board jigs. The planking is styrene covered with real wood.

That is a great idea, they look really good.

I've used the Evergreen styrene for body posts and roll cages, I guess what you can make with it is only limited by your imagination.

They honestly look great, as do the other items you've shared here and elsewhere, you've clearly got a good eye and some real ability.

My track sees regular social use so I've gone the way of brass and thin timber for my tv tower and marshall posts, that way when cars dissapear into the scenery the scenery isn't demolished as often or as severely. The sacrafice is they don't look quite as ornate.

I find that hard to believe Phil...maybe you need to use more appropriate marshall proof structural material.....concrete reinforcing bars perhaps :-)
