WW2Z - V1 project planning

I have finished building and painting my V1.  A very simple model with a paint job to match.

Until the track arrives to take measurements from, I am limited as to what I can do for the V1 project at this stage, but I have made some concept sketches for the ramp as well as put the boards aside I intend to build the ramp on:

 Basically the ramp will be split in two (theory) to make it easier to transport and store. This is mainly because I will be using two pieces of MDF for the base and I have not the slightest clue as to how to join them so as not to come apart.

 Having just typed that, I just had a thought - don't glue the ramp to the MDF - instead make a one piece ramp and glue the legs to small section of MDF I have lying around.  This will make it easier to place on gaming tables, and enable me to make it a bit longer if need be.

Regardless, this is all in the initial planning stages, and anything can change between now and the finished product.

 Once production starts I will scan my concept drawings and post them for others to see.

It's got all the hallmarks of a great project and is coming togethere nicely.
As the rails are still to arrive it'll give you a lot of time to ponder over how you'll proceed.
