As I mentioned in my last post, the last thing anybody wants to do is spend hours and hours on a structure only to find that, after putting it on the layout, it doesn’t fit in the way you expected. It’s not something that can be worked out on paper either. Mock ups are a quick way to get a sense for overall shapes and proportions, possible problem areas, and features you may want to omit. The mock up above was made out of foam board and is more developed as far as final shapes and lines than what I posted previously. It wouldn’t make sense to model the entire Jai Alai complex but, as luck would have it, I do have space for the primary structure.

Here’s a closer look.
