thank out all very much.
with my ideas and the process, i have found what works best for me is to develop the first idea and refine that idea sometime 3 times. i don't try and complicate the process with trying to get repeated ideas. my ideas usually come in a visual form.in medieval times people with a lot of ideas or imagination were usually drowned at birth
 there are a lot of pieces to ship and pack not just the model they are what i call the support items.they all fit into my little blue hard shell cabin bag
my list is
 -baseboard thick 16 mm plywood.with all the terrane in place.
-back scene 4 mm plywood.painted clouds.
-stand 9 mm, varnished face.
-lights rig 3 pieces 2 specially fabricated pivots,  brass aluminium and 4 mm plywood face painted.mix of yellow and white leds
-3 d items[model] packed in foam core and bubble wrap.
-separate detail items.
-2 power transformers 1 for the lights 1 for train control,12 volt
-1 train controller non- digital, simple.
-power board for the transformers.
-powerpoint adaptor for different countries.
-extension power lead
-and the last item an information card this will be placed up the flagpole on the lighting valance yet to be built.

I'm with Russ -- the fact that you not only create these gorgeous models, but also create ways to safely transport them, is staggering.

you're an artist. In many ways. What a colourful and attracting item.

Cheers,
