Looks good so far. How big is it? Looks like each one is like 18'' x 18''

I am going 12X12 for the main boards. The buildings are all about four inches in depth, so it will leave a good bit of room. The canals will be 6 inches wide. I will also do some 6X12 ground pieces and some special area pieces, in case I don't want so many canals.

yep, for this though I am just doing the test piece. It will be a while before I can really hunker down and do the whole thing.

Nap, do you use the table saw in one of the photos to cut your MDF and foam into nice perfect squares? I don't have one and my attempts to do modular boards fall short because my jig saw skills are not perfect and pieces don't line up right.
