Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
My layout will have a long peninsula wall that I will need to construct in my basement layout room.
The layout in this area will be two levels - probably 39" and 59". My desire is that it is open above the top deck - so the top deck would be 59", there would be a backdrop of say 12", but above that to the ceiling (9' or 108") would be open. My reason for this is my past layout and many others i visit get that enclosed canyon feel and I want the room to feel more open. So there would be no valence above the upper level.
So what I am trying to figure out is how to build this wall so that it can support two levels, while also trying to keep it stable, and avoid legs under the lower level (idea is to use angular gussets to support the lower level). One idea is below - tie the wall studs into the ceiling but only maybe every 8'. So you would see these vertical studs going up, but I don't think it would be overly obtrusive.
Any ideas on how to build something like this totally stand alone? Maybe i'm trying to defy physics.
