    Saturday saw me with my carpenters hat on:rolleyes:
    Problem was, how to move a 16 foot , 5 piece model lay out,, useing one van, also being able to store the structure with minimum space.;)
    Well here it is. This will take two sections on lower level ,,,, 48 inches by 34 inches.
    The middle level takes two sections,,, 48 inches by 30 inches.
    And the top level takes the last section 48 inches by 30 inches.

    Thought it might give some folk an idea on "how to" .
    That`s when you want to start doing a few shows .:D
