How long does it take?

One of the reasons I provide Economy track planning is because I personally enjoy the process and I use it as a way to relax. Typically I will spend around 1 hour an evening working on your plan. This allows me to provide you with a well thought out and researched plan. Due to this, the time necessary to complete a layout plan varies widely but most plans are complete within 1-2 weeks. A large complex plan such as the steel mill below can however take 6-12 weeks depending on the subject matter to be modeled.

 

Layout Plan resizing

If you have already found your Dream layout but the plan is too large, don’t let that stop you!  In most cases I can resize a layout plan to fit your space.  Please contact me for detail on how I can make your dream a reality.
