A work-around for the cake slice proximity fitting
Remember this photo?
A diagram might help about need for work-around
And it’s a tight-ish fit. I say tight-ish as it will take some thickness of wood but not much. This has meant that I can put a thin strip to represent the cornice at the top of the ‘party wall’ but can’t put in the thicker skirting board because of the corner near the dining room.

Not so far found a nice vintage one that comes up big or is 1:12.
I do like a particular set I’ve seen, but am uncomfortable about paying the big bucks it costs. I know I’ll end up buying it, and, at the rate I keep buying ‘possibles’ and finding out they don’t do the job either, I could have bought the more costly set by now!
