The layout ended up an awkward thing: at 600 mm long too long to be a cute nick-nack and too short to be operatable. And the idea of increasing the apparent size by looking from one side at one end and the other side at the other end did not work for me because I would now rather have a sky backscene, which can not easily be fitted.
