Installed the second LED strip today.
The light level will probably be okay when I can install the outer LED strips as well.
I have to build the valance first, so it'll be in the right places.
My plan is to have the valance about 2-3" outside of the layouts edge.
The LED strips has a 40° light angle will be mounted 20° inward so it will light straight down at the front, and towards the backdrop.

Started the backdrop painting. One wall is sky painted with clouds.
The backdrop is 60' long and 4'6" tall. I use regular wall paints.
I will wait a bit to paint the landscape until after I've started the benchwork.

That sky is the work of an artist. It is more than a casual hobby painting!
