Hi Cookiechem,

Normally I would say that your boards will need bracing at 1ft centres but you might be able to do away with bracing if you used a good quality thick (18mm) plywood as a baseboard instead of your proposed MDF.

I'm not a great fan of MDF at the best of times and, bearing in mind that you probably need to work to tighter tolerances than for war-gaming when laying and jointing track, I think you might be tempting fate to use it without bracing.
