    We carry out a numerical real-space study on electrons confined in a two-dimensional triangular lattice of repulsive scattering centres. The system represents a qualitative model of molecular graphene, where the electron gas is confined between the scattering molecules in a hexagonal configuration. Our main interest is, on one hand, in the comparability of a finite system (flake) and a fully periodic one, and, on the other hand, in the role of the Coulombic electron-electron interactions and the relative strength of the scattering centres. Our real-space study shows in detail how the density of states of the fully periodic system-containing the Dirac point-is gradually formed as the size of the flake is increased. Good qualitative agreement with the experimental density of states is obtained. Our study confirms the minor role of the electron-electron interactions with selected system parameters, and shows in detail that large scattering amplitudes are required to obtain a distinctive Dirac point in the density of states.
