In a fit of nostalgia I have decided to put my Tasca firefly on a broken bridge the way the old matchbox 1/76 firefly was displayed. Close examination of the old pieces show that the bridge if extended would just continue upwards or if mirror imaged would come to a sharp point in te middle.

Copyright Matchbox.

Mine will be in 1/35 so I can tweak the layout to correct this. Anyhoo here are the bridge sides carved from plaster.

I know I have scribed the lines too deep but I'll fill these with mortar/modelling paste.
