My website store is now open, and I wanted to share one of my new items, which came from a user recommendation in my earlier email message "What's Next on the Agenda".... a small "fancy" bridge " was suggested, so here it is...

Of course the actual bridge kit will not come painted, and the figure is included in the photo simply to show scale. What is included are two arched trusses, two scaloped bridge railings, and a section of cobblestone road. There is slight damage to the bridge and railings. This item (#3537BRDG) is available now.... $21.00 US in plaster. A resin version is also available for $43.

The bridge railings extend just beyond the trusses, allowing room for a transition to other connected roadway or earth in your scene... overall, the item measures just short of 6" inches (about 15 scale feet) in length, and about 31/2 inches wide (9 scale feet). This type of footbridge was found throughout Europe, typically in cities and hamlets, although it could also be found near small farming communities.

Just drop me a line at scalemilitary.com if you would like to order, or have questions. I plan on making several versions of this style bridge... some wider, some longer, some with different railings... what da ya think?

A bridge is always cool
Too bad we can`t see the picture

But I`m sure that it`s a worthy addition to your catalog

Great work.

Wow Keith, that looks fabulous! The best thing is that its very generic, you could expect to see bridges like this one anywhere...it will suit in many theatres, many eras.

Sweet!

Ah I finally was able to see the picture

Great job dude and as Toni Already mentioned this is a very versatile bridge as it fit`s in so many theaters and also the fact that you can place a bigger road section in between is very good.
You have done a great job keith What`s next on the agenda????

Hey, that looks like it would work well with one of my products that I am getting ready to sell. I have a river embankment that has the same type of design...without the railing. I dont know if my product is as tall as this one. Cool, mabye I should get one and make a dio with it and my river embankment kit.

Keith simply Grand. That is a one of a kind bridge. Man I need 26 hours in a day to get to the dio's I want to build.

Faust - thanks for the cut and paste deal - I thought it was just me, but now I can see

I get some kinda grey field with the message: "Photo not available due to maintenance".

So I rightclicked on the image to get the URL and I pasted it in a new browser window

Keith FYI
At work and at home both high speed connections the bridge does not show up. An image that says "Photo Not Available Due to Maintenance. try back later"

The URL cut and paste method does work!

Keith, this is a really nice piece. Would you mind telling me what materials you use to sculpt the master? Do you make it in clay and then make a mold or something like that?

I use a combination of Plastruct styrene, wooden dowels, and balsa foam to create and original. Then i cast the mold in Silicone-based (not Tin based!) RTV. When done, I cast the master in Resin, and then do repeats in plaster.

Faust found this round about method of seeing the picture - it's a solid way of getting to the end result.
