Not practical for your line Woodie.

The brakes on your cars ain't that good!


Kim-

A great model of an unusual bridge--is it freelanced, or is there a prototype?

Lots of neat little details--the riveted over ends on the ladder rungs-

The oil leaking down the hydraulic cylinder-

the small piece of rope tied around the post-

A top rate job--can we see more of your work?


Herb :old dude:

Yer right Herbie. The MRy would only have a lift bridge over a dry wash to let the Chupacabra herds go through.

Kim-like before...now, do you have any more photos? (besides the ones on the other site)

The bridge (and the photos) look great - the excellent reviews are well earned.

I don't know if any of the moderators know of some way of collecting all the pictures into one thread, so they don't get lost.
 

Whether or not this can be done, the photos are all worth any time I (or anyone else) would spend finding them.

Please don't take this as a criticism - it isn't - I just want all your photos to be easy to find once they disappear from the front page.

Let's face it, I wouldn't be in a position to criticise right now - even if I wanted to. Even if I had a suitable camera (or a hosting account to post the photos to), I don't have any projects worth taking photos of. I am, of course, working on this - but (for various reasons) I'm not expecting anything to report any time soon.
 

Returning to the bridge (and the photos), I suspect that you've probably built similar models before. I also get the impression that a lot of observation (and knowledge of prototypes) has gone into this model.

In other words, I really like what I'm seeing - and I'm looking forward to any future postings.


All the best,

Huw.

thanks everybody
i finding my way in how to post a lot  pictures under one heading.to tell you the truth i am finding it very fustrating at the moment.photo bucket shrunk all my home page to a very small size and it seems that it cant easily be fixed.picasa seems to offer the same services but the text ,lot of picture thing is a bit of a challenge.
my hydrolic bridge is a static model even though i have given it a lot of thought about how to make it work.the first change would to build it out of metal-stryine is just too fragile.the power could be miniture hydrolics,chain or concelead electric motor.
this is my first bridge of this type,believe me it pulled it to pieces a few times but it worked out in the end.it is based on the modern military hydrolic moveable bridges.the only referance i could find was a online modelling catalog.
the bridge will eventually be used on my modern industral rail display.this display is taking a long time really,i keep finding things that i want to model and they all have to have there place.my time period is about 1973 onwards.this world is hydrolics ,contaners.roller doors, material handling machines.this worlds materials are the marine salvage of the past.i will post pictures as it evolves.the size is 2 foot wide,1 foot 6inches deep and 1 foot 3 inches heigh
cheers kim

Kim-the bridge obviously works! I thought you said it was static. Just because you need to "help" it with an "outside power source" don't mean it is a static model...Poseable? Operational? Manual? Those apply.
