The bridge

I spent a bit of time looking at trestle bridges on the internet to get a generic feel for what they look like, in particular the decking section, while I'm not 100% happy with the results, I feel I've tried pretty hard to make it look far better than a plastic kit example, the trestles themselves are made from scale timber, weathered to a greyish colour, the base is made up from a 19mm wide strip of 3mm MDF with 3mm strip hardwood veneered to the sides with a further strip of 1.5mm timber, weathered and stained and glued to give the stepped appearance of the prototype.
