A bridge too far?
Whilst waiting for glue or paint to dry thoughts have turned to the exit to the fiddle yard. Another bridge but this time a departure from my norm. A plate girder this time. The abutments are from our old friend-mounting card. The plate girder part is from a 2mm scale footbridge on one side and a home made facsimile on the other. Built on the sque, this also uses the Metcalf stone faced card as the Goods and Engine sheds.
One thing with Metcalf building sheets, they are thicker than brick paper and the edges are a devil to mitre being thin. The answer is to run a soft pencil down the exposed edges which seems to disguise them enough. Maybe a bit more after seeing the photo!
