    Well I'm a novice, but what the hell, have to start somewhere. Currently searching the internet for ideas. I have already bought my Scalescenes printable sheet. Tomorrow is going to be 40 degrees Celsius, here in Melbourne, so what else to do but see what I come up with.

    Go for it Phil ...... The great warrior. :avatar: best of luck, I look forward to seeing what you come up with. Not all the best ideas are the biggest. Sometimes small is best.... More character.

    Good luck anyway.

    Cheers

    Just a paper mock up just to test concept and scale. Just been using a photo off the net as a guide. The scale is oo by my judgement and by eye. Might have bitten off more than I can chew, but will keep going and see what I end up with. Found that my printer has run out of yellow toner, so at the moment printed in black and white.

    Not too much done. Just showing Scalescenes TX46 Random Ashlar. Construction method. Paper prototype and one finished pylon. Have made the pylons slightly taller and thinner at the top. The tee square and sloop, I made in form 3. Still haven't worked out how I'm going to do the top section, but will work that out using another paper prototype when I have finished making all the pylons. 🤓

    Made template for sides. Although all the pylons are the same length, some will be hidden and at least two others will have pointed foundations added. How did you know the cutting board was stolen Kim?:avatar:

    Update so far. Constructed foundations, and buttress (Hope that's what they are called). Just showing construction method and mockup of where they go. As you can see it's my own crazy design and method. It is based on a real bridge, The Malmsbury Viaduct in Victoria Australia (Very loosely based as I haven't quite captured the height and scale of it. So it's just Phil's bridge). On the plus side, it has been constructed using 98% Scalescenes printouts, and so far I'm fairly happy with the results. it's going to be very hot in Victoria today, so I'm hoping to get a fair bit more done today.

    Very good build and as you say ........ Scalescenes all the way ....... Can't argue with that. A very good build so far. Now ...... Just to frame it.

    Fantastic build?

    Very hot in Victoria today so spent the day adding some fine detail. Now the tricky bit putting it into some landscape. Never done any of this before, so I'll just have to dive in and give it ago. Better check out some of Gorrmos videos :avatar:[​IMG]

    That is very nice Phil, great job. :thumbs::thumbs::thumbs:

    It reminds me of the bridge at Richmond in Tasmania...

    Absolutely excellent build for a first attempt Phil, well done.
    If I could make one small suggestion? where there is the edge of card showing white on corners etc, just run the tip of a black felt tip pen down to disguise it, something like a Sharpie pen has a finer tip than a permanent marker pen.
    Great work.

    Cheer's, Pete.

    Thanks for the tip Pete used soft grey lead pencil to disqise card edge. I'm struggling with the landscape for the bridge.. I'll keep going, and see what happens. If all goes pear shaped will enter bridge without landscape. This is how far I have got. Packed it away for tonight, looking for inspiration

    Hi Ron this is the bridge my model is based on. Up stream from the bridge is a resovoir. I think there is only water flowing under the viaduct, when resovoir is overflowing. Never done scenery before. I think the other problem I'm having is the fact I don't want to ruin my hardwork so far.
