Bridge

Postby AntV8 » Wed Dec 09, 2009 12:30 am

Hi All, Thought I would show you some pics of my bridge. The overall length is just short of 6m with a center level area of 1.2m. Each tunnel section in 550mm wide and 355mm high. The road width is 605mm. The road way after it's first outing has now been finished with floor paint with sand sprinkle into the paint. There is also lighting in each tunnel and street lights will be done to line the rails on the top! The bridge has been made on the CNC mill using ply!

Ah but now it has grip on the surface as when you was going over it was a tad slippy ;)

Just thought I would show you all the new end ramps for the bridge to assist with a much smoother arc for the up and down, hopefully version 3 will work a treat :)

This will also clip into the tile system used by Pete or have its on mini on ramps :)

Yeah I agree, the soft curves look like they allow easy crossing.
