Bridges For My Battle Mat

As I discussed in Episode 20 of “In The Game Room”, I wanted to get rid of the printed overpasses and create a couple of 3-dimensional bridges.  I put together the basic structure of the bridges today and tested them out and it looks like they will work fine.  Now I’ll some details, texturing to look like concrete and then color.

Still trying to decide how (or if) I’ll glue down the printed river section and road section.  I have a feeling that if I glue them down they will crease and/or crack when the game mat is rolled up for storage.

A few new terrain pieces

I guess I’m sort of known for large terrain pieces (after all I did build an Eiffel Tower in 1/285th scale) and when I build pieces in 285th scale, they are actually 285th scale … not some “that looks right” scale that is in between vehicle scale and ground scale.  So here are two more pieces I’m working on, a wharfside container crane and a vehicle bridge,,, pieces for two different projects.  I’ll probably do two more of the cranes for a total of three.
