The Ponti Bridge #1 by Multi Versal, on Flickr

The title is an homage to one of Neil Gaiman's excellent little pieces of fiction, entitled How To Sell The Ponti Bridge. This isn't supposed to resemble that bridge at all (this one isn't built entirely from precious stones, or at least not in the conventional sense). You'll notice that the minifigs all have eyebrows. This is because I didn't have any non-eyebrowed figures as seen in the regular Modulars. Same goes for the pirate - I'd run out of regular minifg heads, even counting those with eyebrows. =)

Excellent bridge, I like that you did something different than a normal park scene  :thumbup:
The railing on the bridge and sidewalk look very nice as well  :classic:

Neat little build. It is definitely different than the other parks and rec options. I hope the modulars don't get flooded!

I really like the mini sail on the ship.

Good luck in the contest! I know I have my work cut out for me.

Thank you all! I'm glad you like the pirate; I was afraid I might've been putting it over the top there. =J

I wish I thought of that Idea  :laugh:
I love it although it might look awkward when combined with other modulars (the water). Very nice nonetheless  :thumbup:

Well, you're always welcome to use it. Judging from what I've seen by you on the forums, I've no doubt you'd easily top this design. =)

I don't imagine it will, though. Slightly remarkable, perhaps, because of the two empty walls on each side of it, but the sidewalks corresponds well enough, I think, to not stand out much more than anything else at that height.
