Here is my current project.  An older Iron/Steel Arch type bridge.  It is being built for a small town display our LUG is working on.  I'll post some more pics when it is finished and installed.  Comments and feedback welcome.
Thanks for looking.

Interesting and excellent bridge 'soundwave_sw'.....any close up shots of the supports and truss work.....pretty hard to see all the detail of the bridgework.....but it does get the tiger thinking again....oh, dear ! :laugh:

Wow, this is awesome.  I love the curves on this bridge!  Would love to see a close up as well to see the detail a bit better.

It looks like you smashed the Brooklyn Bridge into the Golden Gate Bridge :laugh: I like the curved roadway section as well! :thumbup:
Why fix it when you can INNOVATE it?

Pretty cool!!  Are you planning on having support wires attached to the end corners of the upper structure?

Now this is a bridge!
Nice arch. It really looks like a real bridge. And the curved road deck is awesome.
It's only a pity that the top structure is a different style. It make it look a bit off.

Thank you for the comments.   Unfortunatley the top section is not a functional structure.  I may alter it at a later time or make it more into an arch.  I borrowed different design elements from local bridges where I am from.  The curved arch design was inspired by a bridge my friend made a couple years back -
I need to order a bunch of tiles to finish it off before I take some final pictures.
