New BLMA Brass Bridge Production Photos

We just received a production sample of our upcoming All-Brass, 150' Truss Bridge and I figured you all might like to get a first look at the model. 

As noted in our initial plans, the production models include walkways and rigid handrails.  These models are in production currently and expected just before the end of the year.

It is a thing of beauty.

Quick question... how hard would it be to remove the walkways?

Given that they look to be painted prior to assembly... should be easy to remove.  They only look to be attached from the bottom also.  So, you may have a few glue spots to touch up, but I don't think they would be soldered on or anything.

Nice model, Craig.  I thought the TrainCat stuff was nice, but this even blows their's out of the water.

I would like something like that for a diorama I'm working on.  The railing appears to be a little bulky but the rest will look great in photos.

Nice model, Craig.  I thought the TrainCat stuff was nice, but this even blows there's out of the water.

...exactly what I thought when I saw this pictures, way to go Craig (can I call you TrainTIGER from now on ?)  ;)

Very nice.  Now it's time to work on the box girder deck bridge I need to cross the Potomac...

Craig, that came out beautiful.  I remember seeing your artwork for these way back in early June.  The handrails and walkways look just like those you had in your early technical drawings.  I really like the depth of the etchings you used for the bridge.  The pre-production sample at the NSC, in Farmington was awesome, even though it didn't yet have the walkways installed that you had in your artwork.  The finished product looks even better.  Nice job!  8)

I think this bridge has persuaded me to build a new Free-MoN module!
