Last night I had insomnia so upon seeing a photo I took last summer I was inspired to give it a try. Finished rev1 just a bit ago.

Panic
stricken is the only way to describe my reaction to this thread.  Really nice, but thankfully not quite the Arroyo Hondo Bridge (US101) because that would require a five foot matching SP trestle to complete the scene. 

Breathe, Mr. Wallet, breathe!  Nurse, a little oxygen for Mr. Wallet...

You should have insomnia more often.

What is the distance between the piers?  I need a highway bridge over my main and drill track. I'd be willing to cut up that part and rearrange it to put this beauty there.

How exactly did you cut the parts?  On the TB thread there is mention of laser cutting...

It is indeed cut with a laser. It's also etched with the laser to create the various surface effects and different depths. All the same techniques that created the NZT crawler.

Karin, if you proportioned tha model without drawings you are incredibly gifted.  I think it looks near perfect to you images.  Amazing.  :o
