Wow, Jef!
That bridge is an amazing build. I'm particularly impressed with the reinforcements. Have you counted them? Wish I had the patience...
As Mick said: A labour of love.

All best,

Many thanks guys ! Yes i have counted  :D. 4 parts per cells, 24 cells, so 96 parts for reinforcements. Plus the vertical ones oustide : 25 on each sides so 50 plus 96 => 146 parts. If you had the main beam,  (3 parts top and two sides) and the internal main framework, 25 parts. You have 174 parts on the full built today. It will continue to grow  >:D

 Thanks !

So today i have had the Four longitudinal reinforcements  ( 2 on top and 2 on bottom ). A little bit tricky to do,  :doh: because I need to attach, the .080" by .015" strip with lots of constraint in the 180 radius curve.

After that i have designed the pilars. Here is the plan :



Here is the first test of building a pillar. My geometry is not perfect for this one (symetrical problem), i will need to build a jig to have better shape and regularity on my next pillars.

But i am happy with the design it really match the prototype. You can also see at the base of the pillar the profile used to built it :



Here are some views with the bridge on the pillar. You can notice the longitudinal reinforcements on the bridge :





To check the volumes, here is a view with a kirara :



To be continued ... I think i will need to build 5 or 6 pillars for the full bridge.

Best regards.

Excellent Jef. Truly a masterclass in plasticard-work.
Thankyou.

Bytheway, I'm really liking your workbench/work space - I wish mine was so well organised.

Cheers
Kirky

Looks fantastic but I hope it's going to have some safety rails fitted, I'm getting vertigo just looking out of the window of the train.    :worried:    ;)

I had revamped my workshop last summer. It's realized with kitchen modules an Ikea wall modules Besta. It's a real pleasure to work in that nice space, ergonomic and well ligthed !  :heart2:

Here are some views, I am very proud of the installation made by myself  :-[:

@Bubule Thanks Jef, thats excellent. Im always interested in the way people work. Im also very envious of your space  :envy: Dont think I would dare post my work space on here - its just too messy.
Yours looks magnificent.

What a great workshop!  :thumbsup:

Also, after watching those videos, I realise I'd have loved to have travelled on that line on my recent trip to Japan. The sad thing is that I could have probably fitted it into my schedule if I'd tried.  :(
