So my wife was cleaning out her garden shed and had 2 old bamboo plant holders she wanted to chuck. I was sitting with my neighbor having a wobbly pop when I looked at them and thought, I could make a bridge out of that crap! Cheap bridge Icon_e_biggrin So had a couple more wobbly pops and out come the power tools out of course! Did some rough breakdown of the stands and then turned it over to Bob my retired neighbor for detail work and he did a great job. All free materials and free labour, gotta like that! Cheap bridge Icon_lol Cheap bridge Icon_lol

Will bring it Saturday for fun...

Repurposing is the best kind of recycling, looks good.

I don't know, it looks kind of steep. My tank commander might get I nose bleed.  Wink 



Just kidding, looks good!  thumbs up 
I think there was a spot on the field that need a long bridge too, so it should work nicely.

I am building another one too but will give an advantage to T-34's and Shermans. Too narrow for Tigers! Hehehe...

We should try doing a battle with weight restriction on the bridges, this way it would limit some of bigger tanks and give the lighter tank a bigger role.

Nicely done .As a thought to the weight restiction ,how about a hinged panel that could be activated remotely to simulate a blown bridge.

Ed, you read my mind! Bob and I were discussing that as we are going to build a few bridges. I have access to lots of finished hardwood trim pieces that will work excellent. I was even thinking of a pill box with machine guns so you can plink tanks approaching if they have a Clark board in them...

Well, it was a couple of whiskeys for me and a couple of beer for Bob just for contemplation. Actual construction? I had 2 or 3 while I took the stands apart and Bob says a 6 pack for reconstruction.

We want to try a trestle bridge so I figure a 24 for Bob and a 26er for me by the time all is said and done! drunken  drunken  drunken
