PostSubject: bridge width   Tue Jan 26, 2016 9:06 pm

I am building a bridge for my outside battle field. How wide should it be to accommodate all 1/16 scale tanks?

Is this an item for sale? Make sure to check posting location and I would just measure a tank with and put a few inches on it

Depending on the type you want to build Bud google WW II tanks on bridges to get an idea of scale. It really depends on whether it was a rail bridge which was favoured by tanks to support thier weight or a road bridge. And since you will want it to accommodate a "modern" tank too, (nudge, nudge, wink, wink) which ar 10 to 12" wide, I would make it at least 18 to 20" wide and 24" wouldn't hurt...

Bud, we DO have a couple bridges on the field that only accommodate "small" tanks, pretty much excluding Tigers and King Tigers. Makes for tactical challenges.
