I made a bridge this evening for the field.

This will take the place of Roland`s trestle bridge in the centre of the field.

It is not a pretty; it is inspired by a rough wooden beam bridge I saw in my copy of `Tiger I On The Eastern Front`

This one has an inside width of 13 inches. As far as tank widths go, Panther is 8 inches, Tiger I is 9 inches and a KT is 10 inches, so everything should fit, if the driver is careful. Wink

Glen will this bridge have any booby traps for a certain Captain that we know?

The one that likes to roll his Sherman. Wink

Here we go.

Basically, we needed a "stand in" bridge for Roland's beautifully made trestle bridge which is made to go in the centre of the field.'


New Bridge Trestl11


Mine is a more utilitarian effort, "inspired" by the pictures of rough, timber bridges, constructed in Russia by the Wehrmacht Pioneers.

This one is made to fit the same space (35" long) and is solid enough to leave in the trailer with the other battlefield props.

These were taken indoors, because the weather was not cooperative, this evening.

I figure he will show off his aerobatics by hitting the one railing on a slight angle, have the track climb it, and do a barrel roll affraid

Aerobatics, they're not just for RC planes, any more Laughing

Look good and strong Glen!

Are you going to paint or go for the natural wood colour?

It was made to measure Wink

We did a bit of work on the field, today, so I tried the fit of the bridge.

At least in the dry (or not so wet) spots.

Holding the meet today would have been a muddy disaster Shocked

We are hoping for drying weather next week.

Naw, there was once a large & gorgeous trestle bridge in the centre of town. If you look through battle day photo's you'll see it. I think it's just not kept in the trailer.
