After browsing a score or 5 of pictures of old stone bridges, work has begun on a 40/54mm compatible toy bridge.
Just fits in the 4" grid, is wide enough for a wagon, and crosses the masking tape river nicely, hmm...hope it fits over the painted river, must check that before going farther. The angle of the top rail needs to broaden out a bit I think, or even be flattened though the straight line with an angle seems to be common in low lying areas as does the more difficult curved profile.
Still, its a beginning.
EXCERPT FROM APPENDIX 1 from Don Featherstone's Battles With Model Soldiers
(The book that got me started.)
"Nothing in these pages is a dictate, no word says you must or you shall do it this way. On the contrary, the book sets out from the very beginning to stimulate the reader to think for himself, and to use what he has read merely as a foundation for efforts and ideas which reflect his own temperament and character. Only in this way will he obtain maximum satisfaction from the hobby of battling with model soldiers."
