Good to see another Mumbles classic in the making: Will you model the details on the underside of the bridge too?
Looking at the original photo I see there are some subtle colours and textures involved
I'm gonna be compromising on some of the detail because frankly it would take forever to cut each little bit form plasticard to make even one of those crosses accuratly. I am going to try to cut some detailed bits for the main support columns, to give the widening at the top you can see. Looking back on what i have done so far i can see i should have used different sizes of tube for the uprights and the cross pieces. Oh well, it won't be perfect but it will be representative enough to work for me. The front of the bridge should be pretty easy to replicate.
As for the painting.. I might ask GrottAndy if he or his mate can paint it for me
I will certainly be using the grotty school of DIY tester pots to do it!!
