What do you guys think? Would 15mm figures look ok on this bridge?

PS. I was planning to use it for a futuristic garden bridge, but I guess it's not period-specific, or even genre-specific, right? The question then is one about size/scale.

It's about wide enough for two figures and total height a bit over a figure's height so defiantly in a range I would accept if I had a need.

I think it would work OK for you Dan.

Okay, I'm ordering a couple then. At that price, what can I lose, right? :)

Thanks guys!

I'd order one first and see how it turned out. Stuff from China ships free using their envelope parcel program. This is almost certainly going to be shipped in a small bag, and this looks like the kind of thing that might not fare so well in that sort of shipping packet.

The seller also has a 1-2% running Negative and Neutral rating rate, which, given the likelihood of people not posting ratings, really means essentially nothing.

Ordering stuff from China is usually somewhat slow, but you can get some great stuff cheap. I just got some great rare earth magnets. Now all I have to do is run the lead tests.

Caveat Emptor vs. Carpe Diem.

eBay and Paypal offer insurance, so there's little risk.

Excellent points. Thanks guys!

I think I might buy myself a couple, at least.

Ive ordered 3 so am looking forward to seeing them.

Please, when you get yours, let us know how they compare in size to 15mm figures.

They arrived today in a fairly flimsy bag. I was worried they would be smashed, but they seem to be made of nice plastic similar to airfix kits. They look great. They are almost the perfect size for the small river section we use…a wee trim and they will sit in nicely…or an extra step added each end may be easier and look better. Anyway a couple of pics below showing them with a 15mm old glory figure. Now just gotta decide what colour to paint them! Now just gotta remember how to add pics….

Oh..just checked and it is wide enough for troops on an inch or 25mm wide base
