I have been upgrading my 15mm scenery for WW2 NW Europe and one thing I wanted was a girder bridge – like a mini version of the Arnhem bridge. With this not being something that would be used in every game, I didn't want to spend too much on it and found some laser cut sides on Ebay for less than £2.50 GBP and made the rest from scraps of MDF and a piece of plasticard.

There is a full description with some more pictures on my blog here: link

Nothing stopping you from doing another span? Just an idea. Great job!

Thanks very much.

JMcCarroll that's right, with the magnet and key arrangement it would be quite easy to extend but my rivers are already quite wide and take up a lot of space on my little 6x4 table so I don't think it would work for me, except maybe for a special scenario. Part of the idea of the modular design (apart from protection against breakage) though was to be able to swap the ramps for different ones and I thought I might make a pair with the road then running on a raised bank, for example.

(Can't believe on first posting, it bleeped out a common word for a raised embankment, as widely used in the Netherlands for flood defence or to raise a road above an marshy or flood-prone area, for example.)

Very nice. Do you know what you searched for to find those girder sides?
