I had great hopes for my 3D printed ore car, but due to some disappointing results I have put it on the backburner.
Instead I have been toiling away on the local MR-club layout. Mostly carpentery, but also some real modelling. You might remember the wooden bridge presented in an earlier post, and belive it or not, I have completed a H0 model based on it! It is slated for a *very* prominent spot on the club layout, so I had to make an as detailed a model as I was capable of. The fun thing is that it was built entirely with basic handtools. All the cutting was done freehand with a single edge razorblade. The holes for the NBW´s were drilled with a pin wise. I used Kappler wood and Grandt Line NBWs.
A full write up will be published in the Norwegian magazine “MJ-bladet”. Maybe I will translate the full article to english in the future, but this is all you get for now. And some images of course!

I remember the bridge I believe .. wasn’t that the one that looked like the photo could be taken in Colorado? In any case .. excellent modeling! Love it.
Yep, that´s the one. I am happy that I completed the project only a year or so after discovering the prototype. A very enjoyable project.
You have mastered the techniques shown in the Gazette many years ago. The bridge is beautiful. By the way, where did you find Floquil Driftwood. I have not seen any in probably 15 years.
Thanks for the thumbs up! Regarding the Floquil Driftwood, I bought it more than 20 years ago! I keep it just for fun, I dont actually use it. It´s rather overvalued in my opinion. Nash and Greenberg has a lot to answer for… Personally, I get better results with Builders in Scale “Silverwood”.
