|WOW, DID THE LIST OF INQUIRIES GET LONG FAST! I HAVE MORE THAN ENOUGH KITS TO
CAST NOW FOR A WHILE. SORRY, I HAD TO PUT THE KIT BACK IN RETIREMENT.
SUCCESS: Modelers liked this bridge. You all expressed a great interest in it at the Seattle 2012
National Narrow Gauge Convention!
BRASS: In order to continue with new projects I will make a limited number with the same resin
castings. I wanted to try brass to save casting time (as on the Cimarron) but making the brass
patterns will be yet another big project. Therefore, my previously mentioned brass lacing parts will not
be made. The resin looks great and works fine; they just take me a while to cast. I have a better
rubber now that will aid in getting more done.
LASER: Eyebars are laser cut with a few other parts.
CASTINGS: The molds will be updated to the new rubber for better life-time pulls and more accuracy.
ASSEMBLY: You will need to use fixtures to assemble the beams accurately and efficiently. I include
instructions on how to make a few very simple fixtures that will hold the parts in place.
GETTING ONE: Well, the list became filled very quickly. My intention was to make a few this year as I
have time because it is a nice model. A good bunch of modelers took me up on this so now this one is
back in retirement. I would like to thank everyone for their interest and appreciation of this bridge, my
first of many 1:48 kits!
Thanks for your interest in my renewing this cast resin bridge model. Email me for more info. Check
