Building Bridges… #1

Road bridge and tunnel portal tested for fit

Modelling ‘Road Bridge 1’ – Part 1

As I mentioned before my plan for the river bridges is to start at the back and work forward. So, I’m starting with ‘Road Bridge 1’, along with its tunnel portal.

Marking out the profiles for 'Road Bridge 1'

I’m making the shape of the bridge out of MDF and then decorating it with a stone finish. Similarly, the tunnel portal is also cut from MDF. I’ve already started cladding this with a stone finish cut from cardboard. This will be worked up with paint and textures until I get the desired finish.

I keep test fitting the pieces to make sure everything looks and feels right. So far, so good!
