Thought I'd share my first attempt at bridge building - never tried anything remotely creative before, but I'm really happy with how it turned out
Started with a 3" stack of Foam Sheets and a 4" x 1" piece (not pictured). The stack will be the main structure, and the 4" piece will have brickwork carved and be stuck to the front.
Started by cutting and sanding the arches (these will be finished more perfectly later
Next up was carving the brickwork (note this bridge isn't based on anything in particular, just on what I thought would add interest to my layout)
Weathered/aged the bricks and masked for paint:
Started with a black coat
Brick red and various other shades over the black:
Finished by adding stonework and arches:
