I hope you are all doing well in this strange time !

I haven't been able to do anything in my lift bridge project for a long time.

The winch was constructed well two and a half years ago.

In the meantime, a slightly crumbled side part appeared, but it was a bit unstable to build the winch out of it.

Since the winch is supposed to be functional, I did not dare to just solder rivets on both sides.
The parts should now be printed out of nickel silver.

Within a week, two perfectly dimensioned side parts came from the foundry today: D

Two "sand-lime stone bases" were milled from a 4.0 mm piece of brass. These later give a secure connection to the base plate. The airbrush will provide the right color impression.

Winde_29 (fspg2)

Winde_30 (fspg2)

Winde_31 (fspg2)

After the winch side parts were freed from the sprues, sandpaper files with increasingly fine grains were used.

In order to get a small impression, I have loosely put together the parts of the winch that have been finished so far.

Several small parts are still missing on the winch, e.g. the brake/locking mechanism, a few connecting profiles and rods, the hand crank ...

It will take some time before the entire bridge is finally assembled, but the pension is in sight.

Stay healthy :!: :!: :!:

More top notch work. I like your brass "sand-limestone" bases. I don't think I have ever seen stone modeled with brass before.
What happened to the crumbled side part?
