The phrase "museum quality" gets tossed around a lot but this build definitely belongs in a museum.

Thanks everybody, unfortunately I can't dedicate a lot of time to modeling so my updates are not so frequent... (Am I the only one who has the impression, our daily work is getting more and more complex?)
Either way, here is the latest update: I completed the gangway that leads half around the abutement. To me it became a nearly endless bothery and in the end it is very fragile because of the tiny soldering joints. I will be happy when it is fixed in place - what you can see, is only a provisional installation. I am looking forward to the most pleasent part: the weathering  Grin

Impressive.

And, yes, work and the world in general are getting too complex.

Peter, that gangway is so nicely done, it looks good even before you add your usual amazing weathering.

Thanks very much, guys!
I want to take this opportunity to introduce the two guests on the gangway I received this morning. Modelu3d.co.uk printed them (of course for me Roll Eyes) in exact 1/50 scale.
They are some of the best figures available and it's an innovative company who offers an excellent service. I will have to modify them a little bit, but they fit perfectly in this period (1870-1890).

The figures really do look good and are appropriate for your supremely adequate modeling. -- Russ

The Modelu figurens are 3D scans of real people dressen up in period costumes. The figures are printed on  a B9 3D printer.

The cost is quite reasonable, and as many has already has noted, the quality is excellent.

Hello Peter,

have you ever thought about having yourself scanned? I did it and it's always a special highlight at exhibitions.

Congratulations great work.

The figures look good there. What material are they printed with? I had seen Modelu figures printed in a hard red wax used for making jewelry masters.
