Bailey's Bridge 1/87

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

some pics of Artitec's new 1/87 Bailey's Bridge. Bundeswehr used to have it in their arsenal, don't know if it saw action in the early 80's, so it is fiction ;)

Wow, how much real-estate does that take up?  It looks great!

Nice! You get a new appreciation for the Bailey bridge design when you see an armoured vehicle in the middle of a long span.

Nice.

 

Love the eye level photography too. Can’t but help think of Thunderbirds (which would, of course, involve it being blown up)!

Not sure about the German army, but the British army had these too. There's still one in place and in rgular use on the Stanford Battle Area in Norfolk here in the UK. Bloody things last forever!

Great diorama! Still used and it’s offspring. It’s amazing how many places around the world they crop up in.  Around the corner from me here in Oz are 2 footbridges made from panels, a car park fenced off with half buried panels and there is an arched bridge made from Bailey panels on the training area which is an interesting bit of engineering.

Very nice work :yes:
The natural environment is very realistic.
Water is especially good to me.
The story composition is also very good.

That's very interesting, I honestly thought it was much bigger, the detail at that scale is really fantastic!
