    As I expanded my terrain collection I found that I was in need of a bridge to cross my river, I’ve tried to go with a generic wooden look suited to rural Eastern Europe, it’s a little wide so it will accommodate my figure basing.

    It’s all scratch built except for the Telegraph pole which is from Perfect Six Scenics and the tree from a Chinese eBay seller.

    That is very nicely modelled, you must have a lovely set-up.

    I have stared at this piece for ages – really nice. What base material do you use for your river systems and how wide / long is a typical section. Did you have to deal with any warping problems? – thanks Norm.

    A very nice piece indeed. Am I correct in assuming the bridge is made up of matchsticks or maybe toothpicks?

    Must say that’s a wonderful piece and I really like the way you’ve painted the water. Love to see a few pics of your terrain layout it must be quite striking,

    Cheers

    Beautiful. Like everyone else, I would love to see the whole setup.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone.
    @Norm Smith – the rivers are made with 5mm thick MDF that came in the packaging of our new oven, a typical section can be between 30cm – 80cm long and 17cm wide without warping,
    @Alexander Wasberg – the bridge is 2 kebab skewers to span the river with toothpicks glued on top.

    Ask and you shall receive, here’s a few pics I’ve taken of my current set up for a small skirmish game set in 1943 Russia, no river on these photos though.

    Not a 6mm big fan but i can see the interest for others on that scale, i find the scale very neat and tidy and what you have done is a great job, love the bridge and the wonderful detail, you are a credit to the hobby.
