Making humpbacked bridges - cheap, cheerful and a trick.
« on: October 28, 2021, 10:20:25 PM »
Thought I'd post this. Nothing new and it's far from complicated, but there is a trick involved. Can you see it before I tell you what it is?

Mostly for the newbie, and not for those who already know how to suck an egg, it might be useful.

Excellent tutorial.  Great wrinkle on the road height as well.

That’s an excellent tutorial, and just how I like my war gaming table features: pleasing to the eye, but simple enough that I can actually complete them!

Totally right about the road bed height, it fools the eye quite effectively.

Great stuff and a really clear and concise tutorial.
Below is a link to my blog. It's the place where I write uninteresting things about little toy soldiers. I do this because I refuse to grow up and behave like an adult.

Great idea! I like the way you handled the deck.
