This is my final model of Bank Lane Railway Bridges. It took me several months to construct, roughly 20,000 tiny bricks placed on individually, a lot of patience and observation and hundreds of cups of tea!
I firstly built the two different bridges, I spent a few weeks making them in-between other parts of my studio work, I then marked out the shape of the walls on to a thick card and applied all the tiny bricks. The painting came next, followed by the building up of the hills formed from expanding foam and newspaper. After that it was pretty much just applying the scenery, tracks and ballast. I’m so happy with how this piece turned out. I strongly encourage anyone who takes an interest in model making to try making something, no matter how daunting it may seem. It has been a very challenging and rewarding project.
So cool!!! 20,000 … . Really nice archway and moss too.
