Saginaw River Bridge

One of the main elements I wanted for my layout was a crossing of the Saginaw River with a swing bridge. While I liked the Walthers kit, I figured to be unique why not kitbash my own. The bridge's main structure was from the combination of two Atlas Code 83 Through Truss Bridge Kits. With their easy assembly and "good enough" detail the bridges made fun work while not spending tens of hours laboring to build a bridge girder by girder that is still a considerable 27" long. Alot of detail is still needed so stay tuned as I work this scene for a possible entry in the Walthers 2013 Catalog.
