A few more shots from my route of the Iron Donger bridge near Mills Hill.

The Original........





The Model......



















This and previous models have been made in TS Modeler, But due to the problems I have had with this Program, I am now learning to use GMAX which has slowed me down somewhat, but I find it easier and better; once you master the basics.

Having passed under this bridge when walking the South Pennine Ring I can confirm that is a very good representation. Well done on an excellent bit of modelling.

PS For those who might be interested "the South Pennine Ring is an English canal ring which crosses the Pennines between Manchester and Huddersfield. It covers parts of five canals, and includes passage through the longest canal tunnel in Britain. It has only been possible to cruise it since 2002, when restoration of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal provided the return route across the Pennines."

A bit of useless information for you, at the ends of the new part of the bridge not the cast iron side, where the support wall is there was a cavity in the brickwork about 2 foot square and about 3 foot deep, we used to call it the Lions Den, and we were often dared by our mates to go into this to watch the trains passing inches from our heads, Scary, but if only I had a camera in them days.
